3GPP EUTRA (LTE/EPC) test suite is specified by 3GPP TSG RAN working group 5 (RAN5). The test suite is contained in:

3GPP TS 36.523-3 Evolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (E-UTRA) and Evolved Packet Core (EPC);
User Equipment (UE) conformance specification;
Part 3: Abstract Test Suite (ATS)


The test suite is considered as the standardized reference implementation of the following 3GPP test specifications:

3GPP TS 36.523-1 E-UTRA User Equipment (UE) conformance specification;
Part 1: Protocol conformance specification
3GPP TS 36.523-2 E-UTRA User Equipment (UE) conformance specification;
Part 2: Implementation Conformance Statement (ICS) proforma specification
3GPP TS 36.508 E-UTRA Common test environments for User Equipment (UE) conformance testing
3GPP TS 36.509 E-UTRA Terminal logical test interface;
Special conformance testing functions


All test cases in the test suite are verified against two different types of commercially available UEs over the E-UTRA radio interface and agreed / approved by RAN5 / RAN. The test cases are performed on the validated System Simulators and deployed for the UE certifications.
