Shunra Software

Shunra VE

Flexibility and ease-of-use are two traits that give any product a strong lead over the competition, which is why our judges gave Shunra VE, a virtual network environment for pre-deployment lab testing, top honors in the Quality Assurance category.

Shunra VEs interface for testing application and network equipment performance under a wide variety of network impairments mirrors the look and feel of running in a real production environment throughout the development lifecycle. Users gain a comprehensive understanding of the impact that the network and applications have on each others performance and on remote users experiences. As a result, production-related problems can be uncovered and resolved before rollout.

Our judges also noted Shunra VEs wide range of graphically rich reports and drill down analysis capabilities. These help users isolate and resolve the root causes of network and application problems early and determine whether any modifications to the application, network or infrastructure are needed. Users get the information they need to make informed decisions and ensure service levels to remote users.

The Shunra VE is a high performance network appliance that functions as a bridge or router. We like that it changes the speed at which network traffic travels across the local area network, exposing data packets to the same impairments-such as latency, jitter, bandwidth, congestion, packet loss - to which they would be subjected to on the wide area network.
