Industry Panels

  • December 5 | 14:30-15:30 | Americas II
    The Road Less Traveled By: Pathways To Accelerate 6g Candidate Technology Areas Using Public-private Partnership Testbeds – Roger Nichols (Panelist)

    The panel will provide an overview of globally identified 6G candidate technology areas and suggest a roadmap for leveraging public-private partnership research testbeds to influence the 6G vision and accelerate R&D.
  • December 5 | 8:00-9:30 | Americas II
    The Role of Digital Twins In 6G – Dylan McGrath (Moderator) and Rajive Bagrodia (Panelist)

    As new network topologies are explored and the complexity of the network increases, network tools can harness the capabilities of Digital Twins to evaluate wired and wireless network functions, design resiliency, and validate network design.

Demonstrations at the Keysight booth will include:

  • Non-Terrestrial Networks Testbed
    This non-terrestrial networks testbed features a low earth orbit (LEO) satellite 5G network channel emulator with delays and dopplers shifts, up to 48 kHz, pre-compensated for both user equipment and gNodeB.
  • Joint Communications and Sensing
    A setup for evaluating the combination of sensing with communications at 142 GHz. Demo uses a combination of Radio on Glass modules developed by Nokia Bell Labs and test equipment from Keysight and Virginia Diodes.
  • EXata Network Modeling
    EXata Network Modeling allows the creation of a network digital twin that replicates the behavior of a network for real-time network simulation and emulation.
  • FieldFox Handheld RF Analyzer
    FieldFox is the industry’s first 50 GHz handheld microwave analyzer, which can function as a vector network analyzer (VNA), spectrum analyzer (SA), or an all-in-one combination analyzer.
  • UXM 5G Wireless Test Solution
    The UXM 5G wireless test solution is a highly-integrated signaling test platform with multiformat stack support, rich processing power, and abundant RF resources. Supporting the latest 3GPP Release 15 and beyond, the UXM 5G wireless test solution enables you to establish a 5G call with a device under test (DUT) in different 5G New Radio (NR) deployment modes; non-stand-alone (NSA), stand-alone (SA), and frequency bands FR1 and FR2.
  • Nemo Handy
    Ensure network quality and end-user satisfaction of wireless networks with professional in-building measurements using Nemo Handy. This Android application measures wireless diagnostics information of air interface and mobile application quality-of-service (QoS) and quality-of-experience (QoE).
