Enabling end-to-end conformance, interoperability and performance validation of open RAN equipment
SANTA ROSA, Calif. and NEW DELHI, India, April 13, 2022
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that delivers advanced design and validation solutions to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that Tech Mahindra, a leading provider of digital transformation, consulting and business re-engineering services and solutions, has selected Keysight Open Radio Architect (KORA) solutions to certify 5G equipment of open radio access network (O-RAN) in a 5G O-RAN test lab facility located in New Jersey, USA.
Leveraging KORA solutions enables Tech Mahindra's 5G O-RAN lab to perform end-to-end validation of designs developed or deployed by communication service providers (CSPs), independent software vendors (ISVs), original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and original design manufacturers (ODMs) in compliance to specifications defined by the O-RAN ALLIANCE. This ensures that the entire O-RAN system, built on open standards and disaggregated network architectures, performs as expected in terms of data speed, capacity, connection latency and security.
"Keysight is pleased to provide Tech Mahindra with integrated test solutions for rigorous interoperability, performance and security validation under real-world conditions," said Cao Peng, vice president and general manager of Keysight's wireless business. "As a result, Tech Mahindra can cost-effectively support a global ecosystem of vendors, enterprises and service providers with a comprehensive range of O-RAN test services."
Keysight will equip Tech Mahindra's O-RAN lab with several KORA solutions, including RuSIM, DuSIM, CuSIM and CoreSIM. These solutions allow Tech Mahindra to validate the performance of 5G standalone O-RAN systems consisting of O-RAN radio units (O-RUs), centralized units (O-CUs) and distributed units (O-DUs). Keysight offers a wide range of O-RAN test, emulation and optimization solutions that enable vendors of small cells, macro cells and cloud RAN as well as mobile operators, test labs and hyperscale data centers to verify functionality and compliance to standards and system performance prior to live network deployment.
"As O-RAN implementations continue to grow, innovative test solutions are needed to make them more intelligent, and interoperable for 5G deployment," said Rohit Madhok, Senior Vice President and Global Head of Digital Engineering Services, Tech Mahindra. "Tech Mahindra's NXT.NOWTM strategy enables us to accelerate 5G adoption and re-imagine an enterprise's journey towards the future of connectivity. Through this collaboration with Keysight, Tech Mahindra's O-RAN lab facility empowers CSPs, ISVs, OEMs and ODMs around the world to validate end-to-end performance of O-RAN implementations."
Tech Mahindra leverages the company's NXT.NOWTM framework, which enhances ‘Human Centric Experiences' to focus on investing in emerging technologies and solutions that enable digital transformation and meet the evolving needs of the customer.
