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.
