Testbirds redefines mobile testing!

by | Feb 3, 2017 | QA, Trends in Software Testing, Test Automation, Global Real Device Network | 0 comments

From February 27th to March 2nd, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, we will be launching a newly developed testing solution: The Global Real Device Network (GRDN)! This new testing solution allows companies to test their applications and software on all Android smartphones and tablets in the market, all through our Nest.

In line with last year’s release of Testing 4.0, in which we combined the strengths of crowdsourced and cloud-based software testing, we now introduce the GRDN. It leverages the smart devices in our crowd of 200,000 testers in 193 countries to create unique remote testing possibilities. By connecting their Android-smartphones and tablets, crowdtesters grant access to clients looking to test apps, websites and other software on real-world mobile devices – all while maintaining a high level of data privacy and security. Once connected, the device can be remotely operated for both manual and automated testing purposes.

Access to real devices of real people

This new testing solution helps companies to get insights from the mobile market without the need to create, own simulated device farms. Clients get access to real devices of real people. This leads to realistic test results that take into account important local factors such as location-based dependency, language barriers, mobile operability and more. Furthermore, the devices in the GRDN are always up-to-date, since new OSs are automatically updated by the large crowd of device contributors.

Privacy is important to us

Of course, data privacy and security are important to us. To be part of the Global Real Device Network, Android device users need to install a custom made app that establishes a secure IPSec VPN connection with Testbirds’ testing platform. Device contributors have the ability to determine when the device is available for testing and can decide the level of permissions clients have to specific features or services of the device. For clients, testers can be asked to sign the necessary legal documents such as NDAs to help maintain a secure testing process.

Visit us at MWC!

The Global Real Device Network will be first revealed at Mobile World Congress where attendees will have the opportunity to try it out at Testbirds’ stand located in hall 8.1, booth I10. Afterwards, a beta version of the network will be available to clients through Testbirds’ own testing platform.
