Keysight’s 5G protocol R&D toolset accelerates chipset and device manufacturers’ pre-5G and 5G NR development through efficient testing of advanced protocol features
Keysight is collaborating with 5G market leaders to speed up the development of the latest 5G technologies


Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today announced the industry’s first 5G protocol test solution designed to support leading chipset and device manufacturers developing the next generation of cellular devices. Keysight is currently working with mobile operators on early trials and 5G deployments.

Keysight’s 5G Protocol R&D Toolset, the first in a series of network emulation solutions for 5G, covers the diverse global spectrum requirements specified in the pre-5G and 3GPP 5G NR standards. The 5G toolset allows efficient testing of advanced 5G features, including beamforming at mm-Wave frequencies as well as state-of-the-art protocol testing with full access to layer 1 and layer 2 parameters. The built-in protocol state machine enables developers to easily create and execute test cases, debug errors, and fully analyze results, thereby streamlining the 5G device workflow.

5G market leaders across the globe rely on Keysight’s experience and expertise in RF and protocol test to speed up the delivery of the latest technologies. Keysight’s 5G network emulation solutions offer valuable insights into the performance of prototypes—enabling developers make informed decisions about their designs.

“We are very excited to be at the forefront of the 5G technology and delivering new solutions throughout the 5G ecosystem,” said Satish Dhanasekaran, vice president and general manager, Wireless Test, Keysight Technologies. “With the launch of the industry’s first 5G protocol R&D toolset, developers will gain the ability to seamlessly prototype designs as they migrate from pre-5G to 5G NR.”
