Protocol test cases verify 5G new radio devices
KEYSIGHT TECHNOLOGIES S8704A Protocol Conformance Toolset can be used to submit the first protocol test case for verifying 5G new radio (NR) devices that support release 16 (Rel-16) features to 3GPP. Device vendors can accelerate verification of designs that support 3GPP Rel-16 features. Many mobile operators are expected to implement 3GPP Rel-16 capabilities to improve coverage, capacity, latency, security, power consumption, mobility and reliability. Release 16 includes new features that support transportation, private 5G, industrial internet of things (IoT), among other use cases. Toolset enables users to verify protocol signaling performance of a design and confirm compliance to 3GPP 5G specifications. As part of firm’s suite of 5G Network Emulation Solutions, Toolset addresss the device development workflow from early design, to acceptance and manufacturing.
