Keysight partners with Movandi to develope testing for 5G


Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Keysight Technologies has formed a partnership with millimetre-wave start-up Movandi for the testing of its RF front-end which incorporates antenna and beamforming for 5G small cell and basestations.

California-based Movandi will use Keysight’s testing and measurement tools in the development, qualification, and manufacturing of mmWave RF and antenna technologies.

Movandi will also provide antenna arrays to Keysight to support the optimisation and streamlining the process of performing over the air (OTA) testing.

Reza Rofougaran, CTO and co-CEO, Movandi, writes:

“Solving the testing challenges will help uncover the huge potential offered by much greater bandwidth, spatial reuse, and frequency reuse.”

Implementing beamforming has potential to support higher data rates, but at millimetre-wave frequencies it introduces new challenges to effectively evaluate antenna performance and to analyse the magnitude and phase shift between antenna channels.

5G and mmWave will require a major change in cellular network design due to its higher frequencies, ill-behaved propagation, beamforming, and over-the-air testing.

Kailash Narayanan, general manager, wireless device group, Keysight Technologies, writes:

“Tightly coupled integration of the elements from baseband to RF to air interface present new opportunities that require our testing solutions to deliver the validation needed for Movandi’s next-gen technologies.”
