Keysight Secures First 5G RedCap Test Case Validations
Keysight Technologies, Inc. gained approval for the industry's first 5G New Radio (NR) reduced capability (RedCap) conformance test cases for use with Keysight's 5G network emulation conformance test platform (TP168). The RedCap test case validations were secured at the recent Conformance Agreement Group (CAG) #74 meeting of the Global Certification Forum (GCF).
Introduced as a part of 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) 5G NR Release 17 (Rel-17), the RedCap specification introduces support for wireless devices with reduced 5G capabilities. These devices are less complex, cost less, and consume less power, enabling them to address new cellular internet of things (CIoT) use cases such as industrial sensors and wearables. As with all cellular use cases, RedCap device use cases must be thoroughly tested against data, latency, reliability, and capacity requirements to ensure they work as intended before being deployed onto a wireless network.
