SANTA ROSA, California – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company providing advanced design and validation solutions to accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that Kyocera Corporation has selected Keysight Open RAN Studio software for the validation of radio units (O-RU) in accordance with the specifications of the O-RAN alliance and accelerate the development of O-RUs.
Keysight is committed to meeting the needs of an O-RU market that is ABI research is forecast to be worth more than $ 47 billion by 2026. Kyocera uses Keysight’s Open RAN Studio software, which emulates an O-RAN-compliant distributed unit, and Keysightsight UXA signal analyzer and VXG signal generatorto make radio frequency (RF) measurements over both optical and Ethernet connections.
“We are excited to offer Kyocera solutions that verify interoperability and compliance with the latest O-RAN specifications,” said Giampaolo Tardioli, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s Network Access Group. “We strive to support Kyocera in the development of network elements that function coherently as part of a heterogeneous open radio access network.”
Keysight’s Open RAN Studio software combines visibility, validation, and performance testing capabilities over radio frequency (RF) and protocol measurement ranges. It is part of the company’s integrated solution portfolio of solutions that take test requirements from the Edge of the RAN to the 5G core (5GC). End-to-end system testing helps simplify complex, multi-vendor network environments designed to provide a wide range of connectivity service offerings.
As the publisher of the O-RAN Fronthaul Compliance Test Specifications, Keysight is one of 230 organizations contributing to the development of the O-RAN standards. This expertise helps Kyocera and other providers to reliably check the performance of network elements.
A growing ecosystem of O-RUs, Distributed Units (O-DUs), and Central Units (CUs) rely on Keysight’s integrated hardware and software solutions to validate performance, establish interoperability between network elements, and maintain the latest O. – Ensure RAN specifications. Keysight’s wireless and wired expertise across the entire protocol stack, from the physical layer to the application layer, supports efficient testing of network elements in both the RAN and 5GC. This helps cellular operators and service providers overcome system integration challenges, resulting in resilient cloud-native networks.
