Dekra opts for Keysight 5G test solutions

  • Dekra chooses Keysight solutions to strengthen its services for evaluating the performance and security of 5G communication devices.

Founded in 1925, Dekra is an international group specialising in inspection, certification, services and claims management in the automotive, transport and industrial sectors.

Keysight Technologies announced that Dekra has selected Keysight’s testing solutions for the certification of new equipment communicating under 5G NR technology as well as V2X (vehicle to all) communication systems and ensure compliance with a variety of requirements to improve user safety.

Dekra recently announced the extension of its services to test and certify the performance and safety of 5G devices to 3GPP and regulatory standards. Keysight’s 5G test solutions will enable Dekra’s test labs to validate devices with 5G NR communications capabilities in compliance with standards and regulatory bodies such as 3GPP, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and ETSI.

Keysight’s solutions support numerous test cases mandated by GCF and PTCRB certification bodies for radio frequency (RF), radio resource management (RRM) and protocol testing. The GCF and PTCRB are network operator-based organizations that were created to provide third-party certification of cellular mobile devices to ensure that they meet a minimum set of requirements set by the members.

Some Dekra laboratories will use Keysight’s suite of 5G network emulation solutions to perform compliance and regulatory RF testing of 5G mobile devices in conducted and radiated test environments in the FR1 and FR2 (mmWave for millimetre wave) frequency ranges. These solutions enable performance and certification testing of wireless devices including electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), specific absorption rate (SAR) and dedicated short range communications (DSRC).
