Keysight’s 5G Network Emulation Solutions enable the 5G device ecosystem to accelerate from development to deployment. The solutions span and connect the entire device workflow from R&D and design validation, to conformance verification, carrier acceptance and manufacturing. The integrated software-centric approach, with a common scripting engine, 5G stack and advanced analysis tools allows users to eliminate disconnected workflows across the device ecosystem and between teams to achieve more cost-efficient test methods. Exploit a high level of flexibility and control to fast-track test case creation and gain deeper insights from your analysis processes.
Keysight’s 5G Network Emulation Solutions are built on the E7515B UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform – a highly-integrated signaling test platform with multi-format stack support, rich processing power and abundant RF resources. Supporting the latest 3GPP Release 15 and beyond, the UXM 5G enables users to establish a 5G call with a device under test (DUT) in different 5G NR deployment modes (non-stand alone (NSA) and stand-alone (SA)) and frequency bands (FR1 and FR2) and perform signaling test in terms of device RF characteristics, protocol compliance and functional key performance indicators. It also supports LTE and C-V2X signaling formats.
The highly-integrated design of the UXM 5G optimizes use of lab space and supports extended test coverage in a single unit, including the following capability:
- 5G NR 8CC DL and 4 CC UL 2×2, with LTE 2CC
- Wide bandwidth in each RF port
- Multi Angle of Arrival test
- Internal fading for both 5G NR and LTE formats
Frequency extensions to high IF and mmWave are supported with the use of a common interface unit and remote radio heads (RRH).
Users can validate DUT performance Over-the-Air (OTA) with chambers designed for different test cases across the device workflow.
