Keysight Technologies announced that DEKRA, a test organisation, has selected its 5G and IoT test solutions to expand 5G new radio (NR), Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5 device regulatory compliance services.
Radio frequency (RF) regulatory testing, mandated by country-specific organisations, ensure that cellular devices do not exceed certain RF power levels. These organisations also set standards for transmission levels of non-cellular unlicensed wireless equipment such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios. DEKRA said it has decided to expand the use of Keysight’s test solutions to address rapidly growing global 5G and IoT regulatory compliance markets.
DEKRA said it has selected Keysight’s RF/RRM DVT & conformance toolset, RF automation toolset and wireless IoT regulatory test solution to address requirements mandated by regulatory in US, Europe and Japan.
The majority of DEKRA’s compliance testing focuses on sub-7GHz (frequency range 1) spectrum, supported by nearly ninety percent of commercial 5G devices.
“DEKRA’s extended use of Keysight’s 5G and IoT device test solutions helps us cost-effectively offer a wide range of 5G device conformance validation and regulatory compliance services,” said Derek Feng, general manager at DEKRA Suzhou Lab Hub.
Keysight’s 5G device test solutions use common hardware and software platforms to deliver a comprehensive set of test cases in both FR1 and FR2 (mmWave) spectrum. DEKRA can address test requirements specific to 5G NR, in both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) mode, as well as 4G LTE within a single solution, reads the company statement.
