The Cable Show -- RDK in Action: S3 Group Demonstrates Test Automation for the Reference Design Kit at CableNET

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Jun 10, 2013) - S3 Group an international digital TV company that enables operators and programmers to accelerate the end-to-end delivery of multiscreen TV, will demonstrate test automation for the Reference Design Kit (RDK) on a leading OEM's client Set-Top Box at CableNET, part of The Cable Show 2013.

S3 Group will demonstrate automated testing interacting directly with the embedded software running on the OEM's RDK-based Set-Top Box. The demonstration will highlight the benefits that test automation can bring to the development of set-top, gateway, and other IP-based devices based on the RDK. These include: the capability to easily test complex device and firmware scenarios and a more rapid root-cause analysis of failures through the ready availability of both granular and aggregated test data.

This, combined with the StormTest® suite of automated testing solutions, ensures industry-leading quality and increases the development velocity of compelling devices destined for cable subscribers' premises.

RDK is a pre-integrated software bundle that creates a common framework for powering tru2way®, IP or hybrid Set-Top Boxes and gateway devices to accelerate the development and deployment of next-generation video services. Licensees include Arris Group Inc., Broadcom Corp, Comcast Corp, Intel Corp., Liberty Global Inc., Pace and Time Warner Cable as well as S3 Group.
