Keysight Virtual Drive Testing Toolset

Real-world, field to lab automated performance testing of mobile chipset, devices, and base stations in the lab

VDT Toolset provides tools across the entire device and base station R&D workflows and supports performance compliance testing. These tools seamlessly integrate Keysight’s industry leading PROPSIM F64 5G channel emulator and 5G Network Emulation Solutions and Keysight Nemo field measurement solutions.

  • Quickly and cost-effectively benchmark 5G NR multimode chipsets, devices and base stations across sub-6 GHz and mmWave frequencies in a laboratory environment
  • Convert field traces to lab environment with Field to Lab tool to overcome major real-world test challenges including repeatability and controllability
  • Validate product performance against supplementary test plans such as China Mobile high-speed train test plans
  • Quickly verify new product and software releases to assess end-users' experience when accessing mobile applications across key network conditions in field outdoor and indoor environment. Virtual Drive Testing Toolset allows fully automated release validation testing with a future-proof test solution.
  • Bridge the gap between lab and field testing through seamless real-world representation of the environment to accelerate release validation with repeatable field conditions
  • Streamline the performance and interoperability testing process from early R&D lab evaluation through to field testing and optimization
  • Perform reliable device benchmarking and resolution of issues found in the field using powerful script and device automation capability that allows virtual drive test routes to be repeated for different use case scenarios

VDT Toolset is an automated, lab-based performance and interoperability test solution that allow users to perform repeatable and realistic in-lab testing under field like mobility scenarios.

The automated performance and interoperability test solution uses data captured in the field to build tests that replay drive or indoor test routes by emulating real-world RF network conditions in a controlled laboratory environment. This replay can be performed with real network infrastructure or with a simulated network using Keysight's network emulator.
