At the 2023 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS), being held June 11-16 at the San Diego Convention Center, Keysight’s technical experts will highlight microwave and RF innovations to help customers accelerate 5G and pioneer 6G in booth 835. With an end-to-end portfolio of product development solutions that quickly solve design, emulation and test challenges, Keysight is enabling RF advances in non-terrestrial networks (NTNs), IoT networks and massive MIMO.

Keysight will present the following demonstrations that are accelerating RF innovations:

  • Production Open RAN and Over-the-Air (OTA) Testing for 5G Massive MIMO Radio Demonstration of live Open RAN Radio Unit (O-RU) testing.
  • 6G Vector Component Analyzer Solution – Demonstration with Nokia Bell Labs showing power amplifier measurements in the 6G sub-terahertz (sub-THz) D-Band frequency band under wideband stimulus conditions.
  • 5G–NTN Component Evaluation – Demonstration of the calibration and characterization of NTN components used with dual-polarized phased arrays for mmWave communication systems. Showcases Keysight's Phased Array Antenna Calibration Manager, a phased array antenna OTA calibration and characterization test solution.
  • Emulate Non-Terrestrial 5G  Demonstration of Keysight's NTN testbed applying timing and Doppler pre-compensation, using extended hybrid automatic repeat request and measuring device-under-test block error ratio and throughput.
  • Test 5G Amplifiers 50% Faster – Demonstration of Keysight's newly introduced ENA-X vector network analyzer that reduces the characterization of 5G component designs by up to 50 percent.
  • 5G Field Signal Analysis – Demonstration of Keysight's handheld N9953B FieldFox field test solution to demodulate OTA transmissions with a frequency coverage up to 54 GHz and a bandwidth up to 120 MHz.
  • DVB-S2X Digital Twin – Demonstration of an up-converter digital twin with the Keysight PathWave System Design to validate RF performance against real-world measurements.
  • First Pass Success for 5G / mmWave Circuit and System Design – Demonstration of PathWave ADS 2024 to accelerate mmWave MMIC module design with an integrated EM-circuit simulation.
  • Accelerate EMC and Wireless Compliance Testing of Wi-Fi 6E / 7 Devices – Demonstration of the IOT0047A IoT Regulatory Compliance Test Solution to quickly validate compliance against the latest FCC, ETSI, KCC, MIC, SRRC and DFS requirements.
