Beijing, China, March 4, 2021 – Keysight Technologies (NYSE: KEYS) has announced that its 5G Voice over New Radio (VoNR) communication conformance test case has been certified by the Global Certification Forum (GCF) in January 2021. Keysight Technologies is a leading technology company dedicated to helping enterprise, service provider and government customers accelerate innovation and create a secure and connected world.
To improve customers’ voice call experience, mobile operators leverage 5G Core (5GC) and Internet Protocol (IP) media services architecture to provide VoNR services. Vendors use the 5G IP Media Services (IMS) conformance test case to verify that their 5G devices comply with 3GPP specifications, ensuring accurate delivery of multimedia services such as voice over IP (VoIP), video conferencing, and video on demand (VoD). Keysight also used the protocol conformance test tool suite to submit protocol test cases to 3GPP for the first time to verify that 5G NR equipment can support IMS services.
Muthu Kumaran, general manager of Keysight’s wireless business unit, said: “5G NR is deployed in the 5G core network in an independent networking mode, which can provide 5G NR to carry voice communications, reduce latency, and improve sound quality. We are very happy It can support a large number of 5G IMS test cases mandated by GCF and PTCRB, enabling equipment manufacturers to effectively accelerate the verification of various 5G equipment.”
According to the GSA Association (GSMA), more than 220 mobile operators have launched Voice over LTE (VoLTE). The business also relies on IMS to efficiently utilize the available spectrum and provide a clear calling experience.
Device and chip manufacturers, as well as mobile operators, can use Keysight’s 5G protocol conformance test tool suite to access a variety of 5G NR conformance test cases to test 5G NR technology functions, including IMS, Universal Subscriber Identity Module (USIM) application tools suite (USAT), LTE and cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X). Through testing, they can deliver new products quickly and cost-effectively. Test cases are delivered on a common hardware platform that supports both 5G and legacy cellular technologies, ensuring seamless handover of voice and data between 4G and 5G.
