DEKRA is using 5G test systems from Keysight for validation and testing in automotive development
US company DEKRA has chosen Keysight’s end-to-end test systems to certify 5G new radio (NR) and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) devices, in compliance with a wide range of requirements, to improve safety in human interaction with technology, including vehicles.
DEKRA provides services for testing and certifying the performance and safety of 5G devices according to 3GPP and regulatory standards. Keysight’s 5G testers allow such labs to validate devices equipped with 5G NR connectivity, in compliance with standards organisations and regulatory bodies such as 3GPP, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and ETSI. Keysight supports a number of test cases mandated by GCF and PTCRB for radio frequency (RF), radio resource management (RRM) and protocol testing.
“Keysight understands the complexity that can result from rapid technological development and increasing regulatory requirements,” stated Kailash Narayanan, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s wireless test group. “We’re pleased to work with DEKRA to help validate the next generation of devices with 5G connectivity and strengthen confidence in new technologies.”
Select lab sites at DEKRA will use Keysight’s suite of 5G network emulation products to support conformance and regulatory RF testing of 5G mobile devices in conducted and radiated test environments across Frequency Range 1 (FR1) and FR2 (mmWave). These systems deliver accurate, repeatable and comprehensive performance and certification testing of wireless devices related to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), specific absorption rate (SAR) and dedicated short range communications (DSRC).
