    Accenture StormTest Decision Line

    The Set-Top Box (STB) has become a powerful and expensive consumer device, delivering video and interactive services to the home. Refurbished STBs can account for a significant proportion of deployed devices. The effective management of the after-market services for these assets has a major impact both on supply chain costs, and customer churn.

    Accenture StormTest Decision Line automates STB screening for returning devices. It uses advanced automation techniques to diagnose hardware faults and failures across cable, satellite and IPTV digital receivers. This ensures faulty STBs are not returned to the field, repair tasks are expedited, No Fault Found (NFF) devices are quickly returned to stock AND organizations have insights into the reliability of their STBs.
