World Class Standards B65(08)xx 16 Successes/failures Automated interoperability testing (IOT) Successes Automated IOT concepts successfully validated in IMS Plugtest Even event participants strongly valued conformance results Feedback on standards collected Demonstrated that TTCN-3 is independent of a specific compiler by working in all project phases with at least two commercial TTCN-3 tools Open source contributions to TTCN-3 community, i.e., TCI SIP/SDP codecs and TRI IOP test adapter Effort savings of more than 50% for IOP trace analysis in IMS Plugtest due to TTCN-3 based IMS IOT tool! Shortcomings Due to lack of IMS client availability no validation of TTCN-3 framework part dedicated to driving interoperability tests Due to funding shortage not all IMS IOT conformance checks could be automated, e.g., XML SIP message body & DNS message checks
