T-Mobile USA, Inc. is an American mobile-network operator that provides wireless voice, messaging, and data services. The company has over 33.73 million customers and annual revenues of US $21.35 billion. Its nationwide network reaches 96% of Americans.

Business Need

For every new app or device, T-Mobile required testing of preloaded applications, a job originally staffed internally. But, as T-Mobile no longer had the budget to retain many of those contractor testing positions, the company chose to offload the highly variable work to a Vendor. As a result, Akvelon has been working with T-Mobile since July of 2011 in providing high caliber project testing. Akvelon’s efficiency and high-quality work has contributed greatly to T-Mobile, who will continue this work stream in the future
This was the best platform we have ever used.

Comments

As a result, Apache Cordova released statements praising our developers, regarding them as highly valuable resources.

  • “The commit history will say the same thing, but for those that like the high level, I have to give [Akvelon employee] a huge tip of the hat for his awesome contributions along the way. [Akvelon employee] is responsible for a LOT…”
  • “The majority of the effort has been done by [Akvelon employee] with tech support from the MSOpenTech team.”

Our developer put in a tremendous amount of work into WP8. He had already made numerous contributions to Apache Cordova for Windows Phone 7 (WP7), so he inevitably knew his way around Cordova.

Solution

Akvelon partnered with T-Mobile to provide an end-to-end mobile testing solution that is fast and flexible. Akvelon’s team designs a rigorous testing schedule for each new device or application, using a combination of manual and automated testing to maximize the team’s ability to find and report bugs, while also meeting tight release deadlines. Akvelon’s process includes:

  • Testing the full functionality of applications.
  • Testing of new versions of applications as they release across base-line devices.
  • Power and security testing to determine if applications are efficient with battery life and safe from malicious requests.

Moreover, Akvelon has been able to maintain a dedicated team of mobile application testers and project managers who interface directly with the client on a weekly basis and provide results, analysis, and recommendations to T-Mobile. Based on our recommendations, T-Mobile either approves or rejects various mobile applications from their production devices.
