WAN emulation and application testing tools
Linktropy Emulators Provide Affordable Network Emulation for Accurate, Repeatable Performance Testing at Speeds up to 1 Gbps
Apposite WAN emulators simulate bandwidth, latency, jitter, loss, congestion, and other important network impairments to test the performance of applications under a spectrum of real-world conditions.
Linktropy boxes simulate a single link through each pair of interfaces, so if you need to emulate a single set of conditions between two networks, Linktropy is the product for you. To model complex network topologies, run multiple concurrent tests, or emulate links of greater than 1 Gbps, select the Netropy network emulator.
The Linktropy Mini-G is a basic, portable WAN emulator capable of simulating links up to 1 Gbps at an unbeatable price, designed for application development and customer demonstrations of networking products.
The Linktropy Mini-G emulates WAN conditions of bandwidth, latency, and loss separately in each direction up to 1 Gbps. Its small size and light weight make it easy to carry or install on a desktop, while its fanless design and solid-state storage offer silent operation with high reliability.
An intuitive, browser-based interface makes installation and configuration of the Linktropy Mini-G quick and easy. A real-time traffic monitor displays throughput graphs and statistics, revealing the effects of WAN conditions on application performance. Together, the GUI allows users to grasp the test conditions at a glance and quickly view the results.
The Linktropy 5510 WAN Emulator combines unsurpassed precision with unbeatable prices. The Linktropy 5510 simulates wide-area network bandwidth, delay, jitter, packet loss, congestion, and other important link impairments at speeds of up to 1 Gbps.
The Linktropy 5510 emulates terrestrial, wireless, satellite, internet and other wide area networks to test applications under a spectrum of real-world conditions. Through an intuitive, browser-based graphical interface, you can install the Linktropy 5510 and begin testing within minutes.
