New iTrinegy network simulation software converts your PC/laptop into a Network Emulator

Share Article

New network simulation software tests application performance in the wide area or remote networks prior to application rollout all from a desktop or laptop.

iTrinegy, the Networked Application Performance Lifecycle™ experts, today launched a new 2-port version of its INE for Windows network simulation software. The new INE for Windows-2P network emulator software enables developers and testers to check, from the desktop, how applications perform in wide area, remote or wireless network conditions. INE for Windows-2P software can be installed on a suitably configured dedicated Windows PC, laptop, workstation or server in order to convert it into simple-to-use 2 Port inline network emulator.

With standard TCP-IP applications like http (web), ftp, mail and MS networks, as well as time-sensitive ones such as VoIP (Voice over IP), streaming media and video-on-demand where there is a requirement for high Quality of Service (QoS), it is essential to know that these applications are going to perform properly over target networks. INE for Windows-2P allows users to see how characteristics such as bandwidth, latency/delay, jitter and packet loss can impact application performance.

"The real plus with our new INE for Windows-2P software is that it is quick to install and so simple to use that you can be creating realistic network environments in a few minutes", explains Frank Puranik, Product Director, iTrinegy. "Our new 2-P Inline emulator software allows users to emulate a wide range of networks (WAN, Wireless, Satellite, 3G/GPRS etc.) in a safe and controlled environment so that you can understand how applications will behave before actually rolling them out into the final production environment."

INE for Windows-2P software is controlled by simply moving sliders on the screen GUI, allowing users to control the key network characteristics that could impact applications, together with the capability of applying selective impairments via Filters (Ports / Protocols / IP address) and to set asymmetric network links. iTrinegy has also provided a good number of pre-defined network scenarios which can be selected from either a drop-down menu or via iTrinegy's hosted scenario server. The software can also be controlled with an XML script, to allow for extended and unattended testing, where the network conditions can be changed over time to represent a more realistic replication of conditions for testing.

"Although iTrinegy already offers one of the most comprehensive range of network emulators available we recognized that some organizations, rather than introducing third party appliances, prefer to retain full control over the hardware running on site", explains Frank. "By enabling them to install our software on their own machines, they can achieve this and still have the ability to conduct comprehensive application testing from the comfort of their desks..

INE for Windows-2P allows users to recreate all the major conditions that can affect applications in the network such as Link Speed, e.g. T1, E1, Modem, (A)DSL, GPRS, 3G, WiMAX, Satellite, latency (delay), jitter, available bandwidth, packet loss/error/reordering etc, and can be controlled asymmetrically or symmetrically.

INE for Windows-2P is aimed at anyone interested in the behaviour of their applications including: Network Specialists, Professional Application Developers, and Testers. The INE for Windows software solution is part of a suite of products that help de-risk and cut down the cost of application rollouts.

iTrinegy is offering a free trial of INE for Windows-2P and you can request a copy by emailing info@itrinegy.com or visiting http://www.itrinegy.com.
