This sixth part of EN 300 061 specifies the Abstract Test Suite (ATS) and partial Protocol Implementation eXtra

Information for Testing (PIXIT) proforma for the Network side of the T reference point or coincident S and T reference

point (as defined in ITU-T Recommendation I.411 [10]) of implementations conforming to the stage three standard for the

Subaddressing (SUB) supplementary service for the pan-European Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) by means

of the Digital Subscriber Signalling System No. one (DSS1) protocol, EN 300 061-1 [2].

EN 300 061-5 [4] specifies the Test Suite Structure and Test Purposes (TSS&TP) related to this ATS and partial PIXIT

proforma specification. Other parts specify the TSS&TP and the ATS and partial PIXIT proforma for the User side of the

T reference point or coincident S and T reference point of implementations conforming to EN 300 061-1 [2].

4 Abstract Test Method (ATM)
4.1 Description of ATM used

The requirement for testing the network IUT is to focus on the behaviour of the network IUT at the user-network interface

where a T reference point or coincident S and T reference point applies. Thus the IUT is the network DSS1 protocol

entity at a particular user-network interface and is not the whole network.

It is possible to specify an ATS based on a Single party (remote) test method for such an IUT. However, it is considered

that an ATS based on such an approach is of limited use as the only way to specify IUT generated PDUs is to use the

"implicit send" statement. Many users of such an ATS would replace the "implicit send" statements with descriptions of

the behaviour at other interfaces.

An ATS based on a multi-party test method is considered to be more useful in that it is closer to how a real test suite

would be constructed. Such a test method specifies behaviour at multiple network interfaces. One very important

limitation here is that tests are focused on one particular interface. Thus the test system is made up one Main Test

Component (MTC) and one or more Parallel Test Components (PTC), see figure 1.

SIST EN 300 061-6 V1.2.4:2005
9 EN 300 061-6 V1.2.4 (1998-06)

In a master/slave arrangement, the MTC is considered to be the master while the PTCs are the slaves. The "slave" testers

are only an explicit description of how to deal with the "other" interfaces during the testing process, i.e. "how to make the

IUT send the required message".

This means, in particular, that the verdict will only be assigned from the protocol aspects observed on the interface under

test (i.e. by the "master" tester), as it would be observed by a terminal connected to this interface. A failure in the

correlation between the protocol at the different interfaces to which the different testers are connected, i.e. in the

mechanism of the functional service itself, will not cause a FAIL verdict. For instance, if the IUT fails to send a message

on the tested interface after another interface has received the proper stimulus, the verdict will be INCONCLUSIVE.

The MTC MTCA has two functions in this configuration. Firstly, it has the MTC function of controlling the one or more

PTCs. Thus it is responsible for starting the PTCs and afterwards co-ordinates activities by exchanging Co-ordination

Messages (CM) with the PTCs. Secondly it is responsible for the behaviour of the Lower Tester (LT) at PCO L0.

A combination of the remote and multi-party test methods is applied. As can be seen from figure 1, several PCOs are

used. All PCOs reside at the service access points between layers 2 and 3.

Figure 2: Combination of the remote and multi-party test methods

The MTC PCO is named "L0" ("L" for Lower). PCO L0 is used to control and observe the behaviour of the IUT and test

case verdicts are assigned depending on the behaviour observed at this PCO. The PTC PTC1 uses PCO L1. This PCO is

used to control and, in a limited way, observe the behaviour of the network equipment at interfaces other than the one

under test. No verdicts are assigned at this PCO.

As stated in a previous paragraph, the non-receipt of network generated messages at L0, which are stimulated by events at

the L1, will result in INCONCLUSIVE rather than FAIL verdicts being assigned.

4.2 Alternative ATM

As stated in subclause 4.1, an ATS based on a single-party (remote) ATM is possible. Such an ATS may be generated

from the one specified in the present document. The following general steps should be taken:

1) remove all PTC behaviour;
2) remove all CREATE statements;

3) replace CMs which are used to provoke PDUs at the MTC, with implicit send statements.

An example, showing the difference between the multi-party ATM and single-party ATM for a single test case, is given in

tables 1 and 2.
