QualiTest releases advanced IoT testing solution

Benny Sand of QualiTest Group

QualiTest Group, the pure play QA and independent software testing company, has launched a comprehensive testing solution dedicated to IoT. The offering was developed over the course of testing thousands of IoT projects involving both hardware and software, and across diverse software ecosystems.

The solution also includes the development and deployment of industry-leading advanced testing labs. With over 20 billion IoT devices expected to be in use worldwide by 2020, IoT testing has become the newest and fastest-developing sector in software testing. QualiTest’s IoT testing solution includes a full range of security, performance, interoperability, connectivity, power, robustness, communication, and mobile app testing services.

The testing service uses real devices, with an innovative strategy that combines controlled simulated network experiments through advanced lab testing with real-world crowd testing. The comprehensive nature of the testing solution mitigates business risk and helps ensure IoT product launches will succeed, avoiding costly recalls.

The diversity of devices, applications and platforms within IoT, as well as the lack of standards, requires comprehensive testing and a diversified portfolio – with expertise in a wide range of fields, including communications and other protocols, hardware trade-offs, software coding, big data impact, security, user experience, and the demands of both end users and regulators.

As a multinational company with expertise across a wide variety of industries and familiarity with regulatory requirements in many industries and countries, QualiTest is uniquely positioned to offer comprehensive testing meeting the IoT interoperability challenge.

“QualiTest understands that when it comes to IoT, one size does not fit all. Choosing the right testing partner is crucial and can mean the difference between a business’s success and failure,” said Benny Sand, VP Knowledge & Innovation of QualiTest Group.

“As an early deployer of IoT testing, we have honed our expertise across industries to develop our unique testing solution, combining real devices with real networks to more reliably identify any bugs that users will encounter in the real world, exposing interoperability concerns. IoT testing must ensure that products and applications are ready by deadlines and meet consumer expectations, enabling customers to deliver glitch-free devices that consumers trust.”

As connectivity and IoT are adopted by an increasing number of industries, the global IoT market is set to grow to $457 billion (€370.62 billion) by 2020. Effective IoT software testing and quality assurance is crucial to avoiding costly cyber recalls, the likes of which Chinese IoT firm Hangzhou suffered when it was forced to recall 4.3 million insecure connected cameras that contributed to DDoS attacks on the world’s largest websites in 2016.
