Keysight Technologies, Inc., a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced a collaboration with VIOMI, a leading provider of IoT-enabled smart home products, to accelerate the market introduction of innovative 5G-enabled IoT devices for consumers in China.
VIOMI, pioneer of IoT@Home, selected Keysight's 5G solutions to validate the radio frequency (RF) performance of the company's IoT devices for home applications. The deployment of massive IoT networks is expected to create a $1.2B global opportunity by 2024 according to a report published by Research and Markets earlier this year. Keysight's 5G device test solutions are well-positioned to address the 5G IoT endpoint installed base market, which Gartner predicts will more than triple between 2020 and 2023.
Keysight's comprehensive portfolio of test solutions enables IoT providers, such as VIOMI, to ensure their products perform as expected on a wide range of cellular networks, including 5G, Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) and Category M1. VIOMI uses Qualcomm's latest platform, the Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 8cx system-on-a-chip (SoC) and X55 5G modem to deliver products that will help redefine China's future homes. By using Keysight's 5G emulation solution suite, which is the same as adopted by Qualcomm and its ecosystem of device makers, VIOMI can reliably bring to market products that deliver a seamless user experience.
