AstroFarm: The Answer to Network Latency Challenges in Testing

Jul 11, 2023 | 42Gears Team

A sudden network slowdown is one of the most frustrating experiences you can encounter while testing an application. Slow networks can have a negative impact, especially when you are in the midst of a crucial test case or racing against the clock to complete your test sprint. But when it comes to virtually testing mobile apps on a device farm, network latency plays a crucial role.  

What is Network Latency?

Network latency is the time (in milliseconds) taken for data or a request to go from the source to the destination. In other words, this can be defined by the time it takes for a request to travel from a sender to a  receiver and for the receiver to process that request. While achieving zero latency may not be possible, the closer it approaches zero, the more optimal your testing experience will be. 

The Impact of Network Latency on Your Testing Experience

With high-speed internet and WiFi widely available, users expect app experiences with zero lags. That’s why in application testing, low network latency is a critical factor. Firstly, it is important to test your applications under conditions that closely resemble real-world usage. Secondly, by conducting tests with low latency, you can proactively identify and address potential bottlenecks that could negatively impact system performance, ensuring a seamless and satisfactory user journey.

Smaller organizations can easily achieve lower latency for their testing and QA teams due to their smaller network size. However, as your network expands and remote testing teams grow, latency can become a challenging aspect of your testing process. It can result in delays and slower time-to-market for your apps. While various methods can improve network latency, opting for a mobile app testing platform that provides low network latency will be a valuable advantage for your team. This proactive approach ensures that potential latency issues are addressed effectively right from the start.
