iTrinegy’s Network Emulation for Windows (INE) Tests Application Resilience for Greater London Authority

Cambridge, England and RENO,Nevada (PRNewswire)The GLA is a unique organisation that has a strategic citywide focus. With a need to be accessible to millions of Londoners, achieving good application performance levels is given high priority. To achieve this goal, the IT department has rigorous policies to conduct performance tests on all their web-based applications, as well as those running on other network systems/applications (Legacy Client/Server, Citrix, and VoIP etc.).Brian Arnold, a specialist Systems Integration Engineer for the GLA wanted to make sure that all their applications would work wherever necessary. “These applications needed to work in a variety of different network environments (WAN, Wi-Fi, 3G, etc). To understand the impact on our end users, we made the decision that we that needed to test our applications and systems in controlled and repeatable replications of these environments.”
The GLA chose iTrinegy’s INE for Windows as it’s a simple-to-use network emulator that installs onto a Windows XP/Vista/7 or Windows Server system and allow some or all of the applications running on a Windows system to “experience” realistic external network conditions (WLAN, WAN, Satellite etc.) when accessing the Local Area Network (LAN). Parameters that can be set include bandwidth, loss, latency/delay and jitter as well as the creation of asymmetric links.
Having previously measured and profiled the GLA’s existing network, Brian used INE for Windows to replicate the network characteristics – restricted bandwidth, delay, loss etc- of the network. This enabled Brian to replicate the different network environment profiles for end-user experience and performance testing. Brian “Having started by investigating the performance of one our core applications, a contact directory, across the internal Wi-Fi (a 802.11n network accessible throughout City Hall for Hot-Desking and meeting room use by mobile devices) I was able to see how the application was performing.”
