Business Challenge

Environment: The new 4-in-1 PC Card accommodates 4 technologies: UMTS, WLAN (WiFi), Bluetooth and GPRS. The costs of the data communication (per MB) are independent of the used technology.Tasks and responsibilities: I was the billing (BSCS/Infranet) and testing expert in a team of 4, which was part of the global End-to-End test (25 people). I was responsible for detailed end to end planning and describing of the activities in all test phases (Functional, non-Functional, Performance test, Stress test) with expected results. Test execution, drive tests, connection tests (Wifi certification and security (encrypted, non-encrypted), BT, GPRS, UMTS, HSDPA), Mediation and Rating through Billing to the Invoice. Bugs analysis and reporting – Bugs reproduction and debugging.

Result:  UMTS/HSDPA went live as scheduled; Portal Infranet is the Swisscom billing system. BSCS was replaced by Portal in the BEPPI project in 2006.
