Anue Systems Ships GEM 3.1 Network Emulator

Enables Customers to Capture/Replay Network Traffic at Full Line Rate

RENO, NV--(Marketwire - November 13, 2007) - Anue Systems, Inc., the global leader in Network Emulation, has released version 3.1 of its GEM Network Emulator at Super Computing 07 today in Reno, Nevada. The 3.1 upgrade includes several enhancements, including the unique capability to Capture and Replay network traffic in-line at full line rates up to 1 Gigabit per second.

The Capture/Replay functions can be automatically triggered by selected events or payload content, and can be performed on the entire data flow or selectively filtered network traffic. GEM 3.1's Capture/Replay capability is particularly useful for companies evaluating or deploying WAN Acceleration systems, or complex Enterprise environments with network applications, IPTV, video conferencing and/or VoIP.

"The GEM Network Emulator is the only system available which can deliver the performance and memory depth we need for our lab testing," said Dr. Paul Langner, Director of Systems and Validation Engineering at Aquantia. "The new Capture/Replay functions provide the ability to record and replay network traffic in real-time at full speed -- significantly enhancing network troubleshooting and testing productivity."

GEM 3.1 also includes a new Accumulation and Burst capability which allows testers to emulate the data flow irregularities resulting from router buffering. Additional GEM 3.1 features include improved support for international standards network models (TIA-921 and ITU-T G.1050), enhancements to Router Mode (to emulate complex multi-node networks), and improvements to the GEM graphical user interface.

"Network emulators are indispensable tools for enterprise companies testing WAN applications, as well as network equipment manufacturers and service providers," said Jessy Cavazos, Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager. "GEM 3.1 with Capture/Replay is an important advancement in pre-deployment network application performance testing, and reinforces Anue Systems' market position in network test equipment."

Anue Systems Network Emulators are used in network test labs to recreate the effects of real-world network impairments. Typical uses include pre-deployment testing of WAN acceleration solutions, voice & video applications, disaster recovery plans and server migration scenarios. Anue Systems Network Emulators introduce network delays, bandwidth constraints, packet and bit errors, and other network impairments during network application performance testing and system validation -- enabling customers to ensure their applications, systems and services will perform effectively when deployed on production networks.
