Westermo a un fort engagement pour le développement de nos propres solutions de données industrielle, d'où un investissement considérable dans notre département recherche et développement. L'année dernière, 13% de notre chiffre d'affaire a été consacré à la recherche et développement nous permettant ainsi d'avoir de construire de fortes relations avec les principaux fournisseurs de composants et de continuer l'amélioration de notre puissant système d'exploitation WeOS.
Avec la fiabilité si critique dans nos marchés clés, nous avons fortement progressé pour la validation technique de nos produits. Notre WeOS subi des tests automatisés 24/24 h ainsi que des tests de regéression pour vérifier la compatibilité avec nos anciennes plateformes.
Westermo’s software testing strategy is vital in ensuring that Westermo can deliver the best and most reliable software for our products. Our dedicated team is committed to deliver the world’s most robust networks and this ambition is attracting attention from industrial companies and organizations from around the world. Westermo in taking the lead in software quality assurance for industrial network solutions.
Having a range of networking devices powered by the same software, WeOS, and unique testing processes developed and performed at the company’s testing facilities in Sweden gives Westermo a major advantage over other manufacturers.
This has allowed Westermo to create a specific test framework for WeOS, which enables all resources to be concentrated on that software. The test framework has been developed over many years and is now in daily operation within Westermo's software testing laboratory. When features and functionality is added to the WeOS software, new automated tests are developed and these are executed every day, resulting in millions of completed tests.
The extensive software testing processes have been developed to identify any possible quality issues, which will reduce the risk to absolute minimum ofreleasing software with any quality issues to the market.
Test framework example
To achieve maximum authenticity, all tests are performed on the final product configured as it would if it was installed in a real a customer application.
For example, a test of a firewall may consist of three products. The outside node (router 1) trying to communicate through the firewall, the firewall node (router 2) blocking thecommunication, and the inside node (router 3) which is being protected. The test framework will first configure the nodesand then hand over control to the test case for execution.
In this test case there might be 4 steps:
