Keysight Technologies Selected by China Mobile Terminals for Cellular-IoT RF, RRM Conformance Testing


Collaboration enables chipset, module and device makers to optimize their designs and verify RF and RRM performance to China Mobile’s Cellular-IoT test plan


  • Keysight's integrated cellular-IoT RF and RRM conformance solution enables developers to optimize cellular-IoT designs
  • Keysight's cellular-IoT test solution, using the E7515A UXM an all-in-one test platform supports China Mobile Terminals' NB-IoT and eMTC RF and RRM conformance test needs

SANTA ROSA, Calif., Aug. 25, 2017

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today announced that its cellular-IoT RF/RRM test solution was selected by China Mobile Terminals to be used for Cellular-IoT (C-IoT) chipset and module certification. Based on the E7515A UXM wireless test set, Keysight is the only all-in-one test platform vendor to support China Mobile's C-IoT RF and RRM conformance test.

C-IoT is a cellular radio technology designed for the internet of things (IoT) for 3GPP. C-IoT, including narrowband-IoT (NB-IoT) and enhanced machine-type communication (eMTC), enables telecom operators to run IoT services on existing commercial networks to support diverse IoT application scenarios. Many telecom operators, such as China Mobile, have announced its C-IoT network launch plans in recent months.

Keysight and China Mobile Terminals are collaborating on C-IoT test plans to ensure the C-IoT chipset, module and device RF and RRM performance to GCF conformance test needs.

"Engineers can use Keysight's UXM industry-leading wireless test set to evaluate RF and RRM measurements with NB-IoT and eMTC devices to ensure standards compliance," said Garrett Lees, senior director, Keysight's Operator and Test Lab Business. "Working with key industry leaders and telecom operators, such as China Mobile, has allowed us to offer a complete solution that covers cellular IoT design, verification, interoperability and carrier acceptance test."
