logo_midas_trasp_lowThe MIDAS project aims to implement an integrated framework for the automation and intelligent management of SOA testing. The framework is available as a Platform as a Service (PaaS) on a cloud infrastructure that supports all the testing activities – test generation, execution, result analysis, planning and scheduling – on the main testing domains such as functional, interactional, fault tolerance, security and usage-based testing. The test execution environment is based on a distributed TTCN-3 runtime engine. The adopted testing methods and technologies are beyond the state of the art, particularly on model-based testing, fuzzing for security testing, usage-based testing, probabilistic inference reasoning about test evaluation, planning and scheduling. Two pilot SOA testing experiences in different business domains (healthcare and supply chain management) are carried out.

Small Cell Plugfest LTE event




The Small Cell Forum, in partnership with ETSI, is organizing the first Small Cell LTE Plugfest from the 10th-14th June 2013, hosted by the SINTESIO test lab in Slovenia. Please note that mandatory pre-testing will take place on site the week before (from the 4th to 7th June 2013).

How to register?

Registration is open at the Small Cell LTE Plugfest website: http://www.etsi.org/small-cell-lte-plugfest

The event is subsidized to the benefits of the participants and a symbolic fee of 100 EUR per person will be charged. Attendees are responsible for all other associated costs (travel, meals, etc.).

Registration Deadline 8th March 2013

Weekly conference calls will be held each Thursday at 4 PM CET, starting on the 11th of March 2013.

Who’s invited?

All Small Cell LTE systems and sub-system vendors are invited to participate.

Vendors that connect remotely to the Plugfest must send at least one representative on site during the entire event for communication and logistical purposes.

Why attend?

The Small Cell LTE Plugfest will:

— offer on-site and remote test sessions

— cover scenarios on HeNB S1 interface (Initialization – SON, Call Setup/Release, Services, Mobility, Security, Synchronization), and X2 interface

— enable vendors to assess the level of interoperability of their implementations

— verify the correct interpretation of 3GPP and other base specifications

— conduct IoT campaign based on the test cases developed by the Small Cell Forum

We look forward to seeing you at the Small Cell LTE Plugfest!

Conferences and workshops – Calendar 2013


 Broadcasting services and  ICT technologies importantly contribute to the development of the society. The aim of SEE Digi.TV project is to speed-up digitalization of the broadcasting services, and to contribute to a wider use of ICT broadband services. As different stakeholders, especially broadcasters and industry will be addressed by the project, positive impacts of the project should be reflected also in a broader business and social environment. The project will tackle issues of digital divide and social inclusion, aiming at creation of the region of equal opportunities.

The overall objective of the SEE Digi.TV project is harmonization of the activities in the target SEE region related to introduction of Digital Broadcasting services, which shall:

1. Speed-up the overall process of analogue switch-off in the region and further development to more efficient technologies,

2. Maximize harmonization of the legislative and technical frameworks with the EU digitalization process and avoid policy, technology and market fragmentation,

3. Develop regional proposal for optimal use of freed frequency spectrum for new ICT broadband services and

4. Address the management of digital dividend.

The main goal of the SEE Digi.TV project is to constitute a transnational platform for Analogue to Digital switchover support in target region.
