Ensuring the quality and correctness of complex system such 3G Long Term
Evolution LTE sets major challenges for the effi ciency of the testing
activities. Testing is needed to be carried out in multiple phases from early
phase unit testing towards system and acceptance testing of overall system,
each phase typically needing different set of test tools, scripts and
environments. As the implementation of a particular unit (e.g., protocol
layer) is often also dependent on other units that may not be available during
early phase testing, a great amount of environment simulations are also needed
to facilitate the testing. In addition, with development of embedded system
such LTE base station, the target hardware may not be available in early phase
testing, requiring execution of tests in simulated target environment.
The seminar focuses on results of the CrossNet project, which is a crosslayer
network support function and optimization research and development project for
evolving broadband wireless access standards. The goal is to connect the
existing physical layer simulation and hardware emulation models to the high
layer network emulators and testers. This provides opportunities for network
testing equipment development and network protocol crosslayer optimization in
practical networks and products.
