Field Performance /
Field performance testing consists of a drive test vehicle that contains Mobile devices to collect real time data monitored by a Test engineer which is further used to analyze the Mobile device performance for different cellular networks in a given area. This test setup helps to understand the experience of end user in that specific area.
The testing activity was performed with User equipment terminals configured according to the automated test plan to perform voice testing, data testing, Streaming, MultiRAB testing with several devices simultaneously to get the clear picture of device performance in real time on live network.Different software’s can be used to monitor real time performance of the Mobile device being testing which gives the clear picture of Protocol packets and with the GUI it gives user data transmitted to and from Base Station Some testing tasks for field testing, such as call performance activity, extensive low-level interface regression testing can be laborious and time consuming to do manually. In addition, a manual approach might not always be effective in finding certain classes of defects. Test automation in order to execute call performance activity offers a possibility to perform these types of testing repeatedly and effectively with effective utilization of resources. Once tests have been automated, they can be run quickly and repeatedly. Many times, this can be a cost effective method for regression testing of software products or applications that have a long maintenance life. Even minor patches over the lifetime of the application can cause features to break which were working at an earlier point in time.
