FORUM is an open source Test Tool Framework for telecommunication branch written in Python programming language. FORUM aims on testing of devices connected to PC via VISA interface. Application consists of built-in Python interpreter, giving the possibility to use the Python libraries in the scripts itself.

Forum is being developed since 2006 and is copyrighted to noriba GmbH.


 We created a light weight test application which is used by many telecommunication companies. The important factor is scripting language support for comfortable implementation of newly written tests and easy maintenance of existing ones. The application is able to control the devices over several remote interface types and run reliably in regression setups.

The solution

 Forum is successfully used in testing cycle of product development process. For complex solution, refer to Xperior Application (link).
