Korea Testing Laboratory Selects Keysight for 5G-NR Device Certification

Keysight has announced the selection of its 5G conformance test solutions by Korea Testing Laboratory (KTL) for global 5G new radio (NR) device certification. KTL, an internationally renowned certification body, selected Keysight's 5G solutions for 5G NR device testing related to RF and protocol conformance validation as specified by 3GPP.

Keysight’s solutions offer early access to a leading number of 5G NR conformance protocol and RF test cases validated by the Global Certification Forum (GCF) and PTCRB. This enables KTL to speed performance verification of new 5G devices for customers based in Korea and abroad.

KTL is the first test house in Korea to address 5G RF and protocol conformance test requirements in both sub-6 GHz (FR1) and mmWave (FR2) frequencies using Keysight solutions. These solutions deliver a wide range of protocol, RF transmission and reception, RF demodulation and radio resource management (RRM) test cases on a common platform for cost-effective 5G NR device certification.

A connected ecosystem, consisting of mobile operators, device makers and test labs, use Keysight's 5G conformance test solutions to address a wide range of 5G test requirements required for global certification of 5G multi-mode devices in different form factors. According to Muthu Kumaran, senior director at Keysight, KTL’s selection of Keysight’s 5G solutions extends the company’s role in supporting Korea’s ambitious goals of deploying 5G technology to deliver enhanced connectivity services for its residents. As a result of its close 5G collaborations with industry consortia, as well as leading universities and commercial organizations in Korea, Keysight has established a clear path towards bringing innovative 5G solutions to market that enable test labs to easily pursue device certification.

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.
