Swisscom chooses S3 for IPTV testing

Swisscom is using digital TV quality assurance company S3’s StormTest Development Center for software testing on its IPTV set-top boxes.  

StormTest Development Center allows automated software testing to be executed across multiple digital TV devices. Swisscom is using the solution to test its customised Microsoft Mediaroom Client and TV apps. This simulates the customers’ experience and, according to S3, reduces the amount of time required per test.

“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. “We strive to deliver the ultimate IPTV experience to more than 600,000 customers, and as interactive services and multiple devices continue to become the norm, we need a partner who can help us ensure the highest quality of end-to-end platforms.  We have found that partner with S3 Group.”
