Our Mission

The mission of NTAF was to promote interoperability of commercial network testing tools and testing infrastructure, by defining and facilitating adoption of technical specifications.


Our goal was to facilitate and promote the interoperability of commercial testing tools and test infrastructure for the data communications and telecommunications industry.

The objectives of NTAF were:

  • Build consensus and unite service providers, network equipment manufacturers, and test equipment vendors on network test automation technical specifications and interoperability
  • Create, facilitate and enable the implementation of network test automation specifications.
  • Enhance market awareness of the benefits of interoperable network test automation.
