Is Your Mobile Website the Boss of You? Keynote’s Advanced Mobile Monitoring Puts You Back in Control
When MITE 2 was released in November 2010 it was the first real-time desktop tool for the automated testing of mobile websites on the most popular smartphones on the market. MITE also became the self-scripting platform for MWP, Keynote’s solution for continuously monitoring the speed, availability, and quality of mobile websites from an extensive library of emulated mobile devices.
“Since the launch of MITE we have listened closely to the feedback of users to meet the fast-paced and increasing demands of the mobile performance market. We have added many advanced features, streamlined and refined the user interface and expanded the MITE and MWP library of devices to include the latest smartphones and tablets,” said Vik Chaudhary, vice president of product management and corporate development at Keynote.
Mr. Chaudhary continued, “Today’s advanced mobile websites rely on a smartphone’s ability to understand how to interpret, fetch and render content for a specific smartphone. We’re making sure mobile teams are not caught flatfooted by providing the industry’s most advanced tools for testing and monitoring mobile content.”
More on Features & Enhancements
The latest version of Keynote Mobile Web Perspective introduces a new, cost-effective way for customers to select the speed of the mobile network they wish to monitor on. With enhanced bandwidth simulation, customers can choose to monitor mobile sites over 2G, 3G or 4G. This enables performance analysts and Web operations teams to accurately measure the user experience of file downloads from a mobile phone. Use case examples include downloading applications, documents, software updates, music, and more, which are common functions in app stores, enterprises and entertainment sites. Users simply specify a mobile network speed they wish to emulate and MWP throttles the connection speed appropriately to provide an accurate view of how users of a mobile website will experience downloads and uploads. Users can learn very quickly if connection speeds or file sizes and types are causing network and file transfer problems. And MWP also continues to offer over the air (OTA) monitoring on live mobile operator networks for customers.
MITE and MWP support the industry’s leading device library including the latest models such as: Apple iPhone 4, Nokia N8, Motorola Droid Pro, Samsung Focus, Samsung Epic 4G, Palm Pre Plus and the HTC Incredible. They also support popular tablets such as the Apple iPad and Samsung Galaxy in the continually expanding tablet library.
Feature overview of Keynote MITE--
- An embedded WebKit browser engine used by all leading smartphone manufacturers, lets users interact with any mobile website and get the most accurate end user perspective.
- Access to the latest smartphone devices profiles, such as Apple iPhone 4, HTC Droid Incredible, Nokia N8 and BlackBerry Torch.
- Ability to customize the device library to expand upon the over 12,000 device profiles that come standard in MITE.
- Point-and-click scripting capabilities to automate mobile content testing. Mobile content developers can record a single test script on one device and then run it across any number of selected devices.
- An intuitive grading system that helps companies verify that a website is optimized for a given device by providing both a score and actionable recommendations to improve the quality, performance and compliance of the website with W3C’s mobile best practices.
- Ability to conduct over the air (OTA) testing simply by attaching an aircard locally or connecting remotely to operator networks around the world.
- Monitoring on-demand, around-the-clock, for any mobile content, applications and services on the Keynote global test and measurement network.
With the continued proliferation of newer and more powerful smartphones, developers, Web operations teams and QA testers are increasingly challenged to create and test Web content to ensure its continuous availability on devices with varying capabilities, form factors and screen sizes. Before MITE, these constituencies were limited to repurposed browser plug-ins, expensive rental options or maintaining their own mobile device libraries. The value of the latest enhancements to Keynote MITE extends far beyond just providing the most comprehensive number of device profiles. MITE also provides diagnostics that give users a detailed understanding of what is happening behind the scenes. For each page tested, MITE provides download times, redirects, over-sized objects, broken links, supported MIME types, syntax errors, compliance with W3C mobile best practices and much more. With MITE users can navigate their website and check links from the convenience of a single desktop application.
