Keysight Technologies announced that the company’s 5G network emulation solutions deliver a leading number of 5G new radio (NR) protocol conformance test cases validated by the Global Certification Forum (GCF) and PTCRB.
The company said that its leadership at validated protocol test cases enables the mobile ecosystem to accelerate 5G NR device certification in compliance with specifications set by 3GPP. This early access to a comprehensive set of test cases has allowed device makers to speed validation of a wide range of scenarios.
Keysight’s 5G Protocol Conformance Toolset offers a leading number of GCF validated 5G NR protocol test cases in non-standalone (NSA) mode across both frequency range 1 (FR1) and FR2. The toolset uniquely offers protocol test cases for standalone (SA) mode as validated by both GCF and PTCRB. The standalone mode leverages a new 3GPP core network architecture – the 5G Core (5GC) – to unlock the full potential of 5G NR, resulting in new use cases requiring ultra-low latency and higher capacity.
“We’re pleased to play a key role in speeding the deployment of a wide range of 5G use cases addressing enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) and ultra-low latency requirements for both consumer and vertical industry applications,” said Kailash Narayanan, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s wireless test group.
