Keysight Enables First O-RAN End-to-End System Integration Badge for Pegatron through Auray OTIC
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that delivers advanced design and validation solutions to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced its 5G Open Radio Access Network (O-RAN) Solutions portfolio enabled Pegatron to obtain the first O-RAN ALLIANCE End-to-End (E2E) System Integration Badge from Auray Open Testing and Integration Center (OTIC) and Security Lab.
Earned through the O-RAN ALLIANCE’s Certification and Badging program, Pegatron’s E2E Systems Integration Badge confirms its O-RAN Central Unit (O-CU) and O-RAN Distributed Unit (O-DU) have successfully passed an E2E integration assessment of groups of devices under test (DUT) using O-RAN E2E test specifications. O-RAN badges are issued by OTICs such as Auray, which provide a collaborative, open, and impartial working environment to ensure the consistency and quality of testing of O-RAN products and solutions.
The assessment was conducted using Keysight’s P8800S UE Emulation RAN (UeSIM) and P8850S Core Simulation RAN (CoreSIM) solutions, which provided wrap-around testing on Pegatron’s O-CU/O-DU to assess functionality, performance, service, and security using specifications defined by O-RAN ALLIANCE’s Test and Integration Focus Group (TIFG). These Keysight solutions enabled the assessment by emulating real network traffic over the Pegatron O-CU/O-DU. In addition, the solutions can be used to obtain E2E badging for O-RAN base stations, which can provide network operators and system integrators greater confidence in O-RAN architectures.
Dr. James Shue, Chief Technology Officer at Pegatron Corporation, said: “The Pegatron O-CU/O-DU has been awarded the world’s first O-RAN E2E system integration badge, thanks to Keysight’s mature O-CU/O-DU testing solution and professional technical support.”
Daniel Chang, Chairman at Auray, said: “The Auray OTIC and Security lab is one of the first labs to issue O-RAN ALLIANCE certificate of conformance in 2022. Thanks to Keysight’s solutions, Auray is again able log another significant milestone for Open RAN industry by issuing the first O-RAN E2E system integration badge to Pegatron.”
Peng Cao, Vice President and General Manager for Keysight’s Wireless Test Group, said: “By using our UeSIM and CoreSIM solutions, we have enabled Pegatron to obtain the first O-RAN end-to-end system integration badge through close collaboration with Auray OTIC. This worldwide milestone promises to kickstart the qualification process for 5G O-RAN E2E base stations.”
