Eurofins, Nokia strategic agreement
February 23, 2017
Eurofins Digital Testing, a global player in end-to-end quality assurance (QA) and testing services has signed a strategic relationship agreement with Nokia. Under the agreement, Nokia will resell Eurofins’ suite of automated test tools and professional testing support services for TV and video services, and will leverage Eurofins’ capabilities to staff and train onsite personnel to support the testing and QA needs of operators in North America, Europe, Asia, and other regions around the globe. In addition, Eurofins Digital Testing will promote Nokia as a systems integrator for its worldwide clients.
Notably, in addition to Nokia’s internal test capabilities and tools, Nokia will resell Eurofins’ TestWizard test automation suite to help operators reduce the time spent on repetitive, manual tests by providing efficient and reliable automated tests cases that ensure stability and accelerate deployment of new service. As part of the wide-ranging agreement, the reseller relationship will also extend to Nokia affiliates and distributors. Eurofins Digital Testing and Nokia will help operators with a full range of end-to-end TV and video testing services, from strategy development through execution.
“The move toward more software-intensive set-top boxes and IP video deployments requires operators to move at a much faster pace, while maintaining the highest quality experiences possible,” said Paul Larbey, Head of Nokia’s Video Business Division. “Eurofins Digital Testing is a recognised leader in QA services and testing, and we look forward to offering both their test automation products and expertise to our customers who are designing and deploying their next-gen video systems.”
