Introducing Network Virtualization
Network Virtualization captures and emulates real-world network conditions, so you can test network performance to detect and remediate issues before application deployment.
By imposing network impairments and constraints on your testing environment, you can improve the accuracy of your application testing.
Emulate real-world network conditions including latency, packet loss, bandwidth limitation, and jitter.
Test application performance under varied, real-world network conditions to see how network performance affects transactions and response time.
Analyze performance results and view optimization recommendations for improving application performance.
Example: A server is located in New York. The server is accessed by users, who are located many miles away – in London. When users access the server, there is a delay due to network impairments and constraints that inevitably exist on an extended network, such as the one between New York and London.
Software updates are developed for the system, and are tested by the QA team based in New York. Because QA is located so close to the sever, network impairments in the testing environment are much less than those that exist in the "live" system, and QA results may therefore not be accurate.
