Test automation system – Proprietarily developed

Japan Novel automates integration testing with the mobile terminal protocol conformance tester (BS simulator) by using Quality Commander, the test automation system developed by Japan Novel.

Embedded Software test automation system: Quality Commander

Automatic integration testing with the mobile terminal protocol conformance tester

conformance tester and Quality Commander. (Concept)

Wireshark log auto-check tool

This tool automates the test items that check the communication log by automatically checking the logs obtained by Wireshark (former Ethereal). The Quality Commander automatically controls the BS simulator and mobile terminal and obtains the Wireshark communication logs.

Mobile terminal log analysis tool

This tool converts the terminal logs that are output in text format into arrow chart to visualize the flow of the logs.

Automatic control by AT-command
– Automating the test items that need the opposite terminal

AT-Command controls the opposite terminal in the automatic test using the Quality Commander, and automates the test items that need the opposite terminal. You can operate the buttons of the opposite terminal in CKPD that is defined by the 3G Standard Specification (TS27.007).
