  • Keysight test solutions drive accuracy and reliability in Thunderbolt 5 Certification
  • Partnership strengthens commitment to advancing industry standards and delivering superior Thunderbolt solutions

Santa Rosa, Calif. June 27, 2024

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), announced that Allion Labs has selected Keysight as its test partner for Thunderbolt 5 product certification testing. As a result, Allion is now an Intel-authorized certification lab for Thunderbolt 5 technologies.

Thunderbolt 5 represents a leap forward in wired connectivity, offering faster data transfer speeds, support for next-generation displays, and improved power delivery. With a bandwidth of up to 120 Gbps (gigabits per second), nearly three times more compared to Thunderbolt 4™, users can transfer massive files like high-resolution videos or complex 3D models in a fraction of the time, providing a smoother workflow, enhanced productivity, and a more immersive user experience.

The latest Thunderbolt solution uses a specific set of protocols and functionalities, and certification testing is required to ensure that products claiming to be Thunderbolt 5 compliant meet these rigorous standards. Together, Keysight and Allion are committed to advancing industry standards and delivering superior Thunderbolt solutions and services to their customers. This partnership marks a step forward in their shared mission to drive innovation and excellence in the industry.

Allion uses the following Keysight test and measurement products for Thunderbolt 5 certification validation:

Brian Shih, Chief Technology Officer at Allion Labs, said: "We are excited to collaborate with Keysight as our test partner for Thunderbolt 5 product certification testing.
