Keysight Approved by GCF for 5G USIM Test Cases


Reading time ( words)

Keysight Technologies, Inc., a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that the company was first to be approved by the Global Certification Forum (GCF) for 5G universal subscriber identity module (USIM) application toolkit (USAT) test cases.

Keysight received the approval at the conformance agreement group (CAG) #64 meeting led by the Global Certification Forum (GCF) using Keysight’s S8704A 5G Protocol Conformance Toolset. Many 5G devices include a USIM to secure authentication of user, network access and subscription models. Integrating USIM and USIM application toolkit (USAT) capabilities within Keysight's device test solution eliminates the need for a separate SIM simulator. Access to a wide range of test cases related to 5G, including USIM and USAT, on common platforms, simplifies testing for chipset and device manufacturers.

“The GCF-validated 5G USAT conformance test cases enable device and module makers to verify that 5G devices with USAT capability comply to standards set by 3GPP,” said Muthu Kumaran, senior director of Keysight's wireless test group. “We’re pleased to enable an expanding ecosystem of 5G device makers to cost-effectively deliver products with a leading number of GCF-validated protocol test cases for both non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) mode.”

Following the CAG #63 meeting held in July 2020, Keysight announced that the company was first to gain validation of 5G USIM protocol conformance test cases. At the most recent CAG meeting, it was confirmed that Keysight’s 5G conformance toolset uniquely delivers GCF-validated RF and radio resource management (RRM) test cases for verifying multi-carrier 5G NR devices that operate in NSA and SA mode and use frequency range 1 (FR1) and FR2 spectrum. 5G device test solutions that support multi-carrier is important to 5G chipset and device vendors validating designs that use carrier aggregation (CA) technology to support much wider bandwidths and higher data rates.

In an unassuming warehouse on Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland sit nearly 50 men in uniform, waiting for their mission during an upcoming test event. They're sporting Army Combat Uniforms, standard-issue boots, a crane hook protruding from their heads, and a plethora of color-coded wires spilling out the back of their necks.

They may not have zoomed flawlessly around obstacles like the Millennium Falcon did as it careened through the hull of a crashed Star Destroyer in Star Wars VII. But the sensor-loaded quadcopters that recently got tested in a cluttered hangar in Massachusetts did manage to edge their way around obstacles and achieve their target speeds of 20 meters per second.

Mr. Laminate Tells All: Who Would Like a Mil-Spec Audit?

I remember when IPC-4101 was completed and released in December 1997 and the question came up “should IPC create a policeman program to enforce it?” To a person that helped create IPC-4101, absolutely no one wanted such an audit program ever again. Including me and the IPC staff liaisons. Maybe we should have rethought that position.
