Irdeto has licensed the set-top box testing solution provided by the S3 Group.

It’s the first enterprise-wide licensing of S3 Group’s StormTest Development Center, which has been in use at Irdeto regional facilities for the past two years, and now has been rolled out throughout the security company’s global operation. StormTest will be used to provide end to end testing of featuresets on a variety of set-top boxes.

“StormTest Development Center was a natural choice for Irdeto. With our stringent requirements for security and reliability, it was important to us to choose a product that was as robust as our solution and scaled to handle multiple sites seamlessly,” said Rory O’Connor, vice president of services, Irdeto. “From support to services, the S3 Group team has been a true partner to work with throughout the ongoing deployment process.”

Ian Harris, director of product management, S3 Group added that Irdeto was easily able to integrate StormTest into its systems.

StormTest Development Center has been chosen by more than 20 of the world’s leading digital TV operators and vendors.
