Specialist Task Force 252: Conformance Test Specifications for the Interoperability of HIPERMAN systems 


Team Leader: Milan Zoric
Team Members: François Fischer
Sebastian Mueller                  
Miguel Angel Reina Ortega
Jean-Claude Wattelet

What we do:

STF252 is producing the test specification standards to be used in assuring interoperability of Hiperman devices produced by different vendors. The standards are as follows:


HIPERMAN; Conformance Testing for the Data Link Control Layer (DLC) Part 1: Protocol Conformance Implementation Statement (PICS) pro forma

DTS/BRAN-004T002-2 HIPERMAN; Conformance Testing for the Data Link Control Layer (DLC) Part 2: Test Suite Structure and Test Purposes (TSS & TP)
DTS/BRAN-004T002-3 HIPERMAN; Conformance Testing for the Data Link Control Layer (DLC) Part 3: Abstract Test Suite (ATS)

You can have access to the draft deliverables.

Why we do it:

HIPERMAN is a wireless access system that is intended for broadband multimedia fixed wireless access as a flexible and competitive alternative to wired access networks. It is aiming principally for the same usage as HIPERACCESS systems, but is targeted at different market segments and uses a different part of the spectrum. HIPERMAN standardization focuses on solutions optimized for frequency bands below 11 GHz.

The primary feature of the HIPERMAN system to distinguish it from competitive proprietary systems will be the level of interoperability that is offered.  It is anticipated that this will lead to a much greater acceptance of radio based broadband access networks than with the proprietary systems that are being brought to the market.  This advantage can only be realised if appropriate broad conformance test specifications are available very soon after the equipment standard is completed.

Time plan for the work:

We are starting the work in September 2003 and should finish by the end of December 2004.
