Keysight Technologies Introduces 5G Base Station Manufacturing Test Solution Accelerating Deployment of 5G Networks

Compact, scalable solution allows network equipment manufacturers to rapidly transition from design validation to volume manufacturing

SANTA ROSA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 25, 2018 — Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, today announced the Keysight S9100A 5G multi-band vector transceiver (S9100A). The S9100A is a compact and scalable 5G base station manufacturing test solution that enables network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) to streamline volume test of 5G New Radio (NR) infrastructure equipment, accelerating deployment of 5G networks.

Keysight’s 5G base station manufacturing test solution leverages common hardware and software platforms (including Keysight’s PathWave) which support the latest 3GPP 5G NR Rel. 15.2.0 standards. This enables wireless equipment manufacturers to easily transition from R&D design validation, to integration and verification, to volume manufacturing. It also delivers the scalability NEMs need to cost-effectively and quickly validate complex 5G designs across both sub-6GHz (FR1) and mmWave (FR2) frequency bands in over-the-air (OTA) and conducted test environments.

The S9100A uses Keysight’s new PXIe vector transceiver (VXT) (Keysight M9410A) to provide industry-leading RF performance in a compact modular design, for improved efficiency and scalability in manufacturing test. Keysight’s VXT offers wide bandwidth support of up to 1.2 GHz, combined with high-performance mmWave transceiver heads, to deliver best-in-class Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) and Adjacent Channel Leakage Ratio (ACLR) performance across FR1 and FR2 in a small footprint. Additional information on Keysight’s VXT solution is available at http://www.keysight.com/find/vxt-pxie-backgrounder and images can be found here https://www.keysight.com/find/vxt-pxie-images.

“The introduction of Keysight’s 5G base station manufacturing test solution enables network equipment manufacturers around the world to ramp up 5G manufacturing,” said Giampaolo Tardioli, vice president of Keysight’s Network Access group. “The scalability across sub-6GHz and mmWave frequencies, compact design and superior RF performance of the S9100A, offer users a clear and rapid path from design validation to volume manufacturing.”
