Title: REMOTE ACCESS OF CELLULAR COMMUNICATION DEVICES FOR SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING
Abstract:
A provider of a cellular communication network may maintain a cluster of test devices that are remotely accessible for software testing. Access to a test device may be by way of an Internet server and by way of an interface device that is connected to the test device by USB. The Internet server exposes a TCP port to which a development device may connect. The TCP port is logically connected, through the server computer and the interface device, to a logical control and diagnostic interface of the test device. As an example in the Android environment, the TCP port is logically connected through the server computer and through the interface device to an ADB (Android device bridge) interface of the test device. The server computer may be configured to provide access control and to selectively grant access to the test devices.
