Keysight Technologies, Inc., a leading technology company that delivers advanced design and validation solutions to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that OPPO, a leading mobile device manufacturer, has selected the company’s 5G mobile device test solutions to upgrade its 5G communications lab in Shenzhen, China. oppo 5g lab
OPPO’s upgraded 5G communication lab includes three major modules: a radio frequency (RF) lab, a protocol lab and a network simulation lab. These labs are designed to explore the mobile devices’ fundamental communication capabilities and ultimate performances under different communication protocols and base stations. Keysight 5G protocol R&D testing application and channel emulation solutions were selected to verify the performance of OPPO’s 5G new radio (NR) design to help maintain their global leading position in advanced technology.
“OPPO is fully aware that reliability testing is mandatory before launching competitive commercial products into the market,” said Cao Peng, vice president and general manager for Keysight’s wireless test group. “Keysight 5G test solutions enable OPPO’s engineers to efficiently conduct power consumption testing, regression testing and new feature interoperability testing, as well as emulate crowded streets and high-speed train scenarios which helps OPPO implement their 5G strategy.”
Chipset manufacturers and their mobile device ecosystem use Keysight’s 5G NR platform, which complies with the latest 3GPP 5G NR standards, to accelerate development, verification and operator acceptance. Keysight 5G solutions cover both Sub6GHz and millimeter wave frequencies for conducting and over-the-air (OTA) testing. Common development tools allow customers to share design insights at all stages of the product life cycle to speed the introduction of 5G NR products.
“The upgraded OPPO Communication Lab is a new milestone in our 5G strategy, and represents a new level of close cooperation with leading global technology companies,” said Shu Can, vice president and general manager of Product Strategic Planning and Cooperation Center at OPPO. “To support the rapid evolution of global 5G technology, we are pleased to join hands with Ericsson and Keysight to leverage our experience in 5G standards, products and applications, and enhance the 5G ecosystem worldwide”. oppo 5g lab
Following the international competition, Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) has been selected to build OPPO’s new headquarters in Shenzhen, China.
OPPO launched their first phone in 2008, growing to become China’s leading smartphone manufacturer and the fifth largest worldwide with over 40,000 employees in more than 40 countries. Pioneering new communication technology in smart devices and internet services, OPPO has established six research institutes, four research & development centres, and a global design studio.
Accommodating this growth, OPPO’s new headquarters will continue their commitment to connectivity through design.
