Discover how managed USB hubs can accelerate delivery of your apps. 

"In a recent mobile app testing survey, 84 percent of QA organisations said they need to test on real devices in order to be successful.”

Better, faster more effective real device testing.

Create perfect mobile experiences. Mobile device testing on real devices with managed USB hubs.

You already know mobile competition is fierce. And you know it’s never been harder to get new users—or easier to lose existing ones.

These days, clunky CX and poor performance erode your brand. Negative reviews undermine your reputation. Enterprise apps that lack stability leave themselves open to security breaches. And if your app has bugs? Might as well forget it.

These days, clunky CX and poor performance erode your brand. Negative reviews undermine your reputation. Enterprise apps that lack stability leave themselves open to security breaches. And if your app has bugs? Might as well forget it.

Without a better understanding of where your bottlenecks occur, your revenue and your business are at risk.

The mobile market is dynamic and hard to keep pace with

Yet the challenges of getting mobile QA right are nuanced.  You know you need more real-world feedback. But that takes time, money, scalability, and resources you may not have access to.

Testing on actual devices is time-consuming and expensive

And even though you know skimping on QA is a false economy, you’re conflicted. You’re torn between the high cost of testing on real mobile devices and the convenience of emulators. 

So the question comes down to: ‘do I want accuracy? or “do I want agility?”

The answer lies in finding the right balance between the two. Between emulator and device-based testing—unrestricted by time and budget. And that means looking for new and better ways to manage your mobile testing.

The new generation of managed USB hubs redefines how users run tests on real devices. And in this white paper you’ll learn how they can help you to:

  • Crank up your operational efficiency by up to 500%
  • Monitor, control and charge devices reliably and safely
  • Empower your dev team to create the best possible product
  • Comply with industry regulations and have one less thing to worry about
  • Cut costs, save on resources and free up your team’s time with an effective test lab
  • Get more real-world feedback using real devices for a greater degree of confidence
  • Dramatically scale up your QA efforts while slashing manual tasks

Why use USB hubs for mobile device testing?

There are two simple reasons why you should consider using our managed hubs for app and mobile device testing.

1. App performance
Monitor the performance of the device battery charge/discharge when your Apps and software are running on the device. This enables testing to focus on the power consumption of Apps, something that can be critical to the App’s commercial success.

2. Manual and automated testing on real devices.
Do more testing in-house on real devices.
Manual testing on a number of devices locally enable you to explore how the app behaves on the device, how well the app conforms to the platform’s guidelines (Apple, Microsoft, and Google all have specific guidelines for apps on their platforms) and other areas such as notifications, whether data is properly saved locally and what happens in device power-saving mode.

“Without a professional USB hub - I reckon we would need at least another two engineers, just to deal with the USB connectivity issues we used to have to manage."
