Product Test Plans

How do I ensure that my product will actually work, once connected to the target countries telecommunications network?

Product Test Plans are an instrumental tool in defining both the Regulatory and Industry Standards with which a product must comply. Thus the legal requirements for market entry are defined by the Regulatory Standards, wherein Industry Standards define requirements for the product to interwork successfully with the network and meet or exceed the end users expectations.
