Abstract

This paper provides an overview of a research & development project in the area of automated testing of complex telecommunication networks. The paper reports on the current state of the project, which, for example, includes the development of a database for the organisation and the management of the data that is generated in a network test. Along this line the paper also briefly reports on a future direction in the project, a data warehouse for the management and the organisation of data that is gathered in the wider scope of the project. A major focus of the paper is the proposal and description of a decision support system (DSS). The potential of such a system has been identified in previous research. The overall aim of the DSS is to support the decision making of test engineers to further improve the automated testing of complex telecommunication networks.
