LTE; Mission Critical (MC) services over LTE; Part 5: Abstract test suite (ATS)
|Publication Date:||1 July 2020|
The present document specifies the protocol and signalling conformance testing in TTCN-3 for the Mission Critical services over LTE signalling and protocol requirements defined by 3GPP.
The following TTCN test specification and design considerations can be found in the present document:
- the test system architecture;
- the overall test suite structure;
- the test models and ASP definitions;
- the test methods and usage of communication ports definitions;
- the test configurations;
- the design principles and assumptions;
- TTCN styles and conventions;
- the partial Implementation eXtra Information for Testing (IXIT) proforma;
- the test suites.
The Abstract Test Suites designed in the document are based on the test cases specified in 3GPP TS 36.579-2 . The test cases specified in 3GPP TS 36.579-3  are out of scope of the present document.
The applicability of the individual test cases is specified in the test ICS proforma specification in 3GPP TS 36.579-4 ). Where appropriate the Abstract Test Suites belonging to the present specification may refer to other Abstract Test Suites e.g. 3GPP TS 36.523-3  for test requirements related to the EPS (LTE) bearers which carry the Mission Critical services data.
The present document is valid for TTCN development for Mission Critical services clients' conformance tests according to 3GPP Releases starting from Release 13 up to the Release indicated on the cover page of the present document.
