Market-ready platform enables mobile operators and chipset
manufacturers to drive forward 5G use cases in millimeter wave and sub-6
GHz spectrum

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.

Highlights

  • 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."
