Mobile Network Virtualisation
Mobile is an important customer communication channel and represents a significant competitive advantage in today’s always-on, always-connected world.
End-users lose their patience easily, especially if dealing with problematic interfaces. In order for your company to have a competitive advantage, you need to ensure that your mobile channels are designed for optimum usability.
Delays and usability issues can negatively impact your revenue, productivity, customer loyalty and brand image. Blue Turtle has partnered with HP to provide Mobile Network Virtualisation solutions that have been developed to assisting you in creating awesome user experiences. We bring you proven technology that can reduce the occurrence of performance incidents by more than 25%.
“HP Network Virtualization for Mobile” is the only network virtualisation solution designed specifically for the unique requirements of mobile app testing.
This field-proven HP solution reduces the risk of poor mobile performance and helps your organisation test, validate, and optimise the performance of your mobile apps before deployment.
Built on the HP Network Virtualisation engine, HP Network Virtualisation for Mobile bridges the gap between development and deployment by enabling your mobile application development team to fully and accurately assess the behaviour and impact of the network on mobile apps before they are introduced to end-users. By virtualising real-world mobile network conditions within testing environments, your test results are more reliably predictive of how an application will behave for end users.
Our solution allows tests to be managed and results analysed from any laptop or Wi-Fi-connected mobile device. The software can import real-world mobile network profiles captured by HP Network Capture or provided by the HP Network Virtualisation Library of mobile and broadband network conditions.
The robust analytic capabilities in HP Network Virtualisation for Mobile provide deep-dive root cause analysis of performance bottlenecks, a mobile performance scorecard, and automated optimisation recommendations that have been proven to improve mobile app performance by more than 40%.
Since over 70% of the performance of a mobile app is dependent on the network, your organisation must consider the effect of the mobile network on the end-user experience before an app is deployed. Every second of delay increases user-abandonment, sends traffic to competitive sites and applications, and decreases the likelihood those users will return.
Our solution allows you to test, validate, remediate, and achieve mobile app optimisation before deployment to verify that your back-end capacity and end-user experience requirements are met before deployment.
With the Mobile Network Virtualisation solutions, you can achieve the following:
- Discover and capture network conditions—including latency, bandwidth, packet loss, and jitter.
- Emulate production environments using real-world network conditions, and deliver accurate and repeatable results.
- Analyse results and automate code level optimization recommendations to mitigate the risk of production incidents.
HP Network Virtualisation for Mobile delivers capabilities designed to improve your organisation’s ability to create a reliable mobile app testing environment, analyse performance test results, and take immediate and effective action to both remediate problems and optimise mobile app performance. Below is a list of the benefits offered by HP Network Virtualisation for Mobile.
Since mobile network conditions are dynamic and vary by carrier, location and time of day, it is essential for testing environments to accurately recreate multiple mobile network scenarios in order to analyse app performance and determine how network conditions affect different mobile users. The multi-flow capability in HP Network Virtualisation for Mobile allows you to define a mobile test scenario that simultaneously emulates multiple user locations, each with its own unique set of virtualised mobile network conditions.
Decode HLS streams
Delivering streaming video across mobile networks is challenging because constantly changing conditions can impact the user-experience. As a result, organizations are turning to HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), which supports multiple alternate streams to be delivered at different bit rates and enables client software to intelligently switch streams based on changes in network
bandwidth. HP Network Virtualisation for Mobile can decode and analyze HLS streams as a standard part of its HTTP analysis capabilities.
HP Application Performance Analytics
As a standalone analysis engine, HP Application Performance Analytics allows your testers to analyse all HP Network Virtualisation files. In addition, HP Application Performance Analytics supports standard PCAP files, extending deep-dive analysis capabilities to those PCAP files generated by other applications.
New reports that detail resource breakdown, endpoint latencies, and analysis of secure HTTP communications, provide insight into latency for each host and “top-talker,” so your testers can now verify that tests are routed correctly and ensure they are aware of all resources or hosts.
Emulation control, packet capture, and statistics can be managed and viewed via a REST- based API and CLI. Access to HP Network Virtualisation for Mobile is not restricted to a single workstation as it is specifically designed to operate in a shared testing environment, with multiple users accessing the technology at different times.
