In the innovation age, technology advancements are always in development. The next generation of cellular technology will make huge improvements in bandwidth utilization, data delivery, and application enablement. We work with the community of innovators to help define 6G standards. It is expected that 6G will offer download speeds approaching 1 terabit per second, one micro-second latency, and unlimited bandwidth. 6G will enable ingenious ways for people to interact with their surroundings, including instantaneous communication, connected robotics and autonomous systems, and wireless artificial intelligent interactions. Building upon our leadership and expertise in 5G, we can help you make the vision of 6G a reality.

6G R&D Testbed

Addressing the bandwidth and performance demands of 6G is challenging.

Keysight's R&D wideband sub-terahertz (THz) testbed features an arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) that generates a wideband intermediate frequency (IF), which is upconverted to H-band (220-330 GHz). The signal is downconverted to an IF and digitized with a UXR high-performance oscilloscope, then demodulated and analyzed using PathWave Vector Signal Analysis (VSA) software.
