TEVET’s premier partner, Keysight Technologies is helping you achieve 5G first-to-market goals with its pre-5G modulation analysis option available in the latest 89600 VSA software release. Pre-5G is a 5G radio specification published by Verizon Wireless, in cooperation with partner companies. The specification targets fixed, wireless access at 28-GHz frequencies for initial trials and deployments.
The new 89600 VSA provides comprehensive time, frequency, and modulation domain analysis for pre-5G signals based on the Verizon 5G open-trial specification. You can configure result traces (e.g., acquisition time and spectrum), pre-5G specific modulation quality metrics, and traces for quick and easy identification of signal characteristics. In addition, you can troubleshoot intermittent error peaks and repeated synchronization failures.
3GPP 5G NR is the emerging global 5G standard and is expected to be included in the next release in 2018. With Keysight’s new 89600 VSA software, you can design and verify performance to the draft specification now and be fully prepared to work with the future official standard. After the standard is published, Keysight will enhance the 89600 VSA software and its pre-5G functionality with standard-compliant 5G NR measurements. This will further simplify 5G NR signal analysis and in turn 5G NR development.
