Keysight enables GCF to activate certification of 5G mmWave devices in standalone mode
Keysight Technologies, Inc. has enabled the Global Certification (GCF) to activate a certification test plan that validates compliance to specifications defined by the global standards organization 3GPP, covering radio frequency (RF) performance and protocol validation of 5G new radio (NR) mmWave devices operating in standalone (SA) mode.
The 5G NR frequency range 2 (FR2) test plan certification was activated by the GCF conformance agreement group (CAG) on April 19 - 21, 2022 using Keysight's S8705A RF/RRM DVT & Conformance and S8704A Protocol Conformance Toolsets. Confirmed at the CAG meeting, Keysight continues to support a leading number of 5G NR RF/RRM and protocol conformance test cases.
The test plan for certifying 5G mmWave devices in SA mode supports many important 5G NR uses cases, including fixed wireless access (FWA). It enables internet service providers (ISPs) to provide high-speed internet connectivity with reduced latency and power consumption. FWA is a particularly cost-effective way of delivering mobile broadband speeds in households and businesses located in rural and suburban areas where access to wired fiber or copper connections is limited.
