Software issues caused by poor connection

December 03 10:00 2013 Print This Article

Most of phones, smartphones, tablets and personal computers are connected to the network. A lot of modern software products depend on data stored on servers. Proper operation of such applications depends on quality of connection.

Nowadays there are many networks; they may work with various speeds. Network connections can be fast and reliably as World Wide Web cable connections are. Network connection may also be slow and insecure as modern wireless connection often is. That is why it is wise to perform mobile testing, desktop testing or web site testing under different networking conditions.

Common Problems Caused by Slow and Insecure Connection:

  • the software product may operate slowly, with time lags;
  • sent messages may be lost or delivered partially;
  • it may take much time for a message to arrive from one device to another.

A software testing company notices that some developers got used to good reliable cable connection and do not provide applications with algorithms of handling poor connection and related errors.

Unfortunately at present we cannot always have fast and reliable network connection everywhere. But it is possible to design software products with well thought out errors handling.

One of the ways of handling insecure connection is making temporary copies of needed information on the device. But if the copied data got lost or became obsolete, the software will work improperly or shut down. There may be problems if much data must be uploaded. So, it is necessary to execute load testing and performance testing of such applications.

The data may also be stolen or lost while copping if security issues are not elaborated properly. That is why security testing is also essential.
