New test platform illustrates the impact Keysight’s acquisition of Ixia is having in the wireless industry
- Keysight combines Ixia’s portfolio to enable innovative test solutions providing deeper insights into cellular and WiFi coexistence challenges
- The new Cellular + WiFi Emulation System provides simultaneous cellular and WiFi cellular signaling tests—including full protocol stack, from layer 1 to layer 7, for multi-mode devices
SANTA ROSA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 1, 2017 — Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today announced a solution that supports simultaneous cellular and WiFi testing. The T5510S Cellular + WiFi Emulation System is a powerful, flexible platform enabled by the combination of Keysight’s UXM network emulator and the Ixia Solutions Group’s Wave Test System. The result is an industry first—a test platform covering a complete cellular and WiFi system, from data traffic generation to physical transmission, layers 1 to 7.
“User experience testing in mobile devices requires evaluation of application performance under real world conditions,” said Satish Dhanasekaran, president, Communications Solutions Group, Keysight Technologies. “This solution combines the technologies of Keysight and Ixia to provide deeper understanding of coexistence challenges as devices interoperate across LTE and Wireless LAN systems.”
“Customers can view the performance of the complete protocol stack with the end-to-end performance verification needed for emerging and demanding applications such as IoT, connected car and 5G,” said Bethany Mayer, president, Ixia Solutions Group. “With the T5510S system, Keysight now offers industry-leading test capabilities to address interoperability challenges for multi-mode devices.”
The T5510S Cellular + WiFi Emulation System also includes Keysight’s flexible Test Automation Platform and ready-to-use, built-in test cases. This complete system delivers unmatched capabilities for testing with the latest cellular standards (LTE/LTE-Advanced/NB-IoT/Cat-M) as well as all WiFi protocols (802.11a/b/g/n/ac) under a wide range of traffic and RF emulation conditions.
By combining the best-in-class capabilities from Keysight and Ixia, the T5510S Cellular + WiFi Emulation System helps customers improve performance and time-to-market by prototyping, evaluating and diagnosing complex interoperability environments.
