Keysight Technologies, a leading technology company that delivers advanced design and validation solutions to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, has been selected by the World Standardization Certification & Testing Group (WSCT), a third-party test house based in Shenzhen, China, to speed regulatory, performance and positioning validation of 5G devices to be launched in domestic and global markets, including Greater China, America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
WSCT selected Keysight’s 5G test solutions for certification of 5G mobile devices as well as validation of mobile phone E112 caller location (universal European emergency number) functionality in compliance with European Union (EU) regulation.
Kallen Wang, chief executive officer of WSCT commented, “As a one-stop test house for inspection, identification, certification and testing services, WSCT relies on Keysight’s comprehensive range of test solutions for 5G protocol, radio frequency and radio resource management conformance, as well as regulatory compliance. Our certification services support launches of a wide range of mobile device models, spanning different functionality and performance levels available at various price-points.”
WSCT selected several Keysight 5G test solutions, including:
S8706A Protocol Carrier Acceptance Toolset :
The S8706A Protocol Carrier Acceptance Toolset provides comprehensive access to protocol carrier acceptance test plans mandated by the world’s major 5G mobile operators. The toolset flexibly addresses a wide range of test scenarios in sub-6GHz (FR1) and mmWave (FR2) frequencies, for both non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) mode: signaling, performance and application testing including Wi-Fi, LBS and thermal.
S8714A UXM 5G RF Application :
The S8714A UXM 5G RF application is an easy-to-use and fast solution for RF testing with simple UI, quickly selectable measurements, easily viewable results from multiple measurements, and automatic procedures for common protocol use cases such as blind handovers, paging, and authentication. Useful for hardware integration, performance optimization, regression and design verification testing, and repair, the RF-focused UI makes manual and automated testing quick and easy.
EXG Signal Generators :
The cost-effective EXG X-Series signal generators address critical speed and uptime needs for manufacturing test. With analog and vector models, the EXG provides the signals you will need for basic parametric testing of components and functional verification of receivers.
X- Series Signal Analyzers :
Engineering is all about connecting ideas and solving problems. This starts with accessible performance, which is at the heart of every X-Series signal analyzer. They put you closer to the answer by easily linking cause and effect. Across the full spectrum — from our CXA to our UXA — you will find the signal analysis tools you need to design, test, and deliver your next breakthrough. Reach for the X-Series signal analyzer and make an inspired connection.
“Keysight is pleased to be selected by WSCT to provide 5G test tools that enable vendors to rapidly deliver certified 5G devices across multiple geographical regions,” said Cao Peng, vice president and general manager for Keysight's Wireless Test Group. “Early access to a wide range of conformance and regulatory test cases result in accelerated device testing.”
Keysight’s 5G new radio (NR) network emulation solutions support the latest 3GPP Rel-15/16/17 features, enabling leading chipset and device makers to quickly and confidently develop designs with advanced 5G capabilities for consumer, industry and government applications.
