How Kobiton and NeoLoad can Provide Load Testing on Real Mobile Devices

Excellent user experience (UX) for applications has become more than essential, particularly when it comes to performance. Mobile users expect a better level of performance from mobile apps than they do from web apps. Furthermore, the mobile user experience is profoundly impacted by device characteristics and network quality, making it difficult for performance testers to accurately replicate bugs in production conditions with conventional testing tools and approaches


When it comes to simulating a high volume of simultaneous users hitting your application, it’s difficult to use real devices or emulators. Doing so would require acquiring hundreds or thousands of real devices or machines running emulators. Therefore NeoLoad and Kobiton have teamed up to deliver realistic tests by:

  • Generating 95 % of the load from NeoLoad by sending traffic on the protocol level
  • Run 5% of the load over real devices hosted by Kobiton to report the real UX


Neotys is a leading innovator in load testing & performance testing for Web and Mobile applications. It has nearly 15 years of development investment into NeoLoad – the performance testing platform designed to accelerate Agile and DevOps processes.
