  • Telecom FAT/SAT /NAT Testing

    This post is intended for anyone interested in the FAT, SAT and NAT testing and who may have interest in the various test documents and test results. All results are located on the consent server of Alliander telecom . Finding documents on a content server is not a pleasant activity because of the large amount of documents and directories you can find there. Often content servers are a mess due to lac of ownership.

    This Wiki is designed to give readers access to test documents and not to be worried about document locations. This wiki is developed to offer company management access to test status and results with a single click of the mouse. With a single click of the mouse you can get access to access to any test document and or material you like.

    During my work as test manager at Alliander telecom NV I developed a wiki page to give access to the large amount of documents which were needed to test this new network. All documents and content of the tests defined are developed by me during the two years I worked for this project.
    The following link is the page I have used within Alliander Telecom NV to make easy access to documentation possible. Since all links to docs are on their content server my privet wiki has no longer access there, keep this in mind. This wiki is for evaluation purpose only.

  • Telecom circuit migrations the 85/15 rule

    The word migration means moving. This statement sounds simply but imagine the question what are you going to move and how. There are many possibilities on what you move and as many possibilities of how to do it. Actually we move every day without realizing this.

    This wiki is about moving telecom connection or circuits from an old telecommunications infrastructure to a new infrastructure. Telecom Operators renew daily their systems and networks, and this means that operators are busy every day to move or migrate their connections. An existing telecom organization migrates everyday. But what if the company is no operator but and energy distributor.

    Alliander Telecom NV is no operator but has an old telecom infrastructure which is going to be replaced by a new one. This means that ………………………………………………………………………………………………….

    Most important with respect to migrations is the administration of circuits and the preparation of the actual move. Once this is done migrations is a feast to do. Most of the work 85% to be done in order to migrate is preparations, the other 15% is the execution. Managers often have problems to accept and understand this.

    This wiki was developed during my activities as a test and verification manager at Alliander telecom. Its explains which part of the organization is responsible for what part of the network. The demarcations show exactly were the responsibilities move from one departments to the other departments. This wiki was used to make discussions about this topic more easy.
