Anue Systems Delivers Network Playback Capability

Supports High Precision Circuit Emulation Testing at Full Line Rate

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - February 21, 2008) - Anue Systems, Inc., the global leader in Network Emulation, announces the availability of the advanced Network Playback feature for the GEM Ethernet Network Emulator. Using Network Playback customers can record and play back network scenarios from a complex multi-node network -- such as the Internet, mobile communications network, or corporate WAN.

Anue's Network Playback enables pre-deployment testing of applications or services under complex network conditions in order to detect any performance issues attributable to network synchronization. The ability to authentically replicate the real world network environment -- in a repeatable way -- is particularly critical for pre-deployment testing and validation of carrier-grade Timing-Over-Packet and Circuit Emulation equipment and services. Customers are able to significantly reduce downtime, user issues and support costs.

"The Network Playback feature has allowed my team to test network characteristics before deployment. What we saw when we tested with the Anue system would have easily caused us to suffer downtime which leads to losses. By conducting this kind of testing, we were able to avoid costly downtime," said a recent Network Playback customer.

GEM 3.1's Network Playback capability is unique in the Test & Measurement industry. Implemented on Anue Systems' patented GEM hardware platform, Network Playback provides the utmost in testing precision and repeatability -- at full line rates up to one Gbps.

"Network Playback enables network equipment manufacturers, carriers and service providers to conduct authentic and repeatable lab testing," said Jason Nutt, VP of Product Management at Anue Systems. "For the first time our customers can validate their timing over packet solutions under real world conditions by importing the delay and impairment characteristics from the live network to the GEM with packet level control and precision."

Anue Network Emulators are used in network test labs to recreate the effects of real world network impairments. Uses include pre-deployment testing of WAN acceleration solutions, voice & video applications, WAN 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 as expected once deployed.
