Keysight Technologies has extended its collaboration with NTT DOCOMO.
Keysight is a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world.
The company will be providing first-to-market 5G network emulation solutions for characterizing and validating new 5G New Radio (NR) mobile devices.
Keysight’s 5G NR network emulations solutions will enable NTT DOCOMO to assess the performance of new 5G mobile devices and address new technical challenges of deploying a 5G
Keysight’s solutions allow users to validate the protocol signaling and Radio Frequency (RF) performance of 5G NR mobile devices in a laboratory environment. Keysight’s comprehensive mmWave over-the-air (OTA) test capabilities combine network emulation solutions with anechoic chamber, such as Keysight’s Compact Antenna Test Range (CATR), which is consistent with 3GPP’s decisions approving the chamber as an indirect far field test methodology.
The companies together will also develop specific test scenarios for their mobile ecosystem to ensure new 5G mobile devices will operate as expected on their network. This enables NTT DOCOMO’s ecosystem to reduce R&D efforts and accelerate market introductions of new 5G mobile devices.
