Keysight Submits 3GPP Protocol Test Cases for Verifying 5G New Radio Devices


Reading time ( words)

Keysight Technologies, Inc., a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that the company was first to submit protocol test cases for verifying 5G new radio (NR) devices supporting IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) to 3GPP using Keysight’s Conformance Toolset and a smartphone form factor mobile test device based on the next generation Snapdragon Mobile Platform.

IMS enables carriers to cost-effectively and flexibly deliver rich multimedia services such as voice over IP (VoIP), videoconferencing and video on demand (VoD). The new IMS test cases were submitted by Keysight on September 21, 2020 to RAN 5, a group within 3GPP that establishes conformance testing specifications for the radio interface of a user equipment (UE).

“The submission of the first 5G NR protocol conformance test cases for IMS verification underscores Keysight’s commitment to the wireless and wireline industry,” said Muthu Kumaran, senior director of Keysight's wireless test group. “Our collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies is fundamental to helping this rapidly evolving industry provide affordable broadband wireless access regardless of how or where users connect.”

The new IMS test cases are accessible via Keysight’s S8704A protocol conformance toolset, which enables mobile operators and manufacturers of chipsets and devices to verify compliance to 3GPP-specified test cases. Leading device makers use Keysight’s conformance toolsets to access the largest number of GCF validated 5G NR radio frequency (RF) and protocol test cases.

“The milestone enables an expanding 5G device ecosystem to deliver 3GPP-compliant products to mobile operators in the process of implementing IMS technology,” said Pradeep Gowda, Director, Engineering at Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Combining Keysight’s 5G platforms with the Snapdragon 5G Modem-RF Systems, we’re helping the wider industry accelerate 5G design, development and rollout.”

I remember when IPC-4101 was completed and released in December 1997 and the question came up “should IPC create a policeman program to enforce it?” To a person that helped create IPC-4101, absolutely no one wanted such an audit program ever again. Including me and the IPC staff liaisons. Maybe we should have rethought that position.
