Keysight, Qualcomm Receive GCF Validation for 5G RF Demodulation and RRM Test Cases

Keysight, in partnership with Qualcomm Technologies, has achieved GCF validation of 5G NR conformance test cases for RF demodulation and radio resource management (RRM) in non-standalone (NSA) mode for frequency range (FR) 1.

Keysight used its 5G RF/RRM Conformance Toolset to achieve this industry-first milestone, which accelerates global certification of 5G devices. This achievement was confirmed at Keysight’s recent Conformance Agreement Group (CAG) #59 meeting, which took place in Malaga, Spain. The close collaboration between Keysight and Qualcomm Technologies on 5G technology development contributes to Keysight’s continued momentum around 5G conformance test case coverage.

Keysight’s 5G RF/RRM Conformance Toolset is part of the company’s suite of 5G network emulation solutions. It enables mobile operators, chipset and device manufacturers, as well as test labs, to validate new devices across the workflow, from early design to acceptance and manufacturing for both FR1 and FR2. The solution suite leverages the company’s UXM 5G Wireless Platform to provide early access to a comprehensive range of test cases on a common platform.

In June 2019, Keysight's 5G network emulation solutions were used by Qualcomm Technologies to successfully demonstrate the world’s first 5G PC powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx 5G Compute Platform at Computex, a leading global ICT and IoT show in Taipei, Taiwan.

Keysight’s industry-first 5G end-to-end design and test solutions enable the mobile industry to accelerate 5G product design development from the physical layer to the application layer and across the entire workflow from simulation, design, and verification to manufacturing, deployment, and optimization. Keysight offers common software and hardware platforms compliant to the latest 3GPP standards, enabling the ecosystem to quickly and accurately validate 5G chipsets, devices, base stations and networks, as well as emulate subscriber behavior scenarios.
