TCL Communication has selected Keysight Technologies’ 5G network emulation solutions to validate its 5G new radio (NR) designs.

TCL Communication, with a multi-brand portfolio that includes TCL, Alcatel and BlackBerry branded products, chose Keysight to accelerate the development and testing of 5G NR devices including 5G smartphones, 5G USB data terminals, 5G+8K QLED televisions, and 5G consumer premise equipment (CPEs).

Keysight’s 5G network emulation solutions enable TCL Communication to validate radio frequency (RF) performance, in accordance with the 3GPP 5G NR standards, for global market introductions.

TCL Communication leverages the same Keysight test tools and test cases used by leading chipset manufacturers – including MediaTek – to speed validation of the RF performance of new 5G NR devices and achieve consistent results. Earlier this year, MediaTek used Keysight’s 5G network emulation solutions, together with its Helio M70 modem with integrated baseband, to successfully establish a 5G NR data call, reaching the theoretical maximal throughput rate over 100MHz NR bandwidth, for both non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) modes.

Charles ZOU, VP of Global R&D Center, TCL Communication
Their contributions to the 5G NR standards influenced our decision to select Keysight, supporting an accelerated commercialization of 5G technology around the globe.

Kailash Narayanan, VP and GM of Keysight's Wireless Test Group
TCL Communication’s selection of Keysight reinforces the importance of collaborating with suppliers of solutions used across a connected mobile ecosystem of wireless device makers, chipset vendors and mobile operators.
