This document establishes techniques for validating that an Network Terminal (NT) complies with the requirements delineated in AS5653. The purpose of this document is to provide methods for validating that the Network Terminal complies with the Network Controller requirements of AS5653. This document provides a modular, independent set of methods for each of the requirements in AS5653 that applies to a Network Terminal.
AS5653 is a new interface standard and no document currently exists that provides guidance for Network Terminal validation. A validation standard an essential part of ensuring that AS5653 provides a measurable set of parameters that ensure interoperability within the scope of influence of the interface standard.
