S3 Group (News - Alert) has partnered with Teleplan to provide various products and services for Sky Deutschland. These products and services include StormTest products from S3 Group, and they are expected to enhance the quality of experience for its subscribers.

StormTest Development Center seamlessly combines with head-end software to enable the full end-to-end validation of content delivery platforms, from play-out through to receiver.

This way, the product allows firmware and applications running on set-top-boxes, residential gateways, iPads, Connected TVs, laptops and additional devices to be installed rapidly and in a more dependable fashion.

The solution will be installed in Sky Deutschland in product support, the engineering and supply chain departments. Sky Deutschland expects to witness considerable quality enhancements and cost savings in the service being provided to its more than three million customers, by installing a single combined solution end-to-end across its operations.

Numerous StormTest Development Center and StormTest Decision Line configurations will be installed by S3 Group and Teleplan to provide the depth and breadth of testing needed.

“Closing the end-to-end loop from requirements in engineering through to the screening and repair process provides Sky Deutschland with a unique opportunity to significantly improve the quality of experience for its customers. Valuable data collected at each stage by StormTest will be shared across the engineering, product support and supply chain departments, which will provide deep insights into the performance of Sky's latest generation platforms and contribute to making future developments and processes more efficient," added Philip Brennan, vice president, TV Technology, S3 Group.

In February 2012, the company announced that Sequans Communications S.A has licensed its Power Management IP. S3 Group is a worldwide provider of mixed-signal, analog, RF and power management semiconductor IP solutions. These solutions have been custom designed for a Power Management Solution for Sequans by making use of IP from its portfolio.
