This will enable automotive industry for quick commercialisation of connected cars and automated vehicles
Keysight Technologies, a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation, has achieved 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) validation of cellular vehicle-to-everything communications (C-V2X) radio frequency (RF) conformance test case. As a result, Keysight is enabling the automotive industry to accelerate commercialisation of connected cars and autonomous vehicles. This will also enable Keysight to meet performance compliances with 3GPP standard specifications.
Offers C-V2X end-to-end signalling test capabilities
Keysight’s 5G radio frequency (RF) and radio resource management (RRM) DVT & Conformance Toolset along with Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset platform offers C-V2X end-to-end signaling test capabilities that includes Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signal emulation for validating User-to-UTRAN (Uu) and PC5 links.
“Keysight’s vision of enabling reliable, efficient transportation started more than three years ago, and was reinforced when we joined the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA), a cross-industry consortium that helps define 5G V2X communications,” said Kailash Narayanan, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s Wireless Test group. “Our C-V2X test solution portfolio offers a comprehensive approach to testing RF protocol and application layers, enabling users to confidently evolve with the latest 3GPP standards and safety requirements. We look forward to actively supporting the full suite of conformance scenarios, which will accelerate C-V2X device certification.”
Fast and cost-effective resolution of 5G test requirements
Keysight’s 5G RF/RRM DVT & Conformance Toolset (part of Keysight’s suite of 5G network emulation solutions), helps address a wide range of test needs on a single platform using common software. Early access to a wide range of 5G NR protocol and RF test cases for both non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) mode in FR1 and FR2 allows makers to quickly and cost-effectively resolve test requirements of 5G multi-mode devices in different form factors.
“Our working relationship with Keysight in 5G has led to another key industry milestone which will help create a unifying connectivity fabric based on C-V2X technology for the autonomous vehicle of the future,” said Prashant Dogra, vice president, engineering, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “We look forward in continuing our relationship with Keysight to demonstrate 5G NR-based C-V2X’s capabilities that support ultra-reliable communication capabilities used for autonomous driving.”
