Keysight Technologies has announced that Innogence, a vendor of 5G base stations, has selected its user equipment emulation (UEE) platform, UeSIM, to validate the performance of O-RAN compliant small cell infrastructure.
Innogence is the latest manufacturer within the open radio access network (RAN) ecosystem to choose Keysight's UEE systems for validating the performance of O-RAN compliant small cell infrastructure. Innogence is part of an expanding ecosystem established to support mobile operators with network equipment based on open RAN standard interfaces for cost-effective and flexible delivery of a diverse range of 5G services. As a result, more open RAN vendors are seeking Keysight's integrated portfolio to access unique end-to-end performance visibility from the edge of the radio access network (RAN) to the 5G core (5GC).
"By combining expertise in foundational technologies, such as 5G and virtualized RAN, with an expanded software-based solution portfolio, Keysight is helping the industry make the transition towards open RAN interfaces" said Cao Peng, senior director at Keysight.
UeSIM offers integrated sophisticated channel emulation capabilities which enable Innogence to accelerate verification of network elements aimed for deployment in a complex radio environment. It also provides access to a comprehensive range of real-world scenarios in frequency range 1 (FR1) and FR2 for protocol and load testing.
