New QUIKSTRESS Platform
Recently W2BI introduced QUIKSTRESS new testing platform designed for lab and live testing. The platform was adopted by a leading Wireless Service Provider to support both device pre-launch and device reverse logistics processes. In the pre-launch process the devices are tested with all the applications loaded on the device exercising real end-customer usage scenarios and ensuring there are no adverse impacts on user experience under varying network and device stress conditions. In the device post-launch process QUIKSTRESS is designed to identify and troubleshoot customer experienced issues at the point of sale or to reduce the No Fault Found (NFF) devices at the repair centers to save millions of dollars both for OEMs and Operators.
4G Test Automation (QUIKPROBE and Q-DAAT)
End-to-end test automation of devices and applications has become more critical in the launch of new 4G services, such as, VoLTE, Rich Communication Services (RCS), NFC transactions, multimedia services, etc. in order to deliver an excellent customer experience. In order to simulate realistic end user scenarios, W2BI has developed extensive set of test plans that control both the smart device and the network emulators in a lab environment. The control of the smart device enables to perform realistic end user activities and measure the results directly on the device to ensure there are no performance impacts on the device (e.g. throughput, voice quality, jitter, battery drain, etc.) or the service.
Test Plan Compliance
W2BIs test automation offers significant advantages to a test plan execution when compliance is up-to-date, and the staff at W2BI works closely with Operators organizations to ensure that upgrades and revisions to the existing suites are current with the latest test plan changes. This continuous process is driven by priorities defined by the Operators. In addition, W2BIs periodic maintenance releases offer ease of set-up, multiple network emulation hardware choices, and other improvements.
