D5.1 Report describing the testbed architecture, specification and planning

Executive Summary


After the integration of the E3NETWORK transceiver done in WP4, WP5 focuses on the definition of an appropriate testbed architecture and test planning, in order to constitute a complete demonstrator of the project and validate it in real network conditions. In particular, deliverable D5.1 provides a detailed description of the specification compliance testing, conducted by ALU/NOKIA, required for the system to be considered a commercial one. It also specifies the architecture of the testbed and technical test plan of the final prototype, so that the transceiver can be connected to OTE’s network, measured and compared against anticipated performances. Included tests address the general objective of the project, along with different sub-objectives of the DoW.


Task T5.1 is based on inputs from WP1 requirement deliverable and WP4 hardware deliverable. The proposed validation in D5.1 is divided in two parts. The first part consists of conformance testing for Point-to-Point (P2P) equipment according to ETSI Harmonised standard and others tests considered necessary for a complete assessment. Relevant criteria include BER at different Receiver signal level and other system characteristics such as spectral mask and spurious emissions. The second part of the validation process comprises of prototype integration in the network, and performance assessment against network related criteria.
