KEYSIGHT TECHNOLOGIES Nemo Handy Handheld Measurement software uses Android-based commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) smartphones for verification of 5G new radio (NR) quality-of-service (QoS) and quality-of-experience (QoE) in the field. Access to commercial, non-rooted devices speeds testing across different end-user scenarios, network technology implementations and propagation environments. New version allows mobile operators and vendors to quickly verify QoE as experienced by users of different 5G devices as soon as these become commercially available on a market where delivery of superior 5G services is key to securing early revenue opportunities. In addition, Nemo Diagnostics Module, an external hardware unit, enables users of the new Nemo Handy software to easily access non-rooted, 5G COTS smartphones. Product provides plug and play set-up, without the need for special firmware, when switching from one 5G COTS smartphone to another to initiate a new series of measurements. Product delivers extended measurement functionality, cost-effective voice quality testing across different 5G devices and support for up to two devices.
