Unitech Brings New Building Automation Solutions to Market Quickly With BSQUARE TestQuest CountDown

Reduced Testing Time by 90 Percent

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - December 16, 2010) - BSQUARE Corporation (NASDAQ: BSQR), a leading enabler of smart, connected devices, today announced that Unitech Electronics has selected and deployed TestQuest CountDown for the testing of its new Home Automation Solution, Elfin. The company used the CountDown automated testing solution from BSQUARE to test three TASHI (Time Attendance, Access Control, Surveillance, Home Automation and Intercom) products.

Unitech selected TestQuest CountDown for testing of the M680, MT380 and MT200 products because the company required a reliable, stable and turnkey automated testing solution. Using TestQuest test automation, Unitech reduced both costs and the time required to test the systems, which feature integrated intercom, security and control panel functionality designed to provide highly reliable automation systems for large apartment buildings and highrise offices in Taiwan and China.

According to Jim Wang, manager of technical services for Unitech, the company conducted some 100,000 system tests. "Reliability for our customers is the first priority, so we conducted extensive testing. Manual testing would require two dedicated engineers working four to five days. With TestQuest CountDown, it took just one dedicated engineer a single day to get the system completely tested before launch. Because it's automated, it takes a fraction of the time," said Wang.

"With reliability such a high priority for Unitech, BSQUARE helped create repeatable, reusable test cases and then trained approximately 20 Unitech engineers to use TestQuest CountDown test automation tools to simulate customer scenarios," said Matt Herman, director of TestQuest products for BSQUARE. "This process will help to ensure a quality end-user experience," continued Herman.

The Unitech TASHI family of products is fully IP-based for the international V2oIP/SIP protocol and offers a Web page presentation style for messages.
