The first bundles available are:
- PathWave Vector Signal Analysis (89600 VSA)

Each bundle is targeted to different industry applications. For example, VSA bundles are available in four configurations: Custom Modulation, Pulse Analysis, Wireless Connectivity, and Cellular Communications. Each bundle contains the software modules specific to the application.
"Building on the success of our multi-channel transactional ecosystem, Keysight's new software eCommerce offerings make it easy and fast for customers to do business with Keysight while expanding access to our software portfolio," said Nilesh Kamdar, software business and operations director at Keysight. "The new software bundles are priced to deliver significant up-front cost savings and continuous value to support a customer's digital transformation initiatives. This allows customers to shift software budgets from CapEx to OpEx to improve cash flow, gain the flexibility to scale up or down as their business needs change and capture the highest value by keeping their software current and supported."
