Testing Technologies on Course for Further Success with TTCN-3 Based Test Automation Tools

Berlin, Germany – April 27, 2011 – About 10 years ago TTCN-3 became an international standardized testing language through its endorsement as an ITU-T recommendation.

TTCN-3 has established itself as a global, universal testing language. Numerous companies like Ericsson and Huawei have already migrated to TTCN-3 based test systems. Also standard bodies like 3GPP, the Open Mobile Alliance or the TETRA Association base their testing activities on TTCN-3.

Testing Technologies has been involved in the development of TTCN-3 based test automation tools from day one. Offering powerful tools and solutions, great expertise and an excellent service worldwide Testing Technologies has grown to one of the top TTCN-3 tool providers within the past 10 years.
