With our client an automated regression system was created in order to increase the quality of produced software: LTE Protocol Stack with L1 and belonging SW modules. It was important to automate all process steps starting from software build (SCM version based), build installation, functional verificiation with real UE (LTE), logs and reports generation, results database creation and email notifications.
Target was to create automated test system which executes the LLAPI/MLAPI scenarios in Project Explorer in Virtual and Real Test mode. System must guarantee reliable remote control of all needed devices. Final task is tests verification, results collection and effective summarization. Automated verification of LTE Protocol Stack had to meet following requirements:
Automated Protocol Stack Regression System using the FORUM Application as SW framework was created - software control unit with job scheduling, process control, database reports capabilities running on daily build basis on a large count of CMW 500 devices verifying stability and functionality of protocol stack across real and virtual UEs. System is easy to deploy and characteristic by low maintenance effort.
