Media technology services provider Farncombe has announced that AirTies Wireless Networks, the wireless networking and OTT-STB vendor, has chosen to deploy version 4 of Farncombe’s OpenTest automated consumer device testing system. AirTies can now significantly increase the number and type of automated tests it runs on its hybrid IPTV set-top boxes.
OpenTest version 4 features full AV recording and faster infrared control. With an extended external SOAP interface, OpenTest can now run scripts that have been written for other automated platforms.
“Automated testing will be at the heart of our test strategy moving forwards,” said Ismail Arslan, QA manager at AirTies. “Since Farncombe introduced a number of innovative new features, we feel that OpenTest offers market leading functionality and good value for money. With this latest version and a strong partnership with Farncombe, we are now using OpenTest to almost completely eliminate expensive and inaccurate manual testing, which helps us maintain our competitive edge in the STB marketplace.”
