Shenick’s diversifEye and Anagran Boost Network Performance and Quality

Shenick Network Systems, provider of per-flow IP communications test and monitoring systems, announced that its award-winning diversifEye(TM) is helping Anagran successfully test and confirm its ability to eliminate and resolve network congestion to enable video, voice, data and wireless applications flow flawlessly over converged IP networks. diversifEye generates stateful real-time application flows on a per-client basis to enable Anagran to develop, test and validate its flow-based traffic management and control for end user quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE).

By generating stateful application flows on a per-flow, per-client basis for functionality and QoS testing, Anagran has ensured that its Fast Flow Technology(TM) enables service and network providers to free up network capacity, save on transmission capacity costs and deliver ultimate quality of service and experience for every user, regardless of how busy the network. Shenick's TCP-based stateful flows emulate real world clients to show how Anagran ensures smooth TCP traffic flow, as each emulated client is measured in real time.

"Shenick's scaleable flow-based test and verification technology has proven to be a vital component in aiding Anagran to test the efficacy of our products in eliminating the potentially crippling effects of traffic congestion," said John Harper, vice president engineering, Anagran. "Shenick's per-client, per-flow architecture is impressive because it generates and measures in real time, highly scalable, stateful TCP-aware application flows that are as real as the real world and not just packets passing through the network. This helps us to get a true snapshot of how well our products ease congestion in real world environments."

"Network specialists choose Shenick when dealing with really complex networks where key infrastructure products have to work seamlessly and not impact any traffic or end user QoE," said Robert Winters, chief marketing officer, Shenick Network Systems. "Shenick generates application flows that emulate real world situations to enable leading edge, high speed products such as Anagran's FR-1000 to monitor, not only the flow of applications, but the impact right down to an individual user basis in real time - no other vendor can provide that level of reality."

Shenick's diversifEye is used by the majority of network traffic management providers in the market. Shenick's TCP implementation is perfect for emulating real clients and provides the ability to build, test and measure millions of individual application flows. Service providers and network operators use Shenick for traffic shaping, traffic control and Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), ultimately enabling them to guarantee QoS, QoE and free up extra network capacity.
