3D visualized 5G coverage map helps in finding a perfect spot for your performance tests

Keysight Technologies5GTN partner and 6G Flagship co-creator – has published a YouTube video of testing their 3D Visualizer tool in 5G Test Network (5GTN) in Oulu, Finland.

In 5GTN you can perform live network real time tests for 5G new radio (NR). For example,  the different key performance indicators (KPIs) can be measured and visualized in 3D. The measurements include NR beam widths and coverage around the university campus. In the video, measurements have been done with Keysight 3D Visualizer tool providing a 3D map to show 5GNR beams and KPIs.

5G Test Network Enables Flexible Service Solutions for Older People’s Independent Living

Sensors installed in the spacious sunlit home of Erkki Alatalo (91) transmit data on his morning activities. Calmness prevails, as the senior resident of Caritas-home is enjoying his breakfast while surmounting a Sudoku challenge. Careful analysis of the sensor data utilises artificial intelligence producing a model of his daily routines, which is subsequently used for organising individualised nursing and support services by Caritas. As a joint effort, Caritas, three technology companies – Haltian, Indalgo and Kaltiot – and 5G Test Network experts at the University of Oulu and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland contribute to security and comfort for longer living at home in a mature age.

Extreme underground measurements on 5GTN with Keysight Technologies and Nokia

The mysterious underground maintenance tunnels of the University of Oulu gained unprecedented value as the expert team of the open 5G Test Network (5GTN) at the Centre for Wireless Communications invited specialists from Keysight Technologies – a leading innovator in electronic test and measurement equipment – and Nokia to perform underground measurements in the vast tunnel network. Surrounded by thick concrete structures, the nearly endless narrow alleys offer an attractive angle for measuring the capacity of the campus wide wireless network and specifically its IoT components.
