Read our Terms of Reference

Why we do it:

Experience with the development of other standards has shown that involvement of experts on conformance testing of protocols requires highly specialised knowledge in testing methodology, TTCN language and dedicated tools. There is an advantage if testing experts are disjoint from experts developing the protocol specifications. In addition, the development of this kind of specifications requires significant effort and it cannot be expected that this effort can be provided on a voluntary basis. Hence the involvement of testing experts is needed in order to assure timely completion and high quality of the Test Specifications. These testing experts are not available on TC TISPAN level and need to be recruited on a funded basis. The experts will use dedicated software tools available at ETSI.

Time plan for the work:

We intend to complete our work by March 2008.
