Under the partnership, devs can remotely test mobile apps on virtualized 2.5G, 3G, 4G and WiFi networks that exactly duplicate real-world bandwidth, latency, jitter and packet loss conditions.  This approach lets devs not simply test their local app on a device, but see how that app performs across various networks.

The partnership integrates Shunra’s NetworkCatcher and PerformanceSuite with Keynote DeviceAnywhere’s Test Center Enterprise (TCE) cloud-based solution.

Shunra’s NetworkCatcher captures mobile network conditions, virtualizes them in the test environment using PerformanceSuite, and then allows devs to analyze the performance of their apps, according to Shunra COO Bill Varga. For its part, Keynote DeviceAnywhere’s TCE cloud-based architecture lets companies remotely test mobile apps manually or on an automated basis behind the corporate firewall, according to Keynote DeviceAnywhere president Faraz Syed.

Keynote DeviceAnywhere’s TCE Cloud-Based, SaaS Architecture supports:

  • Interactive manual testing, test automation, and monitoring solutions to let companies speed testing of mobile apps and websites.
  • A rich set of planning, collaboration, management and reporting tools.
  • Always-available remote online access to popular mobile devices (Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7, and WebOS smartphones and tablets).
  • A globally accessible device bank saves significant cost and effort vs. establishing and managing mobile QA labs for distributed teams.
  • Test and monitor across multiple devices or test device-to-device interactions from any location in the world.
  • Online reporting (including video and screen capture) and collaboration enable efficient review and sharing with colleagues.
  • Built for on-demand use in our enterprise cloud environment as well as for private cloud deployments.

 
“Although Test Center Enterprise has always given access to real, networked devices, the integration with Shunra adds an important extra dimension to mobile app testing.  By using real mobile devices in a virtualized lab environment with the respective network conditions, users benefit from a more realistic and global view of app test results,” Syed said in a statement.

The Keynote DeviceAnywhere-Shunra partnership also delivers an effective and less time-consuming alternative to drive testing in the field, which means customers can capture better ROI than from testing, added Shunra COO Bill Varga.
