PCTEST has selected Keysight's 5G network emulation solutions to address testing of critical regulatory requirements mandated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for 5G mobile devices.
The end-to-end 5G test solutions enable PCTEST to characterise the performance of a 5G mmWave device in an over-the-air (OTA) test environment and certify the device according to the FCC EMC & SAR requirements for measurement of power levels, signal strength and emissions produced by a 5G mobile device.
PCTEST can now deliver accurate, repeatable, and comprehensive OTA performance and certification testing of wireless devices.
Keysight combines the company's 5G network emulation solutions with its compact antenna test range (CATR) chambers to support regulatory radio frequency (RF) testing of 5G mobile devices in both conducted and radiated test environments across sub-6GHz (FR1) and mmWave (FR2).
"Keysight's proven 5G new radio (NR) test solutions, which support the latest industry standards, greatly improve our ability to reliably test and certify 5G NR mobile devices," said Randy Ortanez, president of PCTEST. "With Keysight's support, PCTEST is better equipped to perform regulatory and certification testing requirements for cutting edge wireless device manufacturers."
"We're pleased to extend our collaboration with PCTEST, helping a worldwide leading test lab certify 5G NR devices according to requirements mandated by the FCC, operators, wireless, and certification forums, as well as standardization bodies such as CTIA, PTCRB and GCF," said Scott Bryden, vice president of wireless device solutions at Keysight Technologies."
