What is IoT Testing?

IoT testing is a type of testing to check IoT devices. Today there is an increasing need to deliver better and faster services. There is a huge demand to access, create, use, and share data from any device. The thrust is to provide greater insight and control, over various interconnected IoT devices. Hence, the IoT testing framework is important.

Types of Testing in IoT

Testing for IoT devices broadly revolves around Security, Analytics, Device, Networks, Processors, Operating Systems, Platforms and Standards.

Let's investigate the broad testing types

Usability Testing:

There are so many devices of different shape and form factors are used by the users. Moreover, the perception also varies from one user to another. That's why checking the usability of the system is very important in IoT testing.

Compatibility Testing:

There are lots of devices that can be connected through the IoT systems. These devices have varied software and hardware configuration. Therefore, a possible combination is huge. As a result, checking the compatibility in the IoT systems is important.

Reliability and Scalability Testing:

Reliability and Scalability are important for building an IoT test environment that involves the simulation of sensors by utilizing virtualization tools and technologies.

Data Integrity Testing:

It's important to check the Data integrity in IoT testing as it involves a large amount of data and its application.

Security testing:

In the IOT environment, there are many users who are accessing a massive amount of data. Thus, it is important to validate user via authentication, have data privacy controls as part of security testing.

Performance Testing:

Performance testing is important to create a strategic approach for developing and implementing an IOT testing plan.
