Wireless communication systems more and more become part of our daily live. Especially with the Internet
of Things (IoT) the overall connectivity increases rapidly since everyday objects become part of the global network.
For this purpose several new wireless protocols have arisen, whereas 6LoWPAN (IPv6 over Low power Wireless
Personal Area Networks) can be seen as one of the most important protocols within this sector. Originally designed
on top of the IEEE802.15.4 standard it is a subject to various adaptions that will allow to use 6LoWPAN over
different technologies; e.g. DECT Ultra Low Energy (ULE). Although this high connectivity offers a lot of new
possibilities, there are several requirements and pitfalls coming along with such new systems. With an increasing
number of connected devices the interoperability between different providers is one of the biggest challenges, which
makes it necessary to verify the functionality and stability of the devices and the network. Therefore testing becomes
one of the key components that decides on success or failure of such a system. Although there are several protocol
implementations commonly available; e.g., for IoT based systems, there is still a lack of according tools and
environments as well as for functional and conformance testing. This article describes the architecture and
functioning of the proposed test framework based on Testing and Test Control Notation Version 3 (TTCN-3) for
6LoWPAN over ULE networks.
