STOCKHOLM -- With the boom in connected devices came the boost of new services and users are trying out new apps and services like never before. In this competitive market, when consumers buy a new product or service they expect a high-quality user experience from day one. This is why it's become crucial for device and application vendors to ensure the quality of their offerings before every launch.
Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) has now introduced its Device and Application Verification service to meet these needs. Up until now, only smartphones have been tested by the company in this way. With the introduction of the Device and Application Verification service, it is now possible to verify the quality of applications and machine-to-machine (M2M) devices too.
The proven approach ¬taken at Ericsson's Experience Labs (which are equipped with the most innovative technology) all over the world helps vendors make devices more network-friendly and enables operators to make networks more device-friendly. It also reduces lead times and verification costs.
By connecting to an operator's live network, Ericsson's Experience labs help vendors verify device and application performance to meet the operator's validation and acceptance tests. Ericsson's automated verification tools help to accelerate the process to ensure that devices comply with regulatory, international and specific network requirements.
