Utilities are increasingly demanding equipment that conforms to open and secure standards. This ensures interoperability in multi-vendor environments and reduces risk in critical infrastructure. These factors are especially important in communication between control centres. When it comes to their reliability and security, utilities can’t afford to take risks; a single mishap can have far-reaching consequences.
A skilled partner you can rely on
As part of a broad portfolio of data communication protocol services, DNV GL offers independent IEC60870-6 TASE.2 / Inter-Control Centre Communications Protocol (ICCP) verification and conformance testing. This helps you prove the quality and interoperability of components and solve any compliance issues during development. So that network operators can implement TASE.2-based systems without additional risk.
To ensure your products are effectively and efficiently tested, we work with you to prepare a tailored test plan that can include any additional technical specifications you might require. Afterwards, our highly skilled engineers perform the agreed services at a location of your choosing, or at our state-of-the-art laboratories.
Upon completion, we provide you with a complete test report. Failed tests include extra information to clarify the cause of the error, and to help you take the right steps to reach a conformant implementation.
Years of experience support your goals
We have deep knowledge of the TASE.2 standard, gathered over years of participation in international user and standardisation groups, as well as ample experience from real-life implementations at end-users. This allows us to offer you unrivalled support in adopting best practices and overcoming the challenges associated with reaching a compliant product or implementation.
