Market-ready platform enables mobile operators and chipset manufacturers to drive forward 5G use cases in millimeter wave and sub-6 GHz spectrum
HILLSBORO, OR– September 13, 2018 – Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a global leader of open telecom solutions, and NI (Nasdaq: NATI), the provider of a software-defined platform that helps accelerate the development and performance of automated test and automated measurement systems, today announced the joint delivery of an end-to-end 5G platform that enables mobile operators and chipset manufacturers to validate and begin monetizing their 5G solutions now. The solution integrates Radisys’ 5G protocol stack with NI’s test equipment with 5G PHY and New Radio (NR) that connects over the air in millimeter and sub-6 GHz radio bands. It allows customers to simulate any 5G environment to test their products and accelerate their time to market.
- 5G with its high performance and ultra-low latency capabilities is enabling innovative new use cases for multiple industries and applications. While mobile operators, chip manufacturers, and test & measurement vendors are developing 5G products, they need to be able to test their solutions in real-world scenarios to ensure the performance of their networks and devices.
- Radisys’ first-to-market 5G Software Suite protocol stack supports L2 and above, delivering a complete 5G source code that can be leveraged by 5G User Equipment, Next Generation NodeB (gNB) radio/base stations, and the 5G Core Network. NI’s software-defined radios and modular hardware provide the wireless connection in millimeter wave and sub-6 GHz spectrum. The integrated solution can be used to simulate any 5G environment from automotive to handheld devices.
- The integrated solution is currently being used by a tier-one North American wireless company to develop a 5G NR NSA UE.
“Mobile operators, OEMs, and chipset vendors are eager to move forward with 5G and begin monetizing their solutions today, but they need to be able to validate their solutions before commercial deployments,” said Neeraj Patel, vice-president and general manager, Software and Services, Radisys. “We’ve partnered with NI to be able to offer a market-ready platform to drive 5G use cases forward, and allow our customers to do all of the testing they need, in any scenario they need. Radisys’ complete 5G source code is the engine that will drive these use cases, while NI’s test equipment allows our customers to connect over the air in millimeter wave and sub-6GHz frequencies to support both fixed wireless access and mobile access use cases.”
“Radisys is the leader in delivering complete 5G NR software stacks that can be used for multiple applications,” said James, Kimery, director of wireless research, NI. “By collaborating with Radisys to build and market this end-to-end 5G platform, we will be able to grow our customer base globally and usher in the 5G era.”
