Keysight Enables OnePlus to Demonstrate First 5G Smartphone Connection in Leading UK Mobile Operator Lab

Demonstration uses Keysight’s 5G network emulation solutions to showcase
flagship 5G device powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform

SANTA ROSA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#5Glt;/agt;–Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company
that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate
innovation to connect and secure the world, announced the first
successful demonstration of a 5G data connection using a 5G smartphone
in a leading UK mobile operator’s lab. The connection was established
using Keysight’s 5G network emulation solutions and OnePlus’ flagship 5G
smartphone, powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 855 Mobile Platform
with Snapdragon X50 5G modem and antenna modules with integrated radio
frequency (RF) transceiver, RF front-end and antenna elements.

The demonstration enabled OnePlus,
a global mobile technology company, to secure a key partnership with the
UK mobile operator, paving the way for the first commercial 5G
smartphone release on the operator’s network in the United Kingdom later
this year. The 5G smartphone from OnePlus delivers superior experiences
in areas such as imaging, audio, and gaming as a result of Qualcomm
Technologies’ new flagship mobile platform, which supports multi-gigabit
5G, industry-leading artificial intelligence (AI), and immersive
extended reality (XR).

“We are excited to be working closely with OnePlus to bring their first
5G smartphone to market,” said Kailash Narayanan, vice president of
Keysight’s wireless test group. “Early 5G collaborations across the
wireless industry are enabling Keysight to deliver differentiated 5G
solutions, thereby accelerating plans of global mobile operators to
deploy 5G networks.”

Keysight’s 5G network emulation solution leverages Keysight’s UXM
5G Wireless Test Platform
to support device validation across
protocol, radio frequency (RF), and radio resource management (RRM) in
both sub-6GHz and mmWave spectrum. The connected mobile device ecosystem
around the world, consisting of chipset manufacturers, device OEMs and
mobile operators, use Keysight’s 5G network emulation solutions to
accelerate validation of key 5G New Radio (NR) capabilities.

“Keysight’s leading 5G solutions have already played an instrumental
role in enabling us to achieve key industry milestones, starting with
the world’s
first 5G Tweet
in October of last year,” said Carl Pei, Co-founder
of OnePlus. “Our collaboration with Keysight has facilitated our ability
to confidently validate new designs and ensure they comply with rapidly
evolving 5G NR standards.”
