1 Scope

This fifth part of ETS 300 347 contains the Test Suite Structure and Test Purposes (TSS&TP) for the

NetWorK layer (NWK) and parts of the system management of the Local Exchange (LE) side of a V5.2

interface.

The objective of this ETS is to provide conformance tests giving a high probability of inter-operability of an

Access Network (AN) and a LE from different manufacturers over the V5.2 interface. This ETS covers

only the procedures described in ETS 300 347-1 [2].

ISO/IEC 9646-1 [4] and ISO/IEC 9646-2 [5] are used as the basis for the test methodology.

This ETS needs to be read in conjunction with ETS 300 324-5 [1]. The two documents share a common

format and clauses within ETS 300 324-5 [1] are directly referenced.
Annex A lists the bibliography.
2 Normative references

This ETS incorporates by dated and undated reference, provisions from other publications. These

normative references are cited at the appropriate places in the text and the publications are listed

hereafter. For dated references, subsequent amendments to or revisions of any of these publications

apply to this ETS only when incorporated in it by amendment or revision. For undated references the latest

edition of the publication referred to applies.

4.3 Test step structure

General dynamic behaviours are described in test steps which can be called from all test cases within the

Abstract Test Suite (ATS):
state transitions (refer to subclause 4.3.1);
preambles (refer to subclause 4.3.2);
postambles (refer to subclause 4.3.3);
status verification (refer to subclause 4.3.4);
common test steps (refer to subclause 4.3.5).
4.3.1 State transitions

The following subclauses identify the test steps used in the ATS. In general, each test step represents a

state transition. For example in the PSTN protocol, PSTN_LE1_2 is the test step which brings the LE

PSTN protocol FSM from PSTN_path_state LE1 to PSTN_path_state LE2. The state transitions are

declared in the parenthesis (originating state - destination state) which follow the test step names.

Six groups of state transitions are defined:

STARTUP start up the V5 interface and put the IUT into the initial state as defined in

subclause 5.1.5.

CTRL state transitions used to preamble and postamble the Control protocol before a test

purpose can be performed.

PSTN state transitions used to preamble and postamble the PSTN protocol before a test

purpose can be performed.

LINK state transitions used to preamble and postamble the Link control protocol before a

test purpose can be performed.

BCC state transitions used to preamble and postamble the BCC protocol before a test

purpose can be perfo
