mmWaves provide plenty of new spectrum for mobile users. 5G NR mmWave deployments rely on full mobility support and 3D beamforming at new O-RAN and traditional base stations and mobile devices. RF propagation conditions at mmWaves are significantly more challenging than at Sub-6GHz due to high blocking.

Maximize 5G device performance for real-world operation at mmWaves with validated channel emulation.

S8802A mmWave Base Station Fading Performance Toolset:

  • Accelerates 5G launches by enabling realistic end-to-end, RF-to-RF, full signaling stack validation of mobile networks and mobile devices in lab
  • Offers a multi-probe end-to-end dual OTA test system that enables realistic multiple beam testing
  • Enables vendor independent KPI testing in lab
Deploy 5G with confidence and validate device and base station interoperability under real-world channel conditions.

Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTNs)

3GPP Release 17 paves the way for 5G non-terrestrial networks (NTNs). Integrating satellites and other aerial communication systems with terrestrial network infrastructure extends the range of 5G to remote areas. NTNs enable new and exciting use cases, including rural broadband, aircraft and high-speed train connectivity, network resilience, and global freight tracking. Explore Keysight’s comprehensive emulation and test solutions portfolio to accelerate NTN innovation.
