STB Auto Test
In order to guarantee the reliability of IPTV service, every upgrade of set-top box and revision of EPG requires a test of service availability, which is a simple and repeated but huge work and consumes a lot of time and energy of operation and maintenance units。
System Architecture Basic Principle Core Competence Context of Use System UI Device Pictures
Systen Architecture: three-tier architectures—Hardware acquisition、service acquisition、Context of Use
The video content screen is directly obtained from THE HDMI output of the STB by using a real STB, and the infrared control of the STB is carried out by simulating the actual operation of the user, so as to completely restore the user's real experience and realize the test of the set-top box boot/live broadcast/on-demand /EPG.
Basic Principle—The Principle of Itest’s STB Auto Test is completely similar to that of manual testing
The test process is shown in figure.The test environment consists of TV, remote control, STB and home gateway.The TV and the STB are connected with a video line and an audio line, and the connection between the STB and the home gateway is an Internet line. The testers conduct regression tests through the remote control operation.
Core Competence------Automatic dialing and testing is carried out through remote control script. The script is formulated once and is effective for a long time
Automatic test setting and result output: automatic test setting is carried out through script of remote control, and the script is formulated once, which is effective for a long time.Automatic output of test results to avoid human factors
Context of Use—It can be used for STB version testing, delivery sampling testing, upgrade verification, long stability testing and other scenarios
delivery sampling testing:Improve the terminal arrival test efficiency of branch company, and liberate the testing personnel of branch company
upgrade verification:Solve the problem of cutover in the early morning for first-line operation and maintenance personnel, and reduce the pressure of first-line operation and maintenance.
long stability testing:Improve the testing efficiency of STB stability.
System UI—STB Auto Test UI
Remote control: the platform can be remotely controlled by infrared
Test scenario: Test all the built-in scripts in the scenario
Scheme scheduling: Support multiple set-top boxes to issue tasks simultaneously
Function verification track: Supports multiple set-top boxes to issue tasks simultaneously
Test results: Test scenario data is summarized in one table
Statistics: statistics of all cities and set-top box pass rate ranking
