Thanks to Mobile Labs’ deviceConnect™, one of the world’s leaders in athletic apparel and accessories has benefited from a 92 percent reduction in mobile delivery time by enabling automated mobile testing.
Long a standard bearer in mobile excellence, this apparel company had expertly extended their brand across users’ mobile platforms. Yet as customers increased demands for rapid updates, the company knew automation loomed as the means to keep its well-regarded mobile experiences.
Before using Mobile Labs’ mobile device cloud, the company’s development team relied on manual testing processes and physical device handoffs. Not only did this mean someone had to collect and organize all testing devices at the end of each day, this also prevented colleagues located outside of the central office from participating in testing.
After considering possible solutions, the company determined that Mobile Labs’ deviceConnect met its criteria: secure device testing with remote access, devices held on-site and seamless integration with SOASTA for automated testing.
“The key benefit was enabling our remote teams to access these devices,” said the company’s engineering director. “Now these individuals can access a device as soon as it’s available, and that’s relieved a major pain point that was set to crop up in the future as we expand our global teams. In fact, it’s helped us stay ahead of the demand curve for instances like these. We’ve been able to address several pain points before they’ve even become an issue.”
While immediately accelerating the company’s testing processes, deviceConnect has also enabled several performance boosters:
- Remote device access increases collaboration for geographically dispersed teams
- Product updates from Mobile Labs deliver new features, such as measuring battery drain during testing
- On-site device management ensures easy tracking and maintenance of testing devices
But the story doesn’t end there. To read more on how this multinational leader in athletic apparel has accelerated testing with Mobile Labs, read the case study in full.

One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The vision of a connected smart home is becoming reality with the application of integrated wireless technologies in devices and appliances. The use of standardized and TCP/IP networked wireless technologies in line-powered and battery operated sensors and controls has led to the adoption of radios in the 2.4GHz band, including Wi-Fi, BT/BLE and 802.15.4 applied ZigBee and Thread. This is driving the need for robust wireless coexistence for multiple radios to ensure throughput performance and th...
