SAN MATEO, Calif. -- TestQuest, Inc., the leader in test automation and management solutions for mobile devices and applications, announced today at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona, ES that it is extending its world-class test platform, TestQuest CountDown, to support comprehensive and automated testing of multimedia services and handsets in mobile and cellular networks.

Multimedia services and applications form the foundation of many of the new revenue streams emerging in today's 2.5G and 3G cellular markets. Subscribers demand not only the ability to create and send images, play video, and listen to audio streams, but also expect flawless and TV-quality delivery of these multimedia services.

Testing of multimedia services and next-generation handsets is critical to their successful launch and adoption. However, quality and functional testing of mobile multimedia applications is not a trivial task, and is distinctly different from testing traditional broadcast and network-based video services. Developers must contend with network reliability problems, handset interoperability issues, multiple operating systems, and variations in service delivery platforms.

“Multimedia services that deliver choppy video, whether caused by poorly delivered services or faulty handsets, will result in extensive customer service support, costly recalls, and undesirable customer churn,” says David Haggerty, Chief Research Officer, TestQuest. “TestQuest brings together all the elements manufacturers, content providers, and carriers need to ensure the successful deployment of multimedia services and superior delivery of content.”
