Alcatel-Lucent’s Developer Platform e DeviceAnywhere’s Test Center™ uniscono le loro forze in una joint-venture per creare un progetto atto a facilitare lo sviluppo ed il test delle applicazioni mobile in maniera più veloce tramite un sistema cluod-based. La prima dimostrazione live di questo progetto si terrà al prossimo MWC di Barcellona.
Alcatel-Lucent and DeviceAnywhere break down application barriers to bring service providers new apps faster
Leveraging the service provider cloud busts the application testing and certification bottleneck
Paris, February 9, 2011 – Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) and DeviceAnywhere, the industry leader in end-to-end mobile application testing, announced they are working together to help developers and mobile operators bring new services to consumers and businesses more quickly. Providing laptop access to service providers’ mobile devices in the cloud, the companies are accelerating application testing and certification, reducing development costs and eliminating fragmentation barriers to make it easier for service providers fill their app stores with cool new voice, data, multimedia and video services.
The integration of two key solutions — Alcatel-Lucent’s Developer Platform and DeviceAnywhere’s Test Center™ – significantly streamlines the process for getting new apps into the hands of end-users. Without the need for any special equipment, developers can instantly and remotely test and certify their mobile apps across thousands of mobile devices on live global networks. Rather than physically travelling to service providers’ apps testing houses, developers can use their personal computers to more quickly and economically verify their apps will run smoothly on networks, devices and operating systems, which helps expedite their introduction into app stores.
A live demonstration of this integrated solution will be shown at Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona, February 14-17, in the Alcatel-Lucent booth at the “Applications Planet” exhibit in Hall 7.
“Application submission and certification is arguably the biggest challenge for operators to overcome before they can successfully launch their own application storefronts”, said Faraz Syed, CEO and co-founder, DeviceAnywhere. “By introducing proof-based certification on live, networked devices, operators can empower their developer partners to manage their own certification process, yet still retain full control of the testing results.”
This automated, cloud-based solution enables developers to test and certify their apps without the direct involvement of mobile operators to expedite the process of getting their apps into more operator storefronts. In addition to extending end-user reach, this hastens subscriber discovery of cool new web, mobile and video apps, which accelerates return on investment for operators and developers alike.
“The integration of DeviceAnywhere’s technology further strengthens Alcatel-Lucent’s Developer Platform, which is the industry’s most comprehensive solution for helping service providers open up their networks and manage their own application storefronts,” said Scott Monson vice director of Alcatel-Lucent’s application services. “Service providers can now deliver testing and certification of applications at much lower costs and in a much shorter time-frame than test houses can offer. It’s a winning proposition for service providers and developers who will now have more transparency and control of their submissions than ever before.”
The announcement is another important step in the realization of Alcatel-Lucent’s Application Enablement vision to combine the trusted capabilities of service providers with the speed and innovation of the Web to enable a new generation of services and provide both consumers and business users with richer mobile experiences.
