Keysight Technologies extends the company's collaboration with Bluetest to integrate Keysight's 5G new radio (NR) network emulation solutions with Bluetest's reverberation chamber for Over-the-Air (OTA) testing of 5G NR devices in sub-6GHz (FR1) frequency bands. The integration of Keysight's 5G-based network emulation solutions with Bluetest's reverberation chambers (including Flow software support), enables mobile operators, and their respective mobile device ecosystems, to quickly and repeatably verify the data throughput performance of 5G NR devices operating in FR1.
"Extending our close collaboration with Keysight enables Bluetest to provide customers the ability to upgrade existing Bluetest chambers to support 5G NR on sub-6GHz frequencies," said Kjell Olovsson, chief executive officer at Bluetest. "By integrating Keysight's leading 5G network emulator with Bluetest's reverberation chamber, we can test devices under multipath conditions using multiple input multiple output (MIMO) technology, helping mobile operators accelerate 5G deployment in FR1."
"We're excited to collaborate with leading OTA system suppliers such as Bluetest to extend our 5G NR OTA test capability into the widely adopted FR1 bands," said Kailash Narayanan, vice president and general manager of the Wireless Test business at Keysight Technologies. "Leading chipset and device manufacturers around the world use Keysight's network emulation solutions to verify that their designs comply to the latest 3GPP Release 15 5G NR standard."
