S8704A 5G Protocol Conformance Toolset

Sold By:

Key Features & Specifications

The 5G Protocol Conformance Toolset provides up-to-date and comprehensive access to 5G protocol conformance test cases as defined in 3GPP TS 38.523-1 (5GS) and 3GPP TS 34.229-1 (IMS) to ensure mobile devices perform as expected on a live mobile network.

These test cases are based on the latest TTCN-3 test specification from 3GPP RAN5 required for device certification and support all GCF and PTCRB mandated frequency bands in both sub-6GHz (FR1) and mmWave (FR2) frequencies.

The 5G Protocol Conformance Toolset is part of Keysight’s 5G Network Emulation Solution portfolio. A compact solution that supports the entire protocol testing needs of the GCF and PTCRB certification bodies, the 5G Protocol Conformance Toolset easily scales with the Keysight 5G RF/RRM Toolset to facilitate mobile device verification and certification across radio frequency (RF), radio resource management (RRM) and protocol.

Comprehensive access to GCF and PTCRB protocol test cases

  • Maximum validated test case coverage of the GCF and PTCRB 5G protocol certification requirements for comprehensive testing on a single platform
  • Regular software releases of up-to-date test cases include the latest industry-approved change requests
  • Test cases are based on the latest available TTCN-3 implementation from 3GPP RAN5 required for device certification and support all GCF and PTCRB prioritized frequency bands

Reduced lab footprint

  • The 5G Protocol Conformance Toolset uses the Keysight E7515B UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform to flexibly address a wide range of requirements and support a comprehensive set of 5G protocol conformance test cases
  • A single UXM 5G platform supports all 3GPP 5G protocol conformance test cases for sub6Ghz (FR1) including all NR and LTE carriers required for the NSA and SA modes

Modular and scalable software and hardware platform

  • Common components (protocol stack, logging, automation, results analysis tools) are used throughout the Keysight 5G Network Emulation Solutions portfolio to ensure consistency in results across the device R&D lifecycle, from early R&D through to Conformance and Carrier Acceptance testing
  • Flexible licensing infrastructure allows sharing of licenses across multiple test systems to provide optimal asset utilization

Comprehensive campaign management and analysis tools

5G Protocol Conformance Toolset provides a feature-rich environment with continuous enhancement support:

  • Superior campaign management capabilities, including DUT interrogation to set PICS parameters, and display of the latest GCF/PTCRB validation status of each test case
  • Advanced logging features that enable rapid debugging of test case failures, including a TTCN-3 editor/viewer and the ability to debug from the generated log file through to the source TTCN code
  • Numerous automation features allowing unattended test campaign execution, including DUT control, SIM profile switching, and control of any third-party software and/or hardware used during testing

Description

Around the world, commercial development and deployment of 5G technology is accelerating to address a wide range of exciting use cases for consumers and industry verticals. This means mobile device manufacturers need to gain early and continuous access to the latest radio frequency (RF), radio resource management (RRM) and protocol conformance 3GPP test specifications for timely 5G NR device certification. Conformance tests adopted by certification bodies such as GCF (Global Certification Forum) and PTCRB help ensure commercial 5G devices comply to the latest 3GPP Release 15 specifications and operate as expected on mobile networks.

5G-related features, such as beamforming at mmWave, increase test complexity considerably. Many certification teams are aware of the inherent difficulties in testing mmWave devices—but with 5G NR, many are unsure about WHAT or HOW to test, and what CAN or CAN’T be tested. To succeed they need to work with proven mmWave experts who understand the whole process, starting from the R&D phase. This will help them to complete protocol conformance testing better and faster than they can on their own.

From the industry leader in protocol and mmWave test, the 5G Protocol Conformance Toolset extends Keysight’s series of network Emulation Solutions to help you streamline your current and future 5G device workflow. The 5G Protocol Conformance toolset shares key components with other Keysight 5G solutions, such as the 5G Protocol R&D Toolset and 5G Protocol Carrier Acceptance Toolset.
