SAN MATEO, USA: Keynote Systems subsidiary, Keynote DeviceAnywhere, the global leader in mobile application lifecycle management (mobile ALM), and Shunra Software, the industry-recognized authority in network virtualization and application performance engineering, have jointly announced a partnership for mobile application testing that gives developers the ability to test apps and websites on remotely-accessible devices using real-world mobile network conditions.
Users of Keynote DeviceAnywhere and Shunra will now be able to remotely test mobile apps on virtualized 2.5G, 3G, 4G and WiFi networks that precisely emulate real-world bandwidth, latency, jitter and packet loss conditions. This allows mobile app developers to simulate visits to every type of location and test the performance of the app under those different network scenarios.
The partnership between Keynote DeviceAnywhere and Shunra represents the first functional and performance testing integration released in support of Shunra’s previously announced open mobile app performance platform. The integration brings together Shunra's NetworkCatcher and PerformanceSuite with Keynote DeviceAnywhere's Test Center Enterprise solution.
NetworkCatcher captures mobile network conditions while PerformanceSuite allows those network conditions to be virtualized in the test environment and app performance analyzed. Keynote DeviceAnywhere’s Test Center Enterprise is the industry-standard enterprise-class system for remotely testing mobile apps on a manual or automated basis behind the corporate firewall.
