British Airways picks iTrinegy network emulation technology for its 'Skylab' hub

Nov 09, 2012 (AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION via COMTEX) -- British Airways said it has selected Cambridge, UK-based network performance technology firm iTrinegy's network emulation technology for their 'Skylab', a major hub for testing all their back-office and front-end networked applications.

According to the airline, 'Skylab' is the responsibility of the Networks Team based at British Airway's main offices in Waterside, UK.

BA said that the hub is meant to ensure that things run smoothly, considering the heavy load of business processes such as flight preparedness, aircraft readiness, flight load control, baggage protections, etc., being delivered over the British Airways data network.

The airline said it purchased iTrinegy's INE LCD network emulator to replicate the network and all the associated network conditions.

iTrinegy said its INE LCD Network Emulator is a portable appliance that is well suited to this type of task as it enables the user to see how an application or device will work in a realistic replication of environments such as WAN, Cloud, Mobile, Wireless and Satellite networks etc., prior to actual deployment.

Its ability to mimic characteristics such restricted bandwidth, link speed, latencies, jitter and packet loss etc. means that the user will be able to quickly identify how these factors can affect application behaviour.
