Keysight, NXP Collaborate to Advance Development of 5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) Solutions


Keysight Technologies, Inc. is collaborating with NXP® Semiconductors to advance the development of 5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) solutions. The multi-generation collaboration includes 5G market deployment of non-standalone (NSA) mode for the initial phase, as well as stand-alone (SA) for the future.

NXP, a leading technology provider of solutions critical in communications infrastructure, internet of things (IoT) and industrial applications, selected Keysight's 5G device test solutions to verify consumer premises equipment (CPE) used to deliver FWA services. FWA addresses a growing global demand for high-speed internet connectivity with reduced latency and power consumption inside residential commercial properties.

NXP offers a 5G reference system comprised of a combination of NXP and third-party hardware components, integrated with complete software stacks for 3GPP compliant deployment. The company is using Keysight's 5G test solutions to advance chipset development for the FWA market. These include the following:

  • Protocol R&D Toolset to verify the software stack in CPE chipsets
  • Protocol Conformance toolset to verify compliance to 3GPP 5G specifications
  • Radio Frequency (RF) Automation Toolset to verify the transmitter and receiver performance
  • Protocol Carrier Acceptance Toolset to pre-validate test cases defined by US carriers

These Keysight solutions leverage Keysight's UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform, a highly integrated network emulator with comprehensive support across multiple radio access technologies (RATs) and 3GPP-defined frequency bands. The signaling test platform can be seamlessly combined with Keysight's chamber solutions for over-the-air (OTA) testing in mmWave spectrum, also referred to as frequency range 2 (FR2).
