The only thing harder than building a WebRTC application is testing it.
All software needs to work on a variety of platforms, in different hardware and network configurations, and at various levels of user load. Testing a web or mobile video application is more complicated because it’s not as simple as a feature working or not. Video will behave differently across operating systems and browsers and you have multiple participants to handle. Bandwidth also impacts the experience significantly. And of course, you need to test the quality of the video itself.
Don’t leave the success of your real-time communications application to just anyone. Trust the experts at WebRTC.ventures to explore the inner workings of your application and identify potential break points before your users find it for you. We don’t have to build your application in order to help you test it!
Why choose WebRTC.ventures for testing?
We attach great importance to software testing – we’ve even dedicated a whole office to it in Panama City, Panama with a regularly updated device lab with a wide range of medium- and high-end Android and iOS cell phones, tablets, and computers with Windows and macOS operating systems.
Testing is not as simple as buying a single tool or adopting a single methodology. It requires layering a variety of techniques, as well as expertise that most teams don’t have. Our amazing QA team works with live video applications all the time and can provide the WebRTC-specific expertise to test any video application.
More than half of our software testers are ISTQB certified.
ISTQB is the leading global certification scheme in the field of software testing. It has given more than 1.1 million exams and issued more than 836,00 certifications in over 130 countries.
What questions can good testing answer?
- Does my application meet my performance standards?
- Does my application work across every browser?
- Does my application work well on mobile?
- How does my application behave in different bandwidths?
- How many video calls will this server configuration support?
- Will my application scale with me as my business grows?
What kind of testing does WebRTC.ventures offer?
Level 1: Manual Testing
Our manual testers have access to a lab of different mobile devices and computers so that they can test applications in a variety of different browsers and operating systems. We follow test scripts we develop with you. Manual testing is particularly important for WebRTC applications as the commonly used testing tools for regular web applications do not generally accommodate video call testing. Manual testing may be done independently or in parallel to the other testing layers.
Level 2: Exploratory and Use Cases
Level 3: Test Automation
Level 4: Load Testing and Advanced DevOps
Load testing is the only reliable way to know how far your application can scale. Our Level 4 Test Engineers provide a variety of DevOps consulting and load testing services to clients with the most demanding requirements for their production applications. These team members can assess your current architecture and recommend improvements to allow it to auto-scale as the number of users grows. To confirm system performance under load, they can also build on top of automation scripts like those developed by our Level 3 Test Engineers, and deploy those scripts to server farms to similar large numbers of calls against your application.
