Philippe COUSIN Interoperability Service Manager Milan ZORIC ETSI PTCC (Protocol and Testing Competence Centre) In pursuit of Interoperability RFID and Telecommunications Workshop 25 May 2004
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ About ETSI European Telecommunications Standards Institute Sophia Antipolis, France Develops a wide range of specifications as Europes contribution to world-wide standardization of telecommunications and associated domains Approx. 800 Members, 5000 experts Successful ETSI technologies include GSM, 3G UMTS, TIPHON (VoIP), DECT, TETRA, IN, ISDN (and B-ISDN), OSA etc. Visit our website: Or portal:
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ Aim of Standardisation Ultimate aim of standardisation is (global) interoperability Likelihood of interoperability is increased with Well-defined, accurate and unambiguous standards Standards that are validated Systematic testing of products based on those standards Means standards of high technical quality Through the pragmatic use of modern techniques … for specification (UML, SDL, ASN.1) … and testing (TTCN)
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ Ensuring interoperability? Traditionally, conformance testing has been the domain of telecommunications industry while interoperability testing has mainly been limited to the Internet world Many see these as either/or solutions Recent experience shows that both approaches have their strengths when used wisely. Value to combine conformance testing with interoperability testing Quality of specifications also contribute to interoperability
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ Unique ETSI Resources TC MTS (Methods for Testing and Specification) Development of methodologies, techniques and languages ETSI PTCC (Protocol and Testing Competence Centre) Supports ETSI TBs on the application of formal techniques in standards on a daily basis Development of test specifications (conformance and interop) ETSI Plugtests Service Validation of standards and prototypes through interoperability events (bake-offs) All three entities are highly complementary
ETSI Plugtests Overview Philippe COUSIN ETSI Interoperability Service Manager
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ Plugtests is a professional ETSI service Created in 1999, specialized in the organization of interoperability events Neutral and open to all organisations Skilled ETSI Staff managing test events uses Experts from ETSI and other technical communities
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ During a Plugtests event, engineers can Come & Test ! Known also as bake-off, plugfests and interop Plugtests : Provides useful feedback to the standardization process A unique opportunity to meet partners and competitors Improves both quality and interoperability of implementations Helps debugging fast all together Technical event only. No sales, no marketing No certification, not a lab
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ We make it easy for you ! Come &Test, Well do the rest ! You will meet your technical community gathered in the same place over a week, working on the same issues Efficient and quick debugging COST & TIME SAVING !
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ What does a Plugtests look like???
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ We dedicate our time to your satisfaction! 42 events in 4 years, 2500 engineers, 890 Companies Usefulness ranked at 4.3/5 by 1600 surveyors Service satisfaction ranked at 4.35/5 IPv6 Plugtests in October 2004 :
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ Plugtests Areas: broad and open range! Services and applications: J2ME, OSA/PARLAY, video over DSL, OMA IMPS, SyncML, … Telecom: Hiperlan2, DSL, SMS/MMS, NGN, Speech Quality, powerline, smart card, … Active in IP world: IPv6 and MIP6, SCTP, MPLS, SIGTRAN, SIP,.. New topics: GRID, WLAN/WMAN, LBS and ITS, Security, RFID, … Synergy Conformance & Interoperability in close cooperation with ETSI Committees and PTCC Valorisation on ETSI testing experience in testing matters (test spec., methodologies, input to certification/logo programmes)
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ Hot technologies in the pipe for 2004 OSA/Parlay #2 SiPit #14 SQTE #3 Security (PKI, XadES) ebXML SIGTRAN DSL #3 ENUM Plugtests technical workshop XadES IPv6#5 F-MMS J2ME Powerline Smart Card NGN :eEurope WLAN-WMAN ENUM Plugtests Q Watch out !

Thank you! Keep looking at WHAT ABOUT AN RFID INTEROPERABILITY EVENT ALREADY IN 1Q 2005 ?
ETSI PTCC Protocol & Testing Competence Centre Overview Milan Zoric ETSI PTCC expert
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ PTCC mandate Provide expert support to ETSI Technical Bodies State-of-the art techniques for developing protocol specifications Expertise and management assistance for test specification development In both cases we provide Language expertise Tools expertise Pragmatic methodology expertise The emphasis is on protocol aspects less involved with radio parameter specifications or testing
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ Key Activities in the Evolution of an ETSI Standard SimulationPrototyping Plugtests (Conformance) Testing MTS PTCC STFs Plugtests Text (ASN.1 MSC SDL ECN TTCN) Requirements Product ETSI Standard
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ PTCC Expertise Technical competence GSM/3G, DECT, INAP, VoIP, WirelessLan, B-ISDN etc. Protocol Specification and Validation UML (Universal Modelling Language), MSC (Message Sequence Charts), SDL (Specification and Description Language), ASN.1 (Abstract Syntax Notation One), Production of Test Specifications World recognised testing expertise TTCN (Tree and Tabular Combined Notation) Modern tool support
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ PTCC Services Specification Techniques Hands-on assistance protocol modelling with UML, SDL, MSC application of well-proven methodology (e.g., MTS Descriptive SDL) data definition and encoding (ASN.1, ECN) maintenance Validation techniques MTS validation handbook Proof-check services (ASN.1 and SDL) Registration of Object Identifiers Improving quality of standards while speeding-up completion
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ PTCC Services Testing Hands-on assistance assistance in the planning and production of test specifications use of TTCN and ISO testing methodology PICS (Protocol Implementation Conformance Statement) TSS & TP (Test Purposes) production of detailed test suites (TTCN) Computer-Aided Test Case Generation (CATG) TTCN proof-check and analysis services Technical management of testing STFs Development of TTCN-3 Assuring productive and timely development of high quality test specifications
RFID and Telecommunication Services Workshop 25/05/ ETSI and Testing ETSI produces test specifications Developed by Specialist Task Forces (STFs) under PTCC Does not do actual testing or certification Is a strong demand for test suites Radio and other physical aspects are regulatory Increased self-testing done by ETSI members Test Suites are integral to development processes Mainly conformance testing specifications But also interoperability test specifications MTS IPT (IP Testing group) Scoping phase (Jan-March 2003) Concentrate on IPv6 (QoS, security, mobility aspects)
