TANDBERG is a leading global provider of telepresence, high-definition videoconferencing and mobile video products and services. Its mission is to change the way people communicate, with products that bring people together without the need to get into a car or take to the skies. TANDBERG support innovative ideas such as telemedicine and remote learning, and help companies reduce their carbon footprint.
TANDBERG has a Global R&D organisation, with two groups in the UK, developing the leading and cutting edge Video Conferencing HD architecture utilising true parallel processing super computer processing power. With dual headquarters in New York and Norway, the company provides sales, support and value-added services in more than 90 countries worldwide.
In Langley we develop High Definition Multipoint Conferencing Units (MCUs) for bridging multiple video calls into one conference. The TANDBERG Codian 4500 is unarguably the most powerful video conferencing bridge available in the world.
In Reading the team develops the TANDBERG Video Communication Server (VCS). This translates between different video call protocols, allowing the current generation of video phones to communicate to the latest products. It also provides a centralised address book to organise video calling and provides firewall traversal to extend these functions across the public Internet.
TANDBERG has always placed considerable emphasis on finding the very best graduates, believing that lack of commercial experience is no barrier to entering professional life and developing a successful career, as graduates who join TANDBERG rapidly become highly valuable members of the R&D team.
Test Development Engineers, TANDBERG Telecom UK Limited
An automated test infrastructure is at the heart of the software development process in Reading. This allows the evolving products to be continuously monitored and assists the team in meeting demanding quality and time targets. Test results are collectively monitored and issues promptly passed back to the relevant software engineer to address.
As a Development Test Engineer your task is to find ways to stress the product that the developers may not have considered. Then verify the quality of the software and undertake interoperability testing with other manufacturers’ products. Approximately 50% of a Tester’s time is spent identifying repetitive tests and designing/developing enhancements to automate these areas. This is one of the most satisfying parts of the role. With an ethos of ‘automate everything’ only about 20% of the role is still centred on manual test.
