December 4, 2014

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today announced it co-hosted a 5G and millimeter-Wave (mmWave) workshop with Kwangwoon University Radio Research Center, Seoul, South Korea. The 5G event, held in October, was the first co-hosted event in the region with over 190 in attendance.

“The 5G & mmWave workshop is the result of strategic collaboration between Keysight and Kwangwoon University Radio Research Center,” said Duk-Kwon Yoon, general manager and president of Keysight South Korea. “Through this workshop we were able to present new technologies and solutions on 5G and mmWave and demonstrate our leadership position in next-generation test technologies.”

“We are delighted to be working with the research community and bringing our measurement expertise to the enabling technologies for 5G,” said Roger Nichols, Keysight 5G program manager. “The insights that our teams receive by collaborating on these complex topics will enable even better measurement solutions as this technology advances to standardization and commercialization.”

The event theme ‘‘Taking 5G from Vision to Reality” focused on 5G and mmWave research, solutions and technologies and included the following topics.

“The topics we covered were of such great interest to the 5G research community that the workshop was completely booked to capacity,” Yoon added.

“The workshop was a result of great collaboration with Keysight,” said Hyun-chol Shin, chief of the Radio Research Center (RCC), Kwangwoon University. “Keysight, the global leader of electronic test and measurement, and RRC expect to keep showing the advanced research results on 5G by continuing this successful collaboration.”

Keysight is a member of the Korean 5G Forum and also was a silver sponsor for the recent 5G Global Summit during the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference held in Busan South Korea in late October.

The workshop was another opportunity for Keysight to showcase its mmWave and wideband signal generation and analysis test application using its high-speed M8190A arbitrary waveform generator, E8267D vector signal generator, and N9030A vector signal analyzer and DSOS804A oscilloscope.
