Objective

We at Whitewater believe that costs of Testing Equipment and Tools needs to come down drastically to encourage manufacturing sector in India for it to  deliver the globally competitive quality products. Conformance Test Labs also play a pivotal role by ensuring the safety, quality and security of products being inducted into Indian Telecom networks. As a Make in India initiative, we have developed ProtoHive, for both Test Labs and Manufacturers. ProtoHive is a suite of automated tools to check conformance of various protocols as per ‘Essential Requirements‘ mandated by Telecom Engineering Centre (TEC) India in the MTCTE scheme.

Currently protoHive supports conformity testing for all the base IPv6 RFCs and  OSPF (v2 and v3). By Q2 2019, we will also roll out modules for BGP-4, BGP over IPv6, BGP -Extensions and LDP in routing domain; and SIP, RTP, RTCP in Telecom applications domain. We would like to extend this journey by developing testing stacks for NFV, Common Security requirements for Telecom Equipment (TS 33.117) and ITSAR.  Our goal is to become a major player in Indian ICT Testing Tool industry and help the sector to achieve the heights they deserve.
