The intertwining of telecom, banking, and M2M/IoT produces a new degree of complexity. We hope our COMPRION glossary helps you to get a good overview of all the connected terms, technologies, and concepts.
There are two standardized data exchange protocols defined in ISO/IEC 7816-3 for the communication between a smart card and a terminal: the byte-oriented half-duplex transmission protocol T=0 and the block-oriented half-duplex protocol T=1. The character-oriented T=0 protocol is very simple constructed and has a low memory capacity (about 300 bytes). The block-oriented T=1 protocol is a half-duplex protocol and works with error detection at the end of block. The memory requirement is about 1.100 bytes. The smart card and the terminal exchange data with the help of these protocols.
Technical operation that consists of the determination of one or more characteristics of a given product, process, or service according to a specified procedure.
The implementation of test specifications or parts of test specifications on COMPRION test systems.
The comprehensive administration of test cases. This includes structuring in test plans and test groups as well as structured filing of test case results. A reference to an implementation under test (IUT) is required in order to create a test plan. IUT administration is also part of test plan management.
A description of how to test conformity to the product specifications, written at a level of abstraction which makes it suitable for standardization. A test specification describes the test environment. It contains precise test sequences in the form of test procedures including individual test steps and the appertaining conformance requirements as well as instructions how to check if these requirements are met. Often abbreviated ’test spec’.
Air interface used in UMTS telecommunications networks in Asia as an alternative to W-CDMA. It was developed by the China Academy of Telecommunications Technology in collaboration with Datang and Siemens to be accepted by the IT as one of the five IMT-2000 standards.
TD-SCDMA is an option for those operators who want to move from a 2G to a 3G network. Besides data transmission at speeds up to 2 Mbps, it supports circuit-switched data, such as speech and video and packet-switched data from the internet.
Software module that converts binary-coded commands on application level into a human-readable format.
