Beijing, China, October 20, 2020 – Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) announced that it has taken the lead in submitting a batch of new protocol test cases to 3GPP. These test cases validate 5G New Radio (NR) devices supporting the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) using Keysight’s conformance test tool suite and smartphone-style mobile test equipment based on the next-generation Snapdragon mobile platform. Keysight Technologies is a leading technology company dedicated to helping enterprises, service providers and government customers accelerate innovation and create a secure, connected world.
IMS enables operators to cost-effectively and flexibly deliver a variety of multimedia services, including Voice over IP (VoIP), videoconferencing and Video on Demand (VoD). Keysight submitted these new IMS test cases to RAN 5 on September 21, 2020. As a 3GPP working group, RAN 5 is primarily responsible for developing conformance testing specifications for the radio interface of user equipment (UE).
“Keysight’s submission of this new batch of 5G NR protocol conformance test cases demonstrates our commitment to the wireless and wired industries,” said Muthu Kumaran, senior director of Keysight’s Wireless Test Group. “Our partnership with Qualcomm Technologies Inc. , protect this rapidly changing industry. No matter where users are and how they connect to the network, the industry can provide them with affordable broadband wireless access.”
The new IMS test cases are accessible through Keysight’s S8704A protocol conformance test tool suite, which enables mobile operators as well as chip and device manufacturers to verify that their products meet the requirements of the 3GPP-specific test cases. Leading device manufacturers can use Keysight’s suite of conformance test tools to access these GCF-certified 5G NR radio frequency (RF) and protocol test cases.
Pradeep Gowda, director of engineering at Qualcomm Technologies, said: “This milestone will enable the growing ecosystem of 5G devices to deliver IMS-enabled 3GPP-compliant products to mobile operators. Keysight’s 5G platform and Snapdragon 5G The modem-RF system can work together to help more companies in the industry accelerate the design, development and rollout of 5G.”
