BANGALORE, INDIA: MindTree Ltd announced the release of a new protocol test suite developed for the Bluetooth Profile Tuning Suite (PTS).
The PTS is a test tool created by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) that automates protocol and profile testing by SIG members —- producing more accurate, higher quality test results and improved interoperability for Bluetooth-enabled products.
The PTS, which is mandatory for Bluetooth product qualification, will be enhanced by the addition of the Multi-Channel Adaptation Protocol (MCAP), developed by MindTree. MCAP is one of the 20 different Bluetooth profile and protocol test suites included in PTS, and contains 62 test cases which test the underlying protocol for the new Medical Device Profile. Manufactures of Bluetooth-enabled medical devices will now be able to test against a reference device, ensuring interoperability with complementary devices.
“The strength of Bluetooth technology is largely due to the interoperability of Bluetooth devices,” said Bluetooth SIG Executive Director, Michael Foley. “The new protocol test suite from MindTree will enhance the PTS, which, in turn helps our members reduce the time and financial investments associated with qualifying products, while decreasing time-to-market.”
“Being chosen as an outsourcing partner of the Bluetooth SIG is an acknowledgement of MindTree’s deep Bluetooth expertise and understanding of the Testing and Test Control Notation (TTCN) scripting language,” said MindTree CEO – R&D Services, Vinod Deshmukh. “MindTree has worked with many of the top providers in the world to develop Bluetooth-enabled products. Our new engagement with the SIG further expands our market reach and influence.”
The Bluetooth SIG, a privately held, not-for-profit trade association comprised of leaders in the telecommunications, computing, consumer electronics, automotive and network industries, is driving development of Bluetooth wireless technology and bringing it to market.
