HSCN readiness testing guidance note

Readiness confirmation testing


Summary

This document outlines a set of recommended HSCN connectivity test activities which should be considered and included as part of a HSCN customer's broader pre-migration test strategy and approach.

There are two components to the test/reporting scenarios. The consumer may wish to witness the CNSP testing (ping and trace to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses) to avoid duplication in testing.

  1. The CNSP simply completes the yes/no column in the embedded readiness test report during their readiness testing and in accordance with the DPS Call off Terms, Schedule 4 Part 2 test process.
  2. The HSCN consumer carries out the simple connectivity tests detailed in this document and records the results in the attached test report.

The combination of these two component results confirms that readiness is complete and satisfactory to both parties and that HSCN is available.  

The consumer test process has been divided into three areas, which demonstrate connectivity to HSCN, TN and the internet (where applicable).

  1. Initial set up
  2. Base connectivity tests (including internet outbound - if applicable)
  3. User defined connectivity tests (including TN and the internet, outbound - if applicable)

These areas are described in more detail later in this document.
