Keysight joins Google Cloud Partner initiative

Keysight Technologies has joined Google Cloud's partner initiative that looks to support the deployment of 5G services at the network edge.

With a growing number of mobile operators now leveraging cloud and edge computing to bring high-speed, low-latency and secure connectivity to the network edge, Keysight has joined Google Cloud's partner initiative, which is looking to drive a cloud-centric 5G ecosystem, to help connect a software-driven infrastructure from the edge of the radio access network (RAN) to the core.

"As a Google Cloud partner, Keysight will support service providers transitioning to cloud and edge computing, which are needed for delivering advanced applications and use cases such as streaming media, cloud gaming, connected vehicles, private wireless networks and immersive experiences," explained Scott Bryden, VP of Keysight's operator industry solutions group. "Keysight's solutions across wireless and wireline technologies enable hyperscalers and mobile operators to create unified, heterogenous networks that support a wide range of use cases, requirements and applications."

Telecom providers are looking to migrate network and application operations to cloud-native, container-based solutions. 5G deployments in standalone (SA) mode using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware with open standard interfaces are helping to accelerate virtualisation RAN architectures and network slicing technology which is unlocking innovation at the network edge with real-time data processing that is closer to where data is collected and consumed.

"Low latency access to cloud capabilities and applications is increasingly important for businesses operating at the network edge," said Tanuj Raja, Global Head, Strategic Partnerships at Google Cloud.

Keysight offers a wide range of solutions for validating early designs, system interoperability and performance, network and end-point security, as well as compliance to 3GPP and O-RAN specifications.

The company's end-to-end solution portfolio is built on common hardware and software platforms which will enable a cloud-centric ecosystem to accelerate deployment of multi-access edge computing (MEC), network function virtualisation (NFV) and artificial intelligence (AI) technology and help mobile operators to dliver greater innovation in terms of wireless connectivity services at the edge of the network.
