2012 HGI Test Event to award compliance-based logo to participants

Vendors to test chipsets and products against service provider requirements

HGI, a world-leading organisation shaping the way IP services are delivered to the home, has announced that its 2012 test event will again be hosted by leading international testing and compliance company TRaC Global at its flagship test facility in Hull, UK, between 12 November and 7 December.

TRaC’s team of telecoms engineers will test home gateways for performance, and service supporting packet-handling features. Testing in the key area of a Software Execution Environment is also being extended for 2012 to include JVM (Java Virtual Machine) performance.  In total there are over 120 tests specified across eight technical areas.

Hans Werner Bitzer of Deutsche Telekom, and a member of the HGI Board and Management Committee says the test event and associated logo is very important for service providers.
