Keysight announced that Qualcomm Technologies is working with the company to accelerate small cell deployment supported by 5G virtualized radio access network (vRAN) architecture.
Keysight's 5G Multi-Band Vector Transceiver and Qualcomm Technologies' 5G RAN solutions speed development of radio units (RU) critical to addressing a wide range of 5G use cases. The transceiver is a PXI-based compact solution that enables automated testing of the transmitter and receiver characteristics of a 5G new radio (NR) base station, according to the 3GPP specifications. The solution accelerates verification of small cell RUs using the 5G NR capability of Qualcomm FSM100xx to support a smooth transition from product design to manufacturing test.
The company’s 5G solution portfolio enables network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) and mobile operators to address a wide range of test, validation and optimization requirements related to the deployment of disaggregated networks using vRAN architecture and Open RAN standard interfaces. The integrated solution portfolio creates unique end-to-end performance visibility from the edge of the radio access network (RAN) to the 5G core (5GC).
