Keysight Technologies Certifies 5G Devices for 3GPP

By Ken Briodagh

Keysight Technologies, a technology company for connectivity and security, recently announced that its 5G test solutions have been selected by China Telecommunication Technology Laboratory (CTTL) to certify 5G devices according to 5G new radio (NR) 3GPP specifications in both frequency range FR1 (frequency range from 450 to 6000 MHz) and FR2 (frequency range from 24250 to 52600 MHz).

CTTL is governed by China Academy of Information and Communication Technology (CAICT), a scientific research institute directly under the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) of China. CTTL now has access to Keysight’s 5G test solutions to support China’s millions of 5G connections, as predicted by the GSM Association.

Keysight’s 5G over-the-air test capabilities include the company’s compact antenna test range (CATR) chamber, which integrates with Keysight’s network and channel emulation solutions. This reportedly creates an end-to-end 5G solution that supports testing in any form factor and in any 3GPP-specified frequency band.

Last year, all three major mobile operators in China launched commercial 5G services, and by now have reported more than 130,000 5G base stations deployed. Major Chinese mobile device manufacturers, including, Xiaomi, OnePlus and OPPO, have selected Keysight’s comprehensive range of 5G solutions to accelerate development, validation and carrier acceptance of their devices.

“We’re pleased to extend our collaboration with CTTL as it underscores our ability to address a market expected to create a connected, secure and informed society,” said Cao Peng, senior director of the Commercial Communications group at Keysight.
