OpenTAP Highlighted by Keysight
OpenTAP was prominently featured in the OpenTAP booth (Hall 9, stand F57). Keysight's message was "Test private networks of the future, today!" with a mission to introduce Keysight (and OpenTAP) to the ecosystem as a key player in next-generation industrial networks and automation, highlighting extended test solution portfolio that includes radio planning and site acceptance, and monitoring and assuring private 5G networks, with a foundation build on OpenTAP.
The Keysight stand, visible above behind German Chancellor Scholz, who spoke at the event, featured two "demo zones" with use cases that build on OpenTAP:
Demo Zone 1: AI Smart Manufacturing
Ensure Industry 4.0 5G SLAs
Validate URLLC and TSN
Implement Low Latency Edge Cloud
Demo Zone 2: 5G for Industrial Automation
Test with Effortless Automation
Validate Throughput & Latency
Prove Cobot & AMR performance
It was great to showcase joint demos with industrial partners such as AI-Link and Universal Robotics to demonstrate Keysight's 5G private networks test solutions and their applications.
