Qualitest to provide BT with quality assurance during ESN and 5G push
Written by: Sam Fenwick | Published:

BT has renewed and expanded its contract with Qualitest, a software testing and quality assurance company. Qualitest will support the delivery of the backbone of BT’s digital infrastructure including the further development of its 5G offering.

Under the terms of the contract Qualitest will also support the delivery of product and services across BT’s entire network and further enhance the company’s Emergency Services Network (ESN) offering.

Qualitest has worked for 20 years with EE and its predecessor companies. Qualitest began its partnership with Orange, which merged with T-Mobile to become EE, who were acquired by BT in 2016. The scope of the new project covers testing aspects of BT's mobile network, supporting more than 30 million connections.

Jim Brooks, SVP, Telecom at Qualitest said, "We are proud of our close relationship with BT, which, through EE has been a cornerstone of our business for two decades. Our team successfully demonstrates Qualitest's value as a trusted partner, further expanding the remit of our engagement. We are excited to support BT in this next phase of digital growth and help them to continue to deliver the best network and service to ensure that customers are confident that their digital lives are in the safest pair of hands."

Lisa Lessels, quality assurance and integration director at BT said, "BT has re-selected Qualitest group for a two-year contract to provide mobile network testing to BT's Quality Assurance and Integration organisation, supporting more than 30 million connections. Qualitest was selected due to their position as a pure-play independent and focussed testing consultancy with a proven track record in providing value to BT."
