Released 6 months ago Itheon Networks Compact Network Emulator has achieved some major sales and increased sales leads. Also major review of the product requested by Techworld helped to cement the growth. Interestingly the product seemed to hit an accord within the industry.

Itheon Networks, the Networked Application Performance Lifecycle™ specialists, reported today that their recently released INE Compact has generated a record number of leads and caught the eye of the lab testers at Techworld, a major network technical publication who reviewed the product and gave it Recommended status.

INE Compact, Itheon Networks, small, silent, easy-to-use and cost effective network emulator is aimed at companies needing to replicate the network conditions applications are likely to encounter when running over WAN Networks. Since its launch in July it has sold strongly to companies in the finance, communication, defence and technology sectors.

"We are really excited by the level of interest generated by INE Compact, it shows the seriousness that is being taken by the market in testing applications in realistic network conditions before roll-out," said Frank Puranik, Itheon Networks Product Director. "We developed INE Compact in order to fill the gap between the low-end of the market where there are a number of cheap but not particularly user-friendly products and the top-of-the-range highly sophisticated but sometimes prohibitively expensive offerings. Our decision to produce a small, very easy-to-use desktop emulator that delivers the great majority of simulated network conditions application developers and testers are looking for has been clearly justified. The introduction of INE Compact also means that Itheon Networks now offers the most comprehensive range of network emulation products available from one supplier."

The enthusiasm for INE Compact is not just confined to user organisations. Techworld, the UK's infrastructure and networking knowledge centre recently conducted an independent review of INE Compact and awarded it Recommended status. The reviewer commented that "For most network emulation tasks, the INE compact is the one to look at," and concluded that it was "A nice addition to the lab of any IT person that wants to try stuff out in a sterile environment before doing it for real."

"We are also extremely pleased that the Techworld, as an independent and impartial organisation were impressed enough to recommend network emulator and describe it as the one to look at," said Frank Puranik.
