Mobile Labs Reaches New Cloud Milestone


, the leading supplier of customer-installed mobile device
clouds to the Global 2000, announces its new hosted device cloud has
reached an important milestone, now containing more than 100 active
smartphones and tablets. Hosted by the company's flagship product,
deviceConnect™, devices in the Mobile Labs data center join more than
2,000 mobile devices customers have deployed worldwide on their premises
for cloud-based mobile development and testing.

"2018 has seen dramatic growth in customer demand for high-performing
access to real mobile devices in the cloud," said Mobile Labs President
and CEO Dan McFall, "and we are seeing that demand rise in three models,
on-premises only, hosted only, and a hybrid featuring both." Many
customers are using the hosting center, McFall noted, to extend
deviceConnect for on-demand capacity during peak need periods.

The Mobile Labs hosted
of deviceConnect offers all key device-sharing capabilities
including high-performing manual testing, "instant-on," pre-installed
Appium automation scripting that delivers large capacity with ease of
use, tools to speed script development, assistance with iOS
provisioning, device management, scheduling, user management, mobile app
management and versioning, and DevOps integration for continuous
integration and continuous testing. deviceConnect also integrates an
industry-leading number of third-party testing and development tools
through its deviceBridge™ feature that gives
device cloud access to tools
that otherwise have none.

"We anticipate even more rapid adoption of our hosted cloud in the
remainder of 2018," said McFall. "Customers are increasing both the size
and number of their mobility projects and are finding the sharing,
management, and automation capabilities of a device cloud more and more
beneficial for speeding their projects to market."
