Test & Integration
Formerly known as PlugFest, the purpose of the Test & Integration (T&I) Project Group is to test TIP-incubated technologies that have been developed in the Project Groups (PG) in end-to-end environments to evaluate a product’s maturity toward commercial readiness. T&I collaborates with PGs on the development of test materials, test plans, or other documents that support phased evaluation of TIP technologies toward product maturity. Effectively, the T&I Project Group will quantify the readiness of TIP-incubated technologies for integration into operator networks.
Goals of Test & Integration
- Review and define test cases, test architecture and requirements within test suite for technologies coming from TIP PGs in an end-to-end architecture.
- Ensure consistency of test material, blueprint, and badge criteria across PGs, under the directive of the TVC.
- Identify and document settings used during test and integration projects and/or events to accelerate deployment of TIP technologies in the field.
- Coordinate the testing of TIP-Solutions in TIP community labs, or other TIP-authorized labs, collate and release test-related Deliverables as defined below either independently or in conjunction with other Project Groups.
