What is Swisscom IoT Interoperability Test as a Service?
Swisscom IoT Qualified ensures that devices, are fully integrated with the Swisscom network before deployment. This qualification requires ThingPark interoperability Tests that are covered by this offer.
What is included in this offer?
- Device Onboarding by using the 7layers laboratory test set-up (incl. on-site gateway).
- One-time execution of all applicable manual and automated test (InterOp Engine).
- Reporting of InterOp Test Results and Observations (to Swisscom and manufacturer).
Upon order through this marketplace, the device manufacturer will be informed by 7layers about:
- The questionnaire to be answered by the device manufacturer.
- The shipping address for the devices under test.
- The 7layers contact details for the project.
The assessment results may lead to an overall “failed” when at least one the following situation occurs:
- The device is not operational and can`t be on-boarded
- The questionnaire has been not fully completed or information given do not fit to the device under test
- The device stops operation during the testing sessions
- The device may not be qualified if its behavior is not good for real-life application (e.g. a static device using fix ADR for no apparent reason)
Required Preparation work
The following preparation must be completed by the device manufacturer before entering the testing:
- A fully completed questionnaire is received by 7layers.
- An operational device under test (configured in operational mode to send uplink packets at least every 30 seconds) is received by 7layers including documentation on how to operate.
If the device manufacturer would like to get the device back, he has to provide shipping address and shipping arrangement information since return shipping has to be paid by the device manufacturer.
