Keysight Technologies, Telia Collaborate to Accelerate Commercial 5G NR Deployment

April 9, 2019

SANTA ROSA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 9, 2019--Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced a collaboration with Telia Finland to accelerate commercial 5G New Radio (NR) deployments.

5G networks will revolutionize industrial internet of things (IIoT) to support reduced latencies, higher reliability and a greater number of connected devices. Telia, a leading mobile operator, selected Keysight’s Nemo 5G NR field measurement solution to verify 5G NR coverage and quality of service in their commercial industrial 5G NR network.

Telia deployed the network using base station equipment from Nokia at a mill located in Finland to improve the site’s operational effectiveness. The real-time information delivered by Keysight’s Nemo field measurement solution enables Telia to further develop and optimize the 5G NR network deployed at the mill. High quality coverage is important to secure the use of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) applications that the mill relies on to operate efficiently and reliably.

“Superior quality of service is vital to ensure successful implementation of business critical IoT applications,” said Janne Koistinen, 5G Program Director Telia Finland. “A trusted partner like Keysight is instrumental in the early phase of the roll-out when our customers expect the network performance to be just right.”

Keysight’s Nemo 5G NR field measurement solution is comprised of the company’s Nemo Outdoor drive test solution, a scalable field test solution for measuring radio interface parameters in wireless networks, and Nemo Analyze, a data post-processing software that enables users to analyze and visualize field measurement results. Major mobile operators around the world use Nemo Outdoor to collect, analyze, and visualize data, as well as to generate statistical reports, easily shared across the organization.

“We’re excited to extend our collaboration with Telia, initiated more than 20 years ago, to help secure quality of service in commercial industrial 5G NR networks that support IIoT applications,” said Kai Ojala, head of Nemo measurement solutions at Keysight Technologies. “Leading mobile operators around the world use Keysight’s drive test, benchmarking and in-building measurement tools to deploy wireless technologies and capitalize on early vertical market revenue opportunities.”
