Hosted cloud devices

Extend your lab to include real devices hosted privately in the cloud by StormRunner Functional. This enables you to interact with a larger selection of devices and achieve maximal device coverage, without having to deal with procuring, configuring, and maintaining all the devices needed for testing. For more details, see Administration settings.

Service Virtualization (SV) integration (early access)

Run bluetooth, near-field communication (NFC), & REST simulations on your mobile devices. The integration is available as early access and is currently only supported with LeanFT.

When testing with UFT Developer, use the SV lab server embedded in Mobile Center to record tests including SV actions (service activation and scenario selection) as test steps, using scenarios created from already-performed SV learning sessions.
