Keysight Technologies announced that Chinese-based smartphone manufacturer OPPO has selected the company’s 5G New Radio (NR) network emulation solutions for protocol and radio frequency (RF) performance validation in sub-6GHz frequency bands (FR1). OPPO plans to release its first 5G mobile device next year.
The announcement stated that OPPO on November 29 used Keysight’s UXM-based 5G NR network emulation solutions helped OPPO to successfully establish a 5G video call, thereby completing one of the world’s first 5G signaling and data connections based on OPPO’s commercially available mobile phone.

Keysight noted that it’s 5G NR network emulation solutions are compliant to the latest 3GPP 5G NR standards, to speed development and validation of new 5G designs.
These solutions support both sub-6GHz and mmWave frequencies for conducted and over-the-air (OTA) testing.
Common development tools help users to share design insights gained across each stage of the device lifecycle. As a result, chipset and device manufacturers can accelerate delivery of new 5G NR products to market.
“We are proud of our 5G R&D progress, as well as the recent 5G public demonstrations, and are delighted to be working with Keysight as the leading 5G test solutions to help fast-track the release our first commercial 5G phone,” said Levin Liu, global vice president and head of the OPPO Research Institute at Shenzhen, China. “Keysight’s close relationships with our 5G chipset and operator partners affords the company valuable 5G insights and expertise, which makes them the ideal partner for OPPO.”
“Keysight is pleased to help OPPO realize their ambitious commercial launch plans”, said Peng Cao, senior director of the Commercial Communications group at Keysight Technologies. “5G device manufacturers, like OPPO, benefit from using the same tools that leading chipset manufacturers use to validate new 5G NR products, leading to faster time to market.”
