Keysight Technologies announced the submission of industry’s first 5G TTCN-31 conformance test case to 3GPP RAN52 for 5G new radio (NR) device certification on December 8, 2018.
The 5G NR Non-Standalone (NSA) test case submission was made using Keysight’s 5G Protocol Conformance Toolset, part of Keysight’s 5G Network Emulation Solution portfolio. It is the first 3GPP conformance test case at mmWave frequencies (28 GHz) using an over-the-air (OTA) test methodology. Protocol conformance tests are a key enabler for chipset and device manufacturers to validate the performance of new 5G designs.
“Keysight has yet again achieved a key milestone in helping the industry speed the commercialization of 5G devices,” said Kailash Narayanan, Vice President of Keysight’s wireless test group. “Our close collaborations with market makers across the mobile ecosystem has enabled Keysight to deliver leading 5G solutions for full radio frequency and protocol conformance test capability.”
In addition, Keysight had also announced that the company’s 5G RF Conformance Toolset was first to gain PTCRB approval for 5G New Radio (NR) device certification earlier this month. Keysight’s suite of 5G Network Emulation Solutions leverages Keysight’s UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform to address the device development workflow from early design, to acceptance and manufacturing.
“We are delighted that Keysight has taken this key step towards verifying 5G protocol test specifications, enabling the mobile industry to accelerate commercialization of 5G technology,” said Jacob John, chair of 3GPP RAN5.
