5G user experience depends on the device's performance, but networks are also complex. Testing in clean channel conditions is not enough to ensure that 5G devices will operate as expected in real environments. Channel emulation helps assess real-world RF performance to ensure a positive customer experience.


Keysight's PROPSIM Channel Emulation Solutions offer advanced end-to-end real-world performance testing of wireless devices, network infrastructure equipment, and WLAN access points in a laboratory environment. The first-to-market PROPSIM Channel Emulators offer the widest signal bandwidth and the highest number of fading channels in the industry, enabling you to address the complexities associated with the introduction of new technologies for 5G, satellite, aerospace and defense communication systems.

  • Dynamic multipath propagation
  • Range pathloss and blocking effects
  • Doppler from mobility and multipaths
  • Noise and synchronous programmable interference

Versatile and easy-to-use channel emulator tools enable users to test across a wide range of technologies, including:

  • 5G NR
  • LTE Advanced
  • WLAN 802.11ax and 802.11be
  • Massive MIMO and 3D Beamforming

Users have access to 24/7 support for facilitating validation of new product releases and verifying the performance of designs following implementation of new features prior to delivery.
