SHOW NEWS: Keysight participates in phase 2 of China’s IMT-2020 5G trials


Keysight has successfully completed the interoperability development tests (IoDT) for phase 2 of China’s IMT-2020 5G trials.

Organized by the China IMT-2020 group, the company worked alongside Huawei, ZTE, Datang and Ericsson to fulfill the tests based on advanced 5G candidate signal generation, demodulation and analysis solution.

As the company continues to work toward the advancement and commercialization of 5G, Keysight used R&D expertise and application engineers to implement customer solution strategies – promoting test progress and solving technical problems in the test environment.

The tests achieved optimal RF performance – an error vector magnitude (EVM) of around 1% per 26GHz and 800MHz bandwidth – minimizing errors and revealing the real device under test (DUV) performance, thanks to the company’s UXA broadband 110GHz signal analyzer, signal source, 89601B VSA software, and K3104 signal optimizer.

“China’s IMT-2020 promotion group is an important organization for promoting the development of 5G technology,” said Steve Yan, vice president at Greater China Field Operation, Keysight.

“We are glad to see the efforts and great results we are making in promoting 5G technology advancement and in helping Chinese and global NEMs accelerate the validation of their 5G key technologies.”

As China works on the IMT-2020 5G trial and 3GPP standardization process, Keysight will continue to closely engage with its contributing partners.

“5G is a significant opportunity for China’s telecommunication industry,” said David Wei, general manager at China Communications Operation, Keysight. “The successful completion of IoDT of phase 2 of China’s IMT-2020 5G trials fully demonstrates our strong 5G R&D and technical capability.”

Make sure you visit Keysight at Automotive Testing Expo in Novi, Michigan next week. The company will be exhibiting on booth 2008 at The Suburban Collection Showplace from October 24-26.
