Keysight Enabling Major U.S. Mobile Operators to Accelerate 5G
February 10, 2020
Keysight Technologies announced that early engagements with all four U.S. mobile operators has resulted in more than 600 validated test cases.
Keysight Technologies announced that early engagements with all four U.S. mobile operators has resulted in more than 600 validated test cases. The test cases are important to the operators' respective 5G device acceptance plans, using Keysight's 5G network emulation solution suite.
As 348 mobile operators begin deploying their 5G services, Keysight is well-positioned to support a connected ecosystem with solutions for device performance validation in any 3GPP-specified frequency band, according to the company.
Keysight's 5G network emulation solutions provide early access to a comprehensive range of test cases for protocol, radio frequency (RF), radio resource management (RRM) conformance and carrier acceptance validation. Following the most recent conformance agreement (CAG) meeting organized by the Global Certification Forum, the solution suite offers a leading number of GCF-validated protocol test cases for both non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) mode, for both TDD and FDD deployments and across any 3GPP-specified frequency band. It continues to offer a leading number of RF validated test cases in frequency range 2 (FR2) for NSA mode. Early access to a comprehensive set of GCF-validated test cases accelerates device certification according to the 3GPP 5G new radio (NR) standard.
Keysight's 5G network emulation solution suite also delivers a number of 5G NR test cases validated by major operators in other countries, including China, Korea, and Japan. Keysight weighed in on contributions to 5G NR standards and certification forums such as 3GPP, GCF and PTCRB.
Keysight's 5G test solutions help speed the commercialization of most of the 199 5G devices that the industry has announced according to latest report on the 5G device ecosystem as published by the Global Mobile Suppliers Association.
