This OEM agreement is further evidence that considering network conditions, particularly last mile conditions, is critical to ensuring end user experience.
Philadelphia (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
Shunra Software, the industry-recognized authority in network virtualization and application performance engineering, today announced that its network virtualization capabilities will be incorporated into Perfecto Mobile’s MobileCloud Performance solution, announced earlier today. The end-to-end mobile testing solution provides the only hosted environment for remote manual testing, functional automation testing and performance testing of mobile applications on real devices with real network conditions.
“Mobile apps too often fail to meet user’s performance expectations,” said Bill Varga, Shunra COO. “This results in lost revenue, decreased productivity and brand damage, all of which could be avoided with more accurate and reliable testing. This OEM agreement is further evidence that considering network conditions, particularly last mile conditions, is critical to ensuring end user experience. Incorporating Shunra’s network virtualization capabilities enables Perfecto Mobile to deliver a mobile app testing environment on real mobile devices that can precisely emulate the production network conditions that most impact app performance, making test results highly reliable.”
MobileCloud Performance users can access real devices for their mobile app testing requirements and virtualize production network conditions, such as bandwidth, latency, jitter and packet loss, in order to reliably understand the impact of the mobile network on user experience. With Shunra’s network virtualization capabilities embedded in their solution, developers and testers can:
- Emulate different end user locations and network conditions in order to validate transaction response times before deployment;
- Aggregate multiple test results into a single database for location-specific performance analysis;
- Extend functional testing without the need to write additional scripts;
- Produce packet capture files that can be used in HP LoadRunner to automate mobile app script generation; and
- Automate performance testing, validation and optimization efforts before deploying to production.
“Perfecto Mobile is pleased to partner with the recognized expert in application performance testing,” said Eran Yaniv, Perfecto Mobile CEO. “As our customers continue to develop and deploy mobile apps and services, they are able to speed time-to-market by accessing the latest mobile handsets and tablets via the Internet. Our partnership with Shunra enables us to provide our customers with a full continuum of performance engineering technology, providing them with even greater confidence in the user experience they are delivering.”
The agreement equips MobileCloud Performance with network capture and virtualization capabilities, access to a global library of mobile network conditions, and enhanced analysis capabilities. Shunra’s embedded analytics and optimization capabilities also extend Perfecto Mobile’s reporting with:
- Comprehensive performance test analysis reports that include location-specific performance information, automatic identification of poorly performing business transactions and root cause performance issue information;
- A performance scorecard that automatically grades application performance and provides optimization suggestions that have been shown to improve performance by over 40%.
