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.
Eliminates False NFF
Faulty units are caught and prevented from being redeployed in the field
More faults detected compared to manual testing
Single test station can typically screen 500 units per 8 hour shift
x16 higher throughput compared to manual process
