Conformance and Interoperability Testing

Jørgen Friis


Global Standards Collaboration (GSC) GSC-15

Highlight of Current Activities (1/3)

  • In 2009 12 Plugtests (standards validation) for following TBs


  • Nov 2009 – March 2010 the following events took place

    • GRIDS&CLOUDS Interop: linked to TC GRID (Dec 2009)

    • EUROCAE Gateway: linked to TC AERO (March 2010)

    • Femtocell Staging Event: linked to TCs TSPAN/NGN/3GPP (Nov 2009)

    • Femtocell Main Event: linked to TCs TSPAN/NGN/3GPP (March 2010)

    • CAT-iq Plugtests (June 2010) linked to TC-DECT

Highlight of Current Activities (2/3)

  • EP eHealth: HITCH (Healthcare Interoperability Testing and Conformance Harmonisation)

  • TC ESI: (Trust-service Status List) conformance testing

  • TC INT: Completed development of interop and conformance test specifications

  • TC MTS (with TC SCP): Started EC STF for the development of ePassport reader test platform

  • TC TISPAN: Development of IMS-based IPTV interoperability test specifications.


Highlight of Current Activities (3/3)

  • Other Events organised by ETSI Center for Testing and Interoperability (CTI)

    • TTCN-3 User Conference, India (Nov 2009)

    • GRID Workshop (Dec 2009) linked to interop event

    • Security Barcamp (open discussion event, Jan 2010)

    • TTCN-3 User Conference (T3UC), China (June 2010)

  • CTI supported CONNECTATHON 2010

    • (eHealth) April 2010

  • FP7 Future Internet architecture

    • MOSQUITO project under FIRE (Future Internet Research and Experimentation)

Strategic Direction (1/2)

  • Protocol Specification, Validation and Testing

    • Supporting ETSI committees on the application of best technical practices in standards on a daily basis

    • Protocol specification (UML, ASN.1, MSC, XML etc)

    • Build on many years experience

    • Development of test specifications (conformance and interoperability)

    • Further develop Validation techniques in TC MTS

    • Continued developing 3GPP LTE conformance test specifications

Strategic Direction (2/2)

  • ETSI Interoperability testing (Plugtests™)

    • Validation of standards and prototypes through interoperability events

    • Strengthen the organization of Plugtests™

    • Support interoperability for ETSI and other standards developed by other organizations.


  • Aim is to validate standards

    • Not implementations or products

    • Give useful feedback (CRs) to relevant technical bodies

  • But testing and debugging are useful by-products!

    • Achieve in one week what would take months otherwise

  • A tool to develop and mature standards

  • Promote technology and community

  • Ensure Testing Expertise

Next Steps/Actions

  • Plugtests™ Calendar 2010 on


  • IMS Interoperability Event 4 12-19 November 2010, Sophia Antipolis (FR) XAdES/CAdES25 October - 05 November 2010, Remote (FR) GPON 11-15 October 2010, Sophia Antipolis (FR)

  • CAT-iq #213-16 September 2010, Sophia Antipolis (FR)


TC MTS (1/4)

  • Evaluate available methods and techniques for the advanced and/or formal specification of standards with respect to efficiency and quality and with particular regard to testability,

TC MTS (2/4)

  • Assist the ETSI Secretariat regarding ETSI positions on Testing and Certification, both internally and in relation with CEC initiatives, such as mandates and the Conformance Testing Services program;

  • Give guidance on the use of selected methods;

TC MTS (3/4)

  • Provide methodologies for the specification of standardized tests including formal definition languages, definition of proformas etc.;

  • Specify the required environment for testing, covering operational and procedural aspects;

  • Provide methodologies for the generation, processing and verification of test suites;

  • *

TC MTS (4/4)

  • Provide methodologies for the execution of tests and analysis of results;

  • Co-operate with e.g.ITU-T SG 10, European Committee for IT Testing and Certification CTS programs.
