LONDON and BOSTON, April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Simplifies time-based application performance testing over networks
iTrinegy, specialists in mitigating risk associated with application performance over networks, today announced general availability of their NE-ONE Version 3 Network Emulator. This latest version incorporates the new Network Scenario Builder. This capability makes it easy to test applications in varying network types and conditions over time. NE-ONE V3 is available in both hardware and virtual (NFV) appliance platforms.
Adopting an intuitive "Drag & Drop" approach, the Network Scenario Builder allows users to rapidly create a chronological network experience by simply combining multiple network types and conditions running over a graphically represented timeline. The realism of these test scenarios is further enhanced by selecting from intelligent built-in transitions between each network segment to fully represent what happens in the real world.
NE-ONE's Scenario Builder comes with a library of example network experiences such as variable mobile network experienced on various journeys and network type changes such as mobile to WiFi. These examples include LAN, WAN, Internet and Satellite network scenarios which provide a realistic representation of what can happen to the network conditions when a user's location and/or network conditions alter.
An example of how the Network Scenario Builder can be used is to mimic a journey where the mobile device is first connected to the user's home WiFi, transitions to a 3G mobile connect, then to a 4G mobile connection before ultimately connecting through to the office WiFi.
Just like a video player, the Network Scenario Builder includes the ability to start & stop the timeline playback, speed it up or slow it down and set up repeat play to meet your particular testing requirements.
"When we first launched the NE-ONE range back in 2015, our prime aim was to develop a range of network emulators that greatly simplified the setting up and running of a real-world test network, even with negligible network knowledge", explains Frank Puranik, iTrinegy Product Director. "The NE-ONE design removed the need to learn a complex tool with cumbersome tabular interfaces and scripting. Customers have endorsed this approach by 'voting with their orders'."
"We have now extended this design ethos to simplify the significant challenges of building a test scenario of changing networks and network conditions over time. Until now, the industry could only deliver this capability by requiring users to create scripts. The NE-ONE Scenario Builder allows the user to easily create these varying network conditions by dragging and dropping network elements into the timeline. This enables testing of application performance over real-world networks including Mobile Networks, Cloud, Satellite, SD-WAN, the Internet and IoT", continues Frank.
In addition to the Network Scenario Builder, the new NE-ONE versions offer further enhancements and features, particularly applicable for more advanced users, including a portfolio of over 50 pre-installed network impairments.
About the NE-ONE Range
The NE-ONE Network Emulator range comprises three hardware appliances (NE-ONE Model 5, 10 & 20) and three virtual (VMware-certified) appliances (NE-ONE Model 1, 5 & 10) offering 2 or 4 ports with link speeds from 50Mbps to 1Gbps, depending on model. Customers have the added assurance that as their requirements change the NE-ONE hardware and virtual versions can be upgraded across the range simply by purchasing a new license key.
iTrinegy offers solutions for de-risking the deployment of applications into real-world networks, with a suite of products that help mitigate the costs associated with poor application performance including Loss of Revenue, Reputational Damage, Remedial Costs and resource Impact.
iTrinegy is trusted by governments, military organizations and enterprises across the globe including Alcatel, Aviva, BT, Boeing, Cisco, Fidelity Worldwide Investments, IBM, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, National Australia Bank, Raytheon, Thomson Reuters, Salesforce and Starbucks.
