Interoperability Test Automation Prototype Tested & Accepted

(PresseBox) ( Berlin (Germany), )
TETRA's Interoperability Test Automation prototype (ITA) was tested and accepted during a validation session running May 11-12, 2010 in Berlin. The tests included functional testing of the prototype scripts and were supported with a number of observers by Motorola, EADS and Fjordedesign.

The Interoperability Test Automation prototype proved to be reliably capable of automated test execution and automatic log file analysis. Among others, a test case with up to 8 radio terminals and 2 base stations was performed. This test setup could be easily handled by the prototype. The tool showed great flexibility. Scripts, for instance, could be modified very fast to test alternative scenarios.

Testing Technologies delivered the scripting engine that enables the TETRA Association to develop and run a certification scheme for the Peripheral Equipment Interface (PEI). TTworkbench, Testing Technologies test automation flagship, provides an efficient environment for the development and execution of automated tests. It supports precertification tests as well as selfcertification, or test lab based certification schemes. Furthermore the certification environment can be extended in order to be used within an overall quality assurance process.

A demo of the Interoperability Test Automation prototype will be shown at the TETRA World Congress running May 25-27, 2010 in Singapore.

The Testing and Test Control Notation TTCN-3 is a modern, powerful test specification and test implementation language that supports all kinds of blackbox testing. TTCN-3 was developed at the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and is the only standardized test specification language (also adopted at ITU-T).

TTCN-3 stands out with over 20 years of experience in test specification and test automation. Being an international, open and maintained standard with standardized interfaces, extensibility is built in. This unique scripting technology comes with an unmatched feature set enabling you to create powerful test environments. Many enterprises worldwide organize their core testing processes around TTCN-3.
