Project Observers:

The purpose of conformance testing is to determine to what extent a single implementation of a particular standard conforms to the individual requirements of that standard and can hence be used for certification schemes. The deliverables of this projects, which are the CAM, DENM, BTP, GN and GN6 validation reports will summarize the experience gained of running conformance tests against Industry Implementations. C2C CC has become observer of this project as it is especially interested to evaluate the Conformance Test Platform.

Project Partners:

OSS Nokalva, Inc., www.oss.com , has been offering the highest quality standards-based software, support and services since 1988.  The OSS ASN.1 Tools, available for C, C++, C#, and Java, offer a powerful development package for building ASN.1-based applications.  These tools, ported to over 250 platforms, provide true ASN.1 2002, 1997, and 1990 support for all ASN.1 encoding rules.  OSS ASN.1 products meet the most demanding needs of organizations worldwide and have been selected for applications such as: 3G & 4G Mobile Systems (3GPP), Security and Financial Services, Telecommunication Networks, Space Communication, Military applications, Intelligent Transportation (ITS) and many more. 

What we do:

This project is going to build a conformance test platform. The conformance test platform will integrate the different ITS test suites and will allow running conformance tests against ITS equipment.

The aim of this project is to validate the test specifications and to validate the ITS communication layer base standards and thus supporting the standardization process.

This project will provide the conformance test platform to vendors wishing to assess the level of compliance of their equipment.

The conformance test platform is a reference implementation and available to all users. It can be used for certification purposes. Also, with its high degree of extensibility, it can be used for company internal testing. This project is a proof of concept (POC) that creating industry test standards is beneficial for the standardization process, the vendors and the regulators.

The list of the relevant base specifications is here.

Deliverables and Time Plan:

This project will deliver CAM, DENM, BTP, GN and GN6 validation reports listing issues detected in the test and base specifications.

In addition all the software and documentation developed in the context of this project will be made available.

This project started in March 2011 and runs until mid 2012. Progress reports will be provided for each ETSI TC ITS meeting within this time period.
