Anue Systems Joins Test Automation Alliance

Anue Systems, the industry leader in network emulation solutions, today announced their participation in the Test Automation Alliance (TAA). The alliance, initiated by Spirent Communications, is an ecosystem of best-in-class testing companies focused on enabling service providers and network equipment manufacturers (NEMS) to improve test automation productivity.

Anue's Network Emulators allow users to accurately and repeatedly recreate real world network conditions in the test lab. NEMS and service providers can quickly and easily test and validate the performance, scalability, and robustness of their products and infrastructure under a wide range of network conditions during the development and deployment process.

The TAA has successfully deployed the test lab Automation Continuum across a global network of seven fully integrated test Labs. The Automation Continuum is a truly open, plug and play framework created around service providers' and network equipment manufacturers' lab requirements, resources and restrictions.

"Nearly all test labs are currently facing the challenge of testing increasingly complex network configurations with greatly reduced resources. The TAA is designed to bring the best solutions from a range of companies to bear on this situation to increase productivity and accuracy and help companies deliver even better products and services," said Neil Anderson, Vice President of Global Services, Spirent Communications. "Anue Systems and their Network Emulator solutions provide a critical part of test automation and we welcome them to this collaboration."

"We have seen WAN emulation and test lab automation provide huge benefits to our customers in the form of faster time to market and reduced costs," said Hemi Thaker, president of Anue Systems. "Collaborating with the TAA will help us provide a tightly integrated total solution comprising of 'best in breed' products."

Using customizable test suites as well as network capture and playback capabilities, users can create multiple network profiles to emulate how their solution will perform under varying network conditions. The Anue Network emulator's hardware based solution provides unmatched accuracy and repeatability combined with an easy to use graphical interface.
