Toolset Accelerates Global Certification of 5G Devices

Keysight Technologies announces that its 5G Conformance Toolset now supports the greatest number of validated Global Certification Forum (GCF) and PTCRB protocol, as well as radio frequency (RF) conformance test cases, for both 5G new radio (NR) non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) mode.

Protocol and RF conformance tests are a key enabler for chipset, device manufacturers, mobile operators, and test labs to validate the performance of new 5G designs.

 

SENSORS EXPO & CONFERENCE

Sensors 2019 Hits Silicon Valley June 25-27!

Join 7,000+ engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, 10 new and updated tracks, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it. See thousands of the newest technologies in action, learn about the latest applications, and develop invaluable partnerships at the only event dedicated to sensors, connectivity, and systems.

The company’s 5G Conformance Toolset was used to submit 5G NR non-standalone RF test cases – targeting spurious emission testing in the sub-6Ghz frequency range (FR1) – to GCF. Early access to a comprehensive set of test cases on a common platform enables the mobile ecosystem to validate the performance of new 5G designs.

 

Keysight's 5G Conformance Toolset forms part of Keysight's suite of 5G network emulation solutions that leverages the company's UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform to address device development workflow from early design to acceptance and manufacturing. The compact tools support the device certification process and scale to facilitate mobile device verification, as well as certification across RF, radio resource management (RRM) and protocol. Mobile operators and their ecosystems use Keysight's 5G network emulation solutions to validate new devices across sub-6GHz and mmWave frequency bands.

 

In the past three months, Keysight has obtained initial GCF approval for validated 5G NR NSA test cases and has enabled the activation of GCF certification for 5G NR standalone devices. Keysight's 5G Conformance Toolset offers the widest range of GCF 5G RF NR radio frequency SA test cases and frequency band combinations and is currently the only solution that supports validated 5G NR protocol test cases for standalone mode. Compared to competitors, Keysight offers the leading number of carrier acceptance 5G NR RF and protocol test cases as mandated by a major U.S. mobile operator.
