A mobile device lab is a physical location that hosts real mobile devices to be accessed by developers and QA teams to sufficiently and accurately test their mobile applications. A device lab can consist of 10 to 50 to hundreds of mobile devices depending on your needs. Device lab management (DLM) gives you a centralized location to oversee and run all the real devices in your device lab. A DLM provider can offer a more modern deployment strategy by offering ways to test remotely and in the cloud.
This guide aims to introduce and explain what Device Lab Management is and why mobile testers should be using it. It explores the benefits of leveraging Device Lab Management, and what you should look for when choosing a Device Lab Management provider -including a handy checklist to help you evaluate cloud providers.
