Keysight Technologies Announces World’s First Validation of Rel-9 Dual Band, Dual Carrier HSDPA Radio Frequency Test Cases

SANTA ROSA, CA --- Keysight Technologies, Inc. announces that the Global Certification Forum (GCF) has ratified in their latest CAG#46 meeting, the validation of Keysight release 9 dual band and dual carrier HSDPA test cases in the bands I-VIII. Through this recognition, Keysight becomes the only vendor to offer validated test cases on this evolution of 3G technology, for which some mobile network operators have already announced deployments in 2016.

While earlier dual cell HSDPA technology allowed aggregation of two adjacent downlink carriers, the dual band and dual cell HSDPA technology offers the advantage of allowing non-contiguous downlink carrier aggregation. This makes deployment easier given that network operators may have their spectrum resource allocated into separated bands.

The aggregation of downlink carriers offers a higher peak data rate resulting in an enhanced service to 3G networks subscribers as they use their mobile data applications. The test resources recently validated by Keysight provide network operators with the ability to test their radio frequency compliance against industry test plans and thus ensure a secure and smooth user experience.

Keysight offers a wide range of solutions for 2G, 3G, LTE and LTE advance technologies that covers the needs of device designers, labs and networks operators. Additional information is available at 5G mobile communications technologies.

Keysight offers an easy upgrade path allowing customers to integrate the recently validated test cases in their test systems. Contact Keysight at for further upgrade information.
