Solution reduces testing time and optimizes testing costs for TÜV
Rheinland

SANTA ROSA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/PSAP?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#PSAPlt;/agt;–Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company
that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate
innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that TÜV
Rheinland
, a leading provider of technical services worldwide, has
selected Keysight’s comprehensive emergency
call (eCall) solution
to reduce testing time.

The Pan-EU eCall regulation, which has been enforced since April 1,
2018, requires rigorous testing of emergency call functionality in all
new cars and light vans. Keysight’s automated eCall conformance and
homologation test solution supports 2G, 3G and 4G based emergency call
systems and offers the ability to test eCall over Long-Term Evolution
(LTE), which is referred to as Next Generation eCall or NG eCall. It is
a modern, multi-cell, multi-format base station emulator that is
compliant with the GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) test cases
according to Annex VI of the EU Regulation 2017/79 and Annex 10 of the
UN-R144.

“Keysight Technologies’ eCall conformance test solution has
substantially reduced TÜV Rheinland’s testing time, enabling us to
optimize testing costs for the customer,” stated Georg Hariskos,
engineering expert, vehicle and component test at TÜV Rheinland.
“Central to TÜV Rheinland’s time and financial savings is Keysight’s
easy-to-use and automated eCall conformance test suite, including
automation of the strict GNSS test cases according to Annex VI of the EU
Regulation 2017/79.”

“Keysight not only delivers the right wireless systems for
forward-looking solutions, they offer great after-sales support in all
matters of wireless and integration. We are looking forward to
continuing to work with them in the future,” stated B. Taslica, global
head of Technical Process Optimization – IoT Wireless BS products at TÜV
Rheinland.

Keysight’s Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) emulation software and
ERA-GLONASS conformance testing solution are certified by NavCert,
a global provider of technical services, verification, validation and
certification services in positioning and navigation.

“Keysight is committed to supporting eCall testing requirements on an
ongoing basis,” said Siegfried Gross, vice president and general manager
of Keysight’s Automotive and Energy Solutions business unit. “Keysight’s
state-of-the-art eCall testing platform
, combined with our
