Uses Keysight’s end-to-end test solutions to validate radios and distributed units
SANTA ROSA, California, December 17, 2020
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company helping businesses, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that ArrayComm is the end-to-end portfolio of the company’s test solutions to accelerate the development of network devices according to the O-RAN standard.
ArrayComm, a provider of PHY software and physical layer (hardware) components for LTE and 5G base stations, has selected Keysight’s integrated testing portfolio to deploy O-RAN radios and distributed units (O-RUs and O-DUs) validate. ArrayComm supports wireless operators who deploy multi-vendor open networks to provide a wide range of advanced connectivity services. Keysight’s test solutions enable ArrayComm to verify the performance of network components prior to deployment, resulting in an optimized customer experience.
“ArrayComm’s use of Keysight’s edge-to-core solutions – from the edge of the radio access network (RAN) to the core of the network – reflects their appreciation for an integrated portfolio that enables the validation of our 4G and 5G solutions, using different solutions can accelerate chipset platforms for a wide range of O-RAN providers and cellular operators, ”said Giampaolo Tardioli, vice president of Keysight’s network access testing group.
Validation of the performance of 5G radio access and core network functions across radio and optical domains is necessary for mobile operators to successfully deploy disaggregated networks based on open standard interfaces. Keysight offers a comprehensive test portfolio for end-to-end performance testing of all 5G network elements, extending from the physical layer to the application layer. Keysight’s open RAN test solutions enable O-RU, O-DU, and central processing units (O-CU) providers to verify designs conform to the latest O-RAN specifications.
“As a wireless communications system provider with extensive experience in commercial delivery and a solid heritage in PHY and intelligent antenna technologies, it is important to align our efforts with leading 5G companies like Keysight to help address the complexities introduced by Open RAN,” said Xin Huang. Chief Executive Officer for ArrayComm. “With Keysight’s test solutions, ArrayComm can verify compliance with the 3GPP and O-RAN standards for each component, verify interoperability between network components, and ensure end-to-end performance and reliability.”
ArrayComm selected Keysight’s vector transceiver (VXT) to validate the transmitter and receiver performance of a 5G base station (gNodeB) equipped with MIMO (4 × 4 multiple input, multiple output) antenna technology. ArrayComm will use Keysight’s UeSIM, a User Equipment Emulation (UEE) solution platform, and RuSIM, a platform that generates Internet Protocol (IP) traffic load, to perform real-world scenarios across the protocol stack for the O-RAN infrastructure validate.
