HGI Test Cases and Related Documents

HGI’s test procedures, test events and collated test results provided detailed insight into how Home Gateways should be tested. HGI’s first test event was held in 2009 in Lannion, France at the premises of Orange Labs. Subsequent test events were held in Hull, England at TRaC Global. Test cases for the HGI Open Platform 2.0 requirements were also executed remotely using downloadable test code developed by HGI members. In this page, selected test case working documents which were available to HGI members are published.

Test code developed by HGI for Open Platform 2.0 is not available to the public.
