From April 1, 2018 onward, car manufacturers are required to equip new vehicles for sale in the EU with an eCall module. In the event of a serious accident, this emergency call system automatically sends data to the uniform European emergency phone number 112 to facilitate faster response by emergency services. The independent test house CETECOM has now certified the eCall test solution from Rohde & Schwarz, which can be used to simulate a public safety answering point, in accordance with the EN standard. This puts manufacturers and suppliers in a very good position for acceptance tests of their installed emergency call systems, and the Russian emergency call counterpart ERA-Glonass can also be tested with an extension.

Keysight Technologies, Inc. announced that its 5G network emulation solutions are now ready for 5G NR and will continue to support the new 3GPP NR standards. The first-to-market 5G NR test capabilities were publicly demonstrated at the company's 5G Tech Connect event in San Francisco on December 14. The event brought together key industry players to advance 5G insights. Earlier this year, Keysight was the first to launch network emulation solutions (5G Protocol R&D Toolset and 5G RF DVT Toolset) that enable device and chipset manufacturers to prototype and develop 5GTF chipsets and devices.
