Hi All,

I am new to Test Automation in Telecom domain...Need to know what are the areas that are under scope in general when i comes to Test automation in Telecom domain.

Does anyone have info on Automating Test cases for telecom billing system like Arbor BP? Please share the information on approach which needs to be adopted in automating such cases with few examples of test cases.

Which testing tool / tools are required?
Major pitfalls during development of Scripts?

Is protocol compliance testing a part of automation ?
