Welwyn Garden City, UK and Nevada, USA (PRWEB) October 18, 2007
Itheon Networks, the Networked Application Performance Lifecycle™ specialists, announced a major upgrade to its popular Itheon Network Emulator for Windows (INE for Windows), a Windows-based software solution that allows applications running on Windows systems to experience realistic Wide Area, Wireless, GPRS, 3G, Satellite etc. conditions without leaving the LAN.
This new upgrade offers full support of the Microsoft Vista platform and also now offers advanced scripting of the network conditions, altering them dynamically, as happens in real world networks.
"Giving full support for INE for Windows on Vista is very important as there is no doubt that this will become the "standard" operating system for both corporate and home users, and organisations are now developing and testing their software for Vista. They'll certainly want to ensure their new Vista software is going to perform properly in WAN, Wireless, Satellite and other non-LAN networks," said Frank Puranik, Itheon Networks Product Director.
INE for Windows was initially developed on Windows XP with static network scenarios. Frank goes on to say, "the move to dynamic scenarios was next on our agenda as it increases the realism of the network conditions by varying them as they would naturally vary in real real-world networks."
INE for Windows is ideal for checking how well an application will perform in non-LAN environments. INE for Windows installs onto a Windows, XP, Vista or Windows Server system and simulates (emulates) a variety of wide area network conditions (WAN, Wireless LAN, 3G, Satellite etc.) enabling developers, testers and users to experience how application will perform when rolled out into the final production environment.
INE for Windows allows users to recreate all the major conditions that can affect applications in the network such as latency (delay), jitter, available bandwidth, packet loss/error/reordering etc, and can be controlled asymmetrically or symmetrically.
INE for Windows is aimed at the Network Specialist, Professional Developer, Tester or IT Specialist looking for a cost effective, simple to use Network Emulator for testing how their application(s) perform between individual workstations and servers. It may be the first step, before conducting a full multi-user, multi-site test for which the INE Enterprise is recommended.
