In a world of increasingly complex rapidly changing mobile application development platforms, networks, and devices, HP is aiming to gain respect for the solidity of its testing solutions. In this regard, the company has just extended its mobile application testing platform to now include Shunra Network Virtualization.

Shunra describes itself as an authority on network virtualization, WAN emulation technology, and application performance engineering (APE).
In a related news announcement this month, HP confirmed that it had signed an agreement with the firm to directly sell Shunra Network Virtualization to extend HP Performance Center and HP LoadRunner performance testing solutions for mobile applications.
HP says that it can now enable developers to test application performance on mobile devices by "automating real-world mobile network" conditions for more precise and reliable mobile application performance testing.
"With mobile users' heightened sensitivities to application performance issues, as well as their ability to often provide instant feedback through online app stores, the stakes for businesses to succeed in the mobile space are higher than ever before," blogged Matthew Morgan, VP & GM of HP software cloud and hybrid IT.
"As you know, mobile application performance is heavily dependent on the capacity and speed of the mobile network. With the new solution, HP enables more precise and reliable mobile application performance testing. As a result, organizations can increase end-user satisfaction and consistent application performance in production by testing application performance in real-world network conditions prior to deployment."
