TEVET’s premier partner, Keysight Technologies provided the crucial evidence for Hong Kong’s Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) to successfully request a standard change at the 3GPP RAN4 #82 meeting in Athens, Greece in February.
While designing an NB-IoT terminal transceiver, ASTRI experts discovered an improper definition in the NB-IoT standard’s receiver wideband intermodulation requirement. Using SystemVue 2017 – which enables users to combine existing baseband, RF, and channel models together for evaluation of the entire system – and a NB-IoT library developed in collaboration with ASTRI, the data showed the flaws in the standard.
Dr. Meikei Leong, chief technology officer of ASTRI stated, “Our collaboration with Keysight not only improved the worldwide NB-IoT standard, but also helped us catch golden opportunities in the NB-IoT terminal market.”
