ASTRID - a company establishing, exploiting, maintaining, and expanding the national radio communication network for emergency and security services in Belgium - has recently introduced the service "radio position" that enables users to track the positions of their radios via geo localization applications.

To verify on a regular basis that offered services are still guaranteed, and also to validate the different geo localization applications before they would be connected to their localization server, ASTRID started looking for a vendor offering an automated test platform that would accomplish their testing needs. ASTRID knew that Testing Technologies had already implemented automatic test cases for interoperability testing in TETRA networks, and after seeing a demo of TTworkbench, they were taken with the tool for its unique features.

"We are sure that the combination of TTworkbench and TTCN-3 contributed to make this project such a success", says Els Heyvaert, Radio Networks Coverage and Performance Engineer at ASTRID. "A mature and powerful technology like TTCN-3 embedded in a sophisticated test automation tool like TTworkbench guarantees performance, durability and extensibility, affording ASTRID many opportunities in future projects."
