This paper presents a framework based on the 3GPP test model for a Virtual Test Environment which is the main tool used by wireless-engineers for development and for testing the complete UMTS terminal software. The main requirements to the system are ease of deployment on all engineering workstations, support the design of test scenarios at a high abstraction level and, when running the test scenarios, the system shall perform much faster than in a real run in order to efficiently exercise and debug the relevant functionalities. Furthermore, the Virtual Test Environment is used to run complete test suites within a couple of hours in order to guarantee the quality of the software when it is delivered to the customer.
