Keysight (KEYS) to Boost Portfolio With Innovative Launches

Keysight Technologies, Inc. KEYS aims to augment its portfolio with some innovative product launches. The company will showcase these top-notch wireless innovations at Mobile World Congress 2024 in Barcelona, Spain, emphasizing non-terrestrial networks (NTN), extreme connectivity and 6G technology research to create a more connected future.

Mobile World Congress serves as a global platform for mobile operators, device manufacturers, technology providers and industry professionals to display innovations, discuss industry trends and explore business opportunities.

The event is organized by the GSM Association, a trade body representing the interests of mobile network operators worldwide and features a series of conferences with prominent industry experts and thought leaders discussing key topics, trends and challenges in the mobile and telecommunications sectors. Keysight is likely to take full advantage of this global platform in order to expand its portfolio worldwide.

The company aims to take wireless communications to the next level by harnessing the power of satellite technology with its NTN solutions. It has collaborated with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. to establish an end-to-end 5G NTN connection. Based on the successful demonstration of call signaling and data transfer using orbit trajectory emulation, the companies aim to accelerate 5G NTN technology to provide affordable broadband connectivity in remote areas.

Keysight UXM Wireless Connectivity Test Platform is an advanced test and measurement solution designed for the validation and testing of wireless connectivity technologies. It is a part of electronic test and measurement equipment. Supporting both Wi-Fi 7 and 5G, the UXM platform is capable of testing multiple wireless communication formats, including cellular technologies (2G, 3G, 4G LTE, and 5G NR), as well as non-cellular wireless standards (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth). This is likely to offer extreme connectivity to next-generation networks, providing top-notch performance and capabilities.

The event will also showcase Keysight's Eggplant automation, which refers to the Eggplant Digital Automation Intelligence platform. Eggplant, prior to its acquisition by Keysight, was known for its software solutions focused on test automation, user experience testing, and performance testing. It integrates artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities to enhance test automation of new Wi-Fi and 5G XR devices.

With the increasing demand for Open RAN networks, Keysight is set to display maximization of network performance with AI/ML, curbing energy consumption, securing the network and increasing its resilience. In addition, Keysight will showcase its new AI-assisted radio channel emulation solutions that speed up the development and evaluation of complex 6G technologies.

Keysight is likely to make a mark in the digital landscape with a focus on extending connectivity, pushing the limits of performance and advancing research on 6G technology.  This, in turn, is likely to strengthen its position in the market.

It has lost 13.5% over the past year compared with the industry’s decline of 7.6%.
