Testing is key to ensure the market is ready when phase one goes live

Three pillars of testing

To support the market with adoption, and also to give confidence in the new digital solutions, Velonetic has put a comprehensive testing framework in place that will run alongside the build through three test pillars:



Early connectivity, functionality and end-to-end business scenario testing with early adopters group.

coordinated v3


Testing all end-to-end processes, defined by Velonetic and LIMOSS.



Testing of scenarios tailored to customer requirements, supported by Velonetic.

Testing framework

On the 25th of March 2024, we published the comprehensive overview of the testing framework for Blueprint Two. The intent is to provide a baseline explanation and understanding of the multi-layered testing framework, and its linkage through to vanguard and customer testing. For completeness, we have also included content on vendor testing and availability of the bespoke messaging formats.

We've included a summary of the testing results to date, and an explanation of the defect management process. We intend to update and republish this area of the deck every two to four weeks to ensure transparency and accessibility of the testing process to all market participants.
