Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company
that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate
innovation to connect and secure the world, announced the company’s 5G
network emulation solutions have been selected by Quectel,
a global supplier of 5G and IoT modules, to accelerate commercialization
of industrial internet of things (IoT), mobile broadband and fixed
wireless access (FWA) applications.
Quectel selected Keysight’s 5G
RF DVT Toolset, part of Keysight’s suite of 5G network emulation
solutions, over the incumbent supplier to support its strategic goal of
providing a connected mobile ecosystem with commercial 5G modules.
Keysight’s RF DVT Toolset enables Quectel to validate protocol and radio
frequency (RF) performance of new designs in both sub-6GHz (FR1) and
mmWave (FR2) frequency bands.
“Mobile ecosystems around the world rely on Keysight’s connected 5G
workflow solutions to accelerate device development and
commercialization from early design to mobile operator acceptance and
manufacturing,” said Peng Cao, senior director of Keysight’s Commercial
Communications Group. “Our collaboration with Quectel underscores the
value leading industry players recognize in working with a proven
supplier of 5G test solutions that support global deployments in all
major 3GPP frequency bands.”
Quectel’s latest 5G modules (RG500Q, RM500Q, RG510Q and RM510Q) are
compliant with 3GPP Release 15 specifications and capable of both 5G
standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes. These modules feature
the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X55 5G modem from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
Keysight recently announced that the company established a
5G NR data call in Frequency Division Duplexing (FDD) mode, using the
Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G modem. Consequently, Keysight enables
device makers and their mobile ecosystems to validate 5G NR multi-mode
designs in both NSA and SA modes.
“Our collaboration with Keysight enables us to leverage the same tools
that leading chipset manufacturers and mobile operators use to validate
new 5G NR products,” said Leo Yao, 5G Product Director at Quectel. “As a
result, we can achieve our 5G go-to-market goals and help build a
