Expertise in QA and IoT Testing Services
Internet of Things Testing (IoT) is the fastest growing sector in the Testing World. According to a report from McKinsey, by 2020 there will be over 30 M devices through IoT (Internet of Things). The IoT is essentially a web of physical objects that are embedded with sensors; various software that interact with each other by collecting and exchanging data. For over two decades, organizations and businesses have been adopting IoT solutions to offer benefits like cost optimization, improved efficiency and enhanced user experience, but in the last decade or so, the innovative onslaught of IoT has come to the forefront with things like self-driving cars, home automation solutions, smart medical devices, etc. catching the attention of end users.
In terms of software testing requirements, the Internet of Things brings many new things to the table, including a major emphasis on unusual device types, such as home appliances, thermostat interfaces, and watch sensors. The unique characteristics and complex architecture of IoT Systems call for various type of IoT testing to check IoT devices. Hence, QA teams must carefully define a test strategy to effectively meet the quality standards of these innovative products.

Usability and User experience is an important part of any testing. Internet of Things (IoT) testing is no exception since it involves the use of a number of devices of different shape and screen size, resolution and OS version that is used by the end users. Enticesoft has a proprietary checklist to perform UI / UX testing.
There could be hundreds of devices connected through the IoT system each carrying varied software and hardware configuration making the possible combinations of software & hardware, huge. It is thus important to ensure that these devices, sensors and IoT devices are compatible with each other.
Data Integrity Testing
It’s important to check the Data integrity in the Internet of Things (IoT) Testing as it involves a large amount of data and its application. The devices interact with each other and there is data exchange. Format of data and the sanctity of data need to be tested. For e.g. the data could be from sensors received via TCP / IP protocol over MQTT or
Protocol and Device Interoperability Testing
This involves assessing the ability to seamlessly interoperate devices and protocols across different standards & specifications. This testing is important as IoT devices interact and exchange a lot of data with each other using various protocols
In the IoT environment, there are many users accessing a massive amount of data. Thus, it is important to validate the user via authentication, have data privacy controls as part of security testing. Encryption and decryption and device identity authentication are key
Performance testing is important to create a strategic approach for developing and implementing an IoT testing strategy. Load testing under the extremes of data volume and complex aspects like timing analysis and velocity have to be taken into consideration.
Reliability and Scalability Testing
Reliability and Scalability are important for building an Internet of Things (IoT) test environment which involves simulation of sensors by utilizing virtualization tools and technologies.
