End-to-end Testing Update

Since the launch of the SMDA testing service, the Scheme Operator and Test House have been carrying out end-to-end tests with real devices to confirm testing operations and ensure potential issues are resolved in advance of assurance testing.

All Test House systems are operational with real ESME, GSME and Display devices installed and commissioned at the Test House lab using CSP Central & South and North Communication Hubs. Full test suite testing is almost complete, with final outstanding issues being resolved.

The Test House has announced that, in view of the positive response received to the Early Mover Fixed Fee service, plus latest manufacturer forecasts, they have increased the number of test engineers in the lab to cater for forecast demand.
