Boundary Protection Service (BPS) - Successful Testing
During November 2018, members of the Industry Customers Engagement Forum (ICEF) volunteered to work with the Boundary Protection Service (BPS) team – comprising MOD and Fujitsu – to undertake end-to-end testing of the new BPS IPC gateways with live IPC users.

This was done on behalf of Industry colleagues and the MOD (i.e. Team Defence). The session was a success and the Global Connectivity Test Lead praised the support with testing from colleagues at Babcock, tlmNEXUS and Ultra.
The Global Connectivity Test Lead praised the contributors:
“I wish to thank Babcock, tlmNEXUS and Ultra for all their help and support during the execution of the BPS IPC Production test event. Their involvement allowed for the end-2-end testing of the new BPS IPC gateways with live IPC users. ‘As designed’ test raised a number of defects which were required to be root-caused, resolved and re-tested in a timely manner.
The guys fully supported this, which enabled Fujitsu to successfully test (and pass) all test scripts in-scope for this week. The event wouldn’t have been the success it was, without this flexibility, patience and goodwill.”
NB: Work is ongoing with the introduction of BPS; Industry engagement continues to be primarily via the ICEF.
