Keysight EEsof EDA is introducing a new set of tools for 5G, starting with pre-5G modulation analysis. This new technology is geared toward innovators with 5G testing in mind.  The 89600 VSA software provides comprehensive analysis capabilities for pre-5G signals based on the Verizon 5G open trial specifications.  With the standardized pre-5G technical specifications, engineers are already taking steps toward signal analysis.

5G networks promise faster speeds, higher data rate, easier connectivity, and better network performance. Pre-5G allows users to experience certain 5G network elements while ensuring compatibility with their current 4G and LTE platforms.

 

Keysight’s latest 89600 VSA software helps break through the complexity of pre-5G, and will do the same for 3GPP 5G New Radio (NR). 3GPP 5G NR is the emerging global 5G standard. It is expected to be included in Release 15 of the 3GPP standard, which is due out later this year. With Keysight’s new 89600 VSA software release, early adopters can design and verify performance to the draft specification now, before it is published. Its extensive set of tools for demodulation and vector signal analysis enable you to explore virtually every facet of a signal and optimize even the most advanced designs.

Users can observe pre-5G uplink and downlink physical layer measurements based on the Verizon 5G specifications. The 89600 VSA software is a vital and effective tool that will help blaze the trail to the 5G frontier.

 

 

The latest 89600 VSA software has over 100 recorded demo signals available for trial users. Discover the fundamentals of pre-5G air interface parameters, physical channels and signals.
