Applications: High-volume test of 5G NR network equipment and radio components

  • 5G NR base station transceiver systems
  • 5G NR components, including remote radio heads (RRH), distributed units (DU), active antenna arrays, amplifiers, chipsets


  • Lower Cost of Test with reduced footprint vs. benchtop instruments and extremely high test-throughput (“cloud ready”)
  • OTA readiness saves space and cost with single bi-directional remote heads, with in-head switching for 2 polarizations, across all 24.25 to 43.5 GHz bands, delivering best Power and EVM at chamber
  • Manufacturing Effectiveness: 1.2 GHz BW, Tx/Rx with low EVM and ACLR, operates as single instrument (includes: switching, heads, API, measurements), easy automation with calibrated system accuracy that reduces rework and false verdicts


  • Wideband signal generation and analysis of 5G NR (3GPP Release 15 and higher) waveforms in both: FR1 (380 MHz to 6 GHz) and FR2 (24.25 to 43.5 GHz)
  • Features “OTA-friendly” expandable architecture: avoids high losses from switching and long cable runs, supports one or two remote mmWave heads and polarizations, and multiple Tx/Rx channels

Measurement applications and software

  • The S9101A system includes Keysight N90E1S91A 5G Multi-Band Vector Transceiver Application (X-Series Application).
  • Additional recommended software: N7631C Signal Studio Pro for 5G NR, N7630C for pre-5G, N7608C for custom IQ and OFDM, 89600 VSA software, and KS8400A Test Automation Platform

The Keysight S9101A 5G Multi-Band Vector Transceiver with one or two transceivers covers FR1 (380 MHz to 6 GHz) along with one or two mmWave transceivers that covers FR2 (24.25 to 43.5 GHz).
