TTCN is a widely used international notation used for the design and implementation of protocol test suites. Many important test specifications are written in this notation so a working knowledge of TTCN is an essential tool for telecommunications test engineers working with signalling systems.  Delegates on this course will gain a thorough understanding of all aspects of TTCN notation.  Starting from first principles, delegates will be guided through the TTCN syntax using a multitude of examples from practical test suites.  At the end of this two-day seminar, delegates will be proficient in interpretation and design of TTCN test suites. Delegates will each receive a comprehensive set of reference material.
