By Telecom Lead Team: Swisscom has selected S3 Group
StormTest Development Center to ensure the accurate and speedy software testing

This deployment, focused on STBs running Microsoft
Mediaroom Client, has instantly improved the accuracy of testing as well as
turnaround time. Earlier, Swisscom utilized manual testing which is often time
consuming, repetitive and poses more room for errors.

StormTest Development Center allows automated software
testing to be executed effectively across multiple digital TV devices.

Swisscom is optimizing the solution to test its
customized Microsoft Mediaroom Client and TV apps. This simulates the
customers’ experience and reduces the amount of time required per test hence
optimizing the productivity of its development in general. With the streamlining
ability of StormTest Development Center, Swisscom can now benefit from a
powerful automated software testing framework that is flexible enough to cover
a range of scenarios.

“S3 Group not only provides us with their StormTest
Development Center but they also act as a professional service partner that
expresses great interest in supporting and addressing Swisscom’s future test
automation requirements. Any partner working together that aids in bringing our
business forward is invaluable,” said Michael Krause, head of
Entertainment and TV Test Management at Swisscom.

Swisscom is the latest international powerhouse to choose
StormTest Development Center for its testing and validation needs. Most
recently, MediaSet, Canoe Ventures, Irdeto and BBC have also selected S3 Group
to enhance their multi-device testing capabilities.

“Swisscom sought a sophisticated product that could
support their needs to test more broad and complex scenarios with efficiently
and accuracy. StormTest Development Center met these needs immediately, and our
professional services team is dedicated to ensuring that is always the
case,” said John O’Brien, CEO, S3 Group.
