S3 Group, a global leader at enhancing the performance and service readiness of video platforms across connected devices, has been selected by Kabel Deutschland to automate the testing of multiscreen services across CPE platforms, including Apple iOS and Google’s Android OS devices.
Kabel Deutschland will use StormTest Development Center to integrate the testing of its TV services, including mobile video applications into its test framework. Development Center reliably simulates user gestures to control touchscreen devices, enabling the testing of Apple iOS and Android OS devices. Kabel Deutschland plans to improve its testing efficiency by adopting advanced Development Center features to enable the same test script to be run across its different consumer devices, and to streamline error resolution by capturing results in a consistent manner across platforms.
This is an expansion of the use of Development Center in Kabel Deutschland. The video test automation platform is currently used for advanced, end-to-end service validation capabilities in both test and production environments.
“Subscribers want a great user experience, regardless of the device being used. By integrating all devices into our existing test framework Kabel Deutschland will be able to test feature updates and new services faster,” said Bernd Hansen, Teamleiter Service Management, Kabel Deutschland. “In particular, mobile video application testing with StormTest will give us a reliable, repeatable, and automated method to assure the quality of multiscreen user experience.”
“The modern television experience is now inherently multiscreen. This is challenging contemporary service delivery methods, requiring more efficient processes, and agile development methods. With StormTest Development Center we will enable Kabel Deutschland to deliver new services and features at Internet speed,” said John Maguire, Chief Strategy Officer, TV Technology at S3 Group.
