Promote Confidence in Future Information Technologies for the Valorisation of European Research Infrastructures

Objective

While plenty of commercial test solutions exist on the market to address complex telecom protocols, these solutions are used to implement proprietary test solutions and are in all cases very expensive (e.g. more than 2 millions euros for a GSM test system). All the important experience in telecom testing products has however forced organisations such as industrial fora (ATM forum, Bluetooth SIG, etc) or standards organisations (i.e. ETSI, 3GPP) to work on optimised test methodologies and also process optimisation approaches to cope with heavy workloads over the past years to build the single market. Positive outcomes can then be identified as major EU strengths: strong testing culture and solid experience in test suites and test tool development. The GO4IT project will provide a generic low cost test environment and associated test services, together with free of charge executable test suites, targeting IPv6 focused protocol testing. The Go4IT project will permit to capitalize on large European investments made in infrastructures by giving the tools to all user communities to test IPv6 protocol based solutions thus increasing their trust and confidence in new generation infrastructures. One of the main objectives of Go4IT is to foster the community engagement in adopting a test and validation approach. Adapted service activities, supported by an open community web portal and an appropriate networking with other IPv6 and test related initiatives will further enlarge this user community. The Go4IT project will mobilise the key necessary resources for successfully achieving the objectives of the project in particular with universities and academics partners, industrial partners, test houses and Standardisation body.
