The TOPS Council Testbeds Focus Group is evaluating various industry initiatives that call for testbeds to validate aspects of the migration to All-IP (e.g., numbering evolution, IP-NNI routing, authenticated caller-ID). Individual testbeds focus on one specific problem, but duplicate many functions that are common to all testbeds. As a result, these individual testbeds are inefficient to implement and maintain.The scope of the Focus Group is to:
- Evaluate existing testbed activities and proposals to identify common requirements
- Determine if there would be value in combining separate activities into a common testbed support capability
The Testbeds Focus Group has created an Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) governing testing work. Below are companies that have executed NDAs.
