Among the mobile broadband requirements of 5G are new technologies yielding over-the-air data rates of as much as 10 Gbps. To achieve these requirements, new air-interfaces are being developed to operate in frequency bands from 10-100 GHz. The 5G channel sounding Reference Solution combines metrology grade hardware, software and expertise to allow customers to quickly characterize the channel behavior in these frequency bands and enable researchers to develop the necessary channel models for designing and validating air-interface alternatives.

Researchers can produce accurate absolute delay measurements with system-wide calibrations, precise timing, and synchronization. User will also save time and disk space by using the multi-channel, real-time data processing, and correlation of the channel impulse response data (CIR) offered by the M9703A high speed digitizer FPGAs. Engineers can use Keysight’s SystemVue system level design and simulation software platform to calculate channel parameter estimations and perform link-level simulations and validation of new 5G designs with the imported channel models.

Keysight’s 5G channel sounding Reference Solution also enables:

  • Tx/Rx up to 44 GHz with 1 GHz bandwidth for 4 or 8 MIMO channels
  • Capture of multiple phase coherent channels for real-time CIR data processing in FPGAs
  • System-level calibration and synchronization to achieve precise timing and accurate measurements
  • Flexibility and scalability to add more channels and tests as 5G standards evolve
  • Customization of waveforms, models for channel parameter extractions and system integration
