Keysight’s 5G Device Testing Solution Selected by KT to Deliver 5G Services


SANTA ROSA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that provides advanced design and validation solutions to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that KT company, formerly Korea Telecom, a South Korean mobile operator, has selected Keysight’s 5G device testing solution to verify the advanced features of the new 5G radio (NR) critical to delivering cutting-edge 5G services.

KT is committed to providing quality 5G connectivity services nationwide to consumers and businesses. The two companies began a collaboration more than five years ago to advance the development of 5G technology. KT selected Keysight’s protocol research and development (R&D) toolset to accelerate the launch of 5G mobile devices that support the latest 5G NR specifications set by 3GPP, the global standards organization. This includes the 3GPP Release 16 specifications, which device manufacturers use to support advanced 5G features.

“Keysight is delighted to strengthen its collaboration with KT, a company that currently supports more than five million 5G subscribers in Korea,” said Cao Peng, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s Wireless Testing Group. “Keysight’s early availability of 3GPP Rel-16 compliance testing and verification capabilities enables KT to deliver advanced wireless connectivity services to the benefit of consumers and businesses.

KT was the first Korean telecom provider to launch 5G service in standalone mode (SA), which reduces latency and power consumption for smartphone users. Keysight’s protocol R&D toolset uses a flexible user interface that allows KT to create and run test cases that verify 5G NR signaling protocols. The toolset also allows KT to debug errors and fully analyze results in the Frequency Range 1 (FR1) spectrum for 5G NR Non-Standalone (NSA) and SA modes.

Keysight’s 5G device testing solutions meet a wide range of design, compliance, and performance validation requirements of a growing global 5G ecosystem comprised of more than 180 mobile operators with commercial 5G networks and near one hundred and seventy 5G device vendors. KT and other leading 5G mobile operators in Korea, China, Japan and the United States rely on 5G protocol, radio frequency (RF) and radio resource management (RRM) test tools of Keysight to verify 5G products against industry standards and operator acceptance plans prior to market introduction.
