The Home Gateway Initiative (HGI) has announced that testing and compliance consultancy TRaC Telecoms and Radio will be hosting its second annual test event.
The 2010 test event will be held at TRaC’s test facility in Hull, UK between November 22 and December 3. It will build on the success of the inaugural test event last year focusing on the performance and capabilities of the Home Gateway including Quality of Service and multi-session support. Plus, this year’s event will also feature software modularity, energy efficiency and IPv6 testing.
Duncan Bees, chief technology and business officer at HGI, commented: “As the only organisation carrying out formal test events for the Home Gateway, our members are in a unique position to drive forward developments in this area and advance the seamless deployment of IPv6-enabled Home Gateways. “Our first test event last year was a major success with wide interest from both vendors and chipset manufacturers, and with this year’s venue now confirmed as TRaC’s newly expanded test facility in Hull, UK we’re sure to build on this solid start.”
TRaC is a global testing and compliance consultancy which recently opened its flagship independent testing facility at its Hull, UK headquarters. It assists telecoms operators and vendors worldwide with interoperability testing, test plan development and demonstrating compliance with global regulatory and interoperability requirements.
Paul Russell, MD of TRaC Telecoms and Radio, commented: “Hosting this year’s test event and becoming members of the HGI, is a very important strategic step in our growth in the Home Gateway sector. “We will be able to provide a comprehensive service to our clients – many of which are HGI members – and strengthen our offering within this space.”
During the test event, the vendor participants can choose which tests they wish to be a part of and once the results have been validated by the vendor and the HGI auditing team, they are then free to use the results as they wish. Following the event, the HGI management committee will publish an anonymous summary of results.
