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
  • Power, SEM, ACLR, EVM and more measurements using familiar and industry proven application software (N9085EM0E 5G NR Measurement Application)


  • 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 22.7 GHz to 49.2 GHz bands, delivering best Power and EVM at chamber
  • Manufacturing Effectiveness: 1.2 GHz BW across the entire frequency range for 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
  • Minimize test development time by reusing existing code from other Keysight non-signaling solutions like E6681A, S9110A and S9101A
  • Supports both FR1 and FR2 measurements in the same system without the need to re-cable the test setup


  • Wideband signal generation and analysis of 5G NR (3GPP Release 15 and higher) waveforms in both: FR1 (380 MHz to 13 GHz) and FR2 (22.7 GHz to 49.2 GHz)
  • Features “OTA-friendly” expandable architecture: avoid 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 S9115A system includes Keysight N9085EM0E 5G NR Measurement Application, Y9085EM0E 5G NR Non-Signaling Waveform and Measurement 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 S9115A 5G Multi-Band Vector Transceiver with one or two transceivers covers FR1 (380 MHz to 13 GHz) along with one or two mmWave transceivers that covers FR2 (22.7 GHz to 49.2 GHz).
