NI ANNOUNCES TEST UE OFFERING FOR 5G LAB AND FIELD TRIALS

April 24, 2019

Release 15 compliant 5G New Radio non-standalone system can help customers deliver 5G commercial wireless to market faster

NI (Nasdaq: NATI), the provider of platform-based systems that help engineers and scientists solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges, today announced a real-time 5G New Radio (NR) test UE offering. The NI Test UE offering features a fully 3GPP Release 15 non-standalone (NSA) compliant system capable of emulating the full operation of end-user devices or user equipment (UE).

With the 5G commercial rollout this year, engineers must validate the design and functionality of 5G NR infrastructure equipment before productization and release. Based on the rugged PXI Express platform, the NI Test UE offering helps customers test prototypes in the lab and in the field to evaluate them on service operators’ networks. In addition, customers can perform InterOperability Device Testing (IoDT), which is a critical part of the commercialization process to ensure that network equipment works with UE from any vendor and vice versa. The NI Test UE offering can also be used to perform benchmark testing to evaluate the full capabilities of commercial and precommercial micro-cell, small-cell and macro-cell 5G NR gNodeB equipment.
