Keysight Technologies, Inc. announced that the company achieved 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) validation of the industry's first cellular vehicle-to-everything communications (C-V2X) radio frequency (RF) conformance test case. As a result, Keysight is enabling the automotive industry to accelerate commercialization of connected cars and autonomous vehicles.
Performance validation of C-V2X is crucial for C-V2X certification and commercialization. 3GPP validation of Keysight's conformance test case enables the C-V2X connected ecosystem to achieve performance compliance with the specifications of the 3GPP standards, both for Release 14 and 5G new radio (NR) Release 16. The test case validation, which took place in Austin, Texas, on October 23rd, was achieved using Keysight's 5G radio frequency (RF) and radio resource management (RRM) DVT & Conformance Toolset and the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset platform, which is designed to deliver precise positioning, efficient processing and security capabilities.
Keysight supports short-range wireless technologies, such as C-V2X. C-V2X is expected to be instrumental in transforming in-vehicle experiences and delivering safer road conditions for passengers, drivers and pedestrians. Keysight 5G RF/RRM DVT & Conformance Toolset offers C-V2X end-to-end signaling test capabilities that include Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signal emulation for validating User-to-UTRAN (Uu) and PC5 links.
