Keysight Validates First Test Case for 3GPP Release 17 Non-Terrestrial Networks StandardNovember 9, 2023 | Keysight Technologies, Inc.
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Keysight Technologies, Inc. has validated the first protocol conformance test case for 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 17 (Rel-17) standards for non-terrestrial networks using narrowband internet of things (NB-IoT) technology. The validated test case, which is for use with Keysight's 5G network emulation conformance test platform (TP168), was obtained at the Conformance Agreement Group (CAG) #76 meeting of the Global Certification Forum (GCF).
Satellite-to-ground communication based on 5G standards is a critical step to building NTNs that deliver ubiquitous mobile connectivity and broadband internet access to populations living in rural areas where terrestrial infrastructure is lacking. Widespread 5G NTN deployments can provide critical health, safety, and financial benefits to rural populations while improving economic conditions for industrial sectors such as agriculture, energy, health, and transportation.
The new NB-IoT NTN test case is available through the S8704A Protocol Conformance Toolset and verifies that chipsets and devices can handle the path loss and delays associated with NTN. Keysight's Protocol Conformance Toolset provides designers with a comprehensive suite of test cases prioritized by GCF and PTCRB that can be used to certify chipsets, modules, and devices and accelerate time to market.
Muthu Kumaran, General Manager, Keysight, said: "This 3GPP Release 17 LTE NTN test case validation underscores Keysight's commitment to the NTN device ecosystem and the ability to rapidly adopt new 5G New Radio specifications."

Chapter 3 of this book is titled Thermal Resistance/Impedance and Measurement. To assess a vendor’s claims about the performance of an IMS, it is important to know the test method that has been applied. Designers may need to rely on empirical data and past experience to develop an IMS specification to meet their needs.
Keysight Technologies Chosen as Test Partner for Deutsche Telekom Satellite NB-IoT Early Adopter Program02/29/2024 | Keysight Technologies, Inc.
Keysight Technologies, Inc. has been selected as the Test Partner for the Deutsche Telekom Satellite NB-IoT Early Adopter Program, providing an end-to-end narrowband internet of things (NB-IoT) non-terrestrial network (NTN) testbed to enable designers and developers to validate reference designs for solutions using 3GPP Release 17 (Rel-17) NTN standards.
I-Connect007 is excited to announce the latest season of its popular podcast, On the Line With..., where industry experts share the latest insights and perspectives on the most relevant topics in the electronics industry. In this new season, "PCB 3.0: A New Design Methodology," host Nolan Johnson speaks with Cadence experts about the shift taking place in the methods used for designing circuit boards. In this first episode, Product Management Director Patrick Davis addresses the need for change.
When high school students face an upcoming test, they may experience a mix of dread and excitement, depending on the source material and how well they’ve prepared. Similarly, professionals sitting for a certification exam to test their knowledge of IPC standards may feel a whirlwind of emotions. However, these aren't just any exams; they’re meant for operators, engineers, and managers building the critical infrastructure of our world’s most essential electronics systems.
