Keysight 5G Solutions

Evolution. Revolution. Reality.

Keysight wireless design and test tools enable the exploration of new technologies needed for next-generation 5G communications. In design and test, our solutions help innovate across new and existing technologies as new ideas are transformed into reality. The development of 5G depends on up-to-date tools that let designers easily explore new signals, scenarios and topologies.

As the leading provider of test and measurement solutions for wideband RF, microwave and millimeter-wave technologies, we have two primary goals in 5G. One is to assist commercial researchers as they accelerate the development and verification of new-generation designs. The other is to help researchers in academia explore groundbreaking concepts with greater precision and deeper confidence.

We are supporting these efforts with an unmatched range of 5G solutions based on Keysight hardware and software products. All will assist engineers and scientists as they drive the evolution of existing technologies, create revolution through new innovations, and transform the vision of 5G into reality.

Keysight’s Research Partnership and Helping to Create Standards

  • Keysight plays an important leadership role by enabling dedicated program to drive 5G Advanced Research and Experiment together with key early 5G players. Active members in the leading 5G forums and consortia as well as the various standard bodies such as 3GPP and Wi-Fi alliance. We serve on more standards committees than any other T&M vendor enabling us to work closely with our customers. This ensures that Keysight is not only helping to define next generation standards, but also the test procedures. Because of our close relationship with the industry we develop the right test instruments. We provide ongoing new products to the market with enough headroom for the new upcoming test challenges
  • Keysight continues to invest in research. Keysight Laboratories is the central applied research laboratory of Keysight, dedicated to providing breakthrough competitive advantages that result in market leadership and value for customers. Our investments in research ensure that our solutions and our customers stay in front.
  • Keysight Laboratories is staffed by a team of world class researchers, including 4 IEEE Fellows and 3 Keysight Fellows. The research team has deep expertise across a broad range of technical disciplines, including RF & microwave, wireless, photonics, ASIC design, measurement science, distributed systems and software.
