Industry 4.0 5G Device Validation

Ultra-reliable, low-latency communications (URLLC) and 5G Time Sensitive Networks (TSN) features are critical features for Industry 4.0 networks.  Automating the tests using a standard platform increases the accuracy of the test while saving time and cost. This demo highlights the integration of Keysight’s UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform emulating a 5G network with Siemens’s 5G industrial gateway creating a 5G network. An industrial robotic arm that acts as an industrial device is controlled using Keysight’s PathWave Test Automation solution built on OpenTAP.

Time-Critical Applications for IIoT

Time Sensitive Networks (TSN) is a set of standards specifying Ethernet-based communication. It is an enabling technology for supporting real-time traffic. In this demo, we will show how to wirelessly control the position of a balancing ball. This demo is a joint demo developed in collaboration with Intel Corporation, its objective is to explore the importance of low latency for time-sensitive applications and how those can be enabled by 5G TSN.

O-RAN Fronthaul Conformance

There is a high demand for O-RAN conformance solutions – operators are investing in labs to confirm that the O-RAN equipment that they are planning to deploy conforms to O-RAN Alliance specifications. Keysight offers an automated platform for radio unit validation, characterization, and end-to-end O-RAN interoperability, as well as both O-RAN and 3GPP conformance using a common hardware setup. This demo will showcase the O-RAN radio unit test automation for O-RAN Fronthaul conformance.

O-RAN Integration and Interoperability Test

In order to help O-RAN Alliance members accelerate the integration of multi-vendor solutions, Keysight has expanded its KORA portfolio with a combination of analysis and monitoring solutions to provide insights on how real devices interoperate with each other. The Open RAN Studio Analytics and WaveJudge Wireless Application Toolset are a first to market comprehensive solution for O-DU/RU interoperability test. In this demo, we'll show:

  • Unique full-stack insights (O-RAN/3GPP) with Keysight PathWave Vector Signal Analysis and WaveJudge
  • Radio Centric insight for base station integrators  
  • Automated detection of O-RAN protocols violations
