Azimuth Systems Inc., a provider of automated, real-world mobile performance test solutions, announced the availability of its Device Automation & Control (DAC) system, enabling unattended execution of user experience testing on smartphones and other mobile devices. DAC was developed to address the requirements of both lab- and field-based test organizations, providing a common tool set and methodology across test environments. With the introduction of DAC, Azimuth continues the market-focused evolution of its integrated, end-to-end mobile performance test platform, and gives customers the benefit of the only organically developed, integrated suite of test solutions capable of addressing the complete life cycle, from R&D to post-launch. Azimuth will be exhibiting its latest test solutions at Mobile World Congress from February 25-28 in Barcelona in Hall 7, Stand 7I90.
DAC automates the operation, results capture and reporting of the device functions which are most important to operators, OEMs, chipset manufacturers and other mobile ecosystem partners. Key features include:
- Automation of voice calls, messaging, data and video streaming
- Control of test bed elements including diagnostic monitors, network emulators, analysis and reporting
- Integration with Azimuth’s Test Builder automation suite, enabling drag-and-drop creation of test plans to fit customers’ unique requirements.
DAC seamlessly integrates with all Azimuth products and solutions, including the proven Director II Test Executive and Test Builder Automation Suite, the award-winning ACE™ MX and MX2 MIMO channel emulators, the Azimuth Field-to-Lab solution to replay real-world RF in the lab, and the Azimuth Over-the-Air (OTA) platform. DAC for Android is available now, and support for other major OS platforms will be available in the first half of 2013.
Amit Malhotra, vice president of software products at Azimuth, said, “With the proliferation of new network, service and application technologies, the mobile industry must rapidly expand the scope of device testing while maintaining a common test plan and methodology, conserving costs, and minimizing time to market. Device Automation & Control directly addresses these requirements and provides exceptional leverage to both lab and field testing.”
Azimuth’s senior executives will be attending Mobile World Congress and welcome visitors to meet with them in Hall 7, Stand 7I90.
