8cx system-on-a-chip and X55 modem platform for Windows 10

SANTA ROSA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#5G–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 that the company’s
5G network emulation solutions were used by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.,
a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, to successfully demonstrate the
industry’s first 5G laptop with integrated modem at Computex, a leading
global ICT and IoT show in Taipei, Taiwan last month.

The demonstration showcased always connected workflows, all-day battery
life and Windows 10 support using Qualcomm’s latest platform, the
Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 8cx system-on-a-chip (SoC) and X55
5G modem
, as well as Keysight’s 5G network emulation solutions. This
demonstration displayed high-speed, low-latency connectivity made
possible by 5G new radio (NR), offering transformative PC user
experiences for both consumers and the enterprise with downstream speeds
of up to 7Gbps.

“We are pleased to again support Qualcomm, and their connected ecosystem
of wireless device makers, to deliver 5G applications for consumers and
vertical industries,” stated Lucas Hansen, senior director of Keysight’s
wireless test group. “Keysight’s 5G solutions are rapidly becoming the
industry standard across the mobile ecosystem, enabling mobile and
device manufacturers to validate multi-mode designs and offer these
exciting new products to consumers.”

Keysight’s 5G network emulation solutions – based on Keysight’s
UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform
– enable device makers to validate 5G
NR multi-mode designs across protocol, radio frequency (RF) and radio
resource management (RRM) in both non-standalone (NSA) and stand-alone
(SA) modes. Keysight’s end-to-end
5G solutions
provide the flexibility needed to rapidly validate
multi-mode designs in nearly any form factor, accelerating their ability
to address global requirements in sub-6GHz (FR1) and mmWave (FR2)

Earlier this year, the two companies announced they had established the mobile
industry’s first announced 5G NR data call in the Frequency Division
Duplexing (FDD)
mode, as well as demonstrated an industrial
internet of things (IIoT) application
at CES 2019.
