Apposite Netropy WAN Emulators

Netropy Advanced Network Emulators

Netropy advanced network emulators simulate up to 15 separate WAN links, each with their own bandwidth, delay, and loss characteristics, through each pair of physical ports. Packets can be assigned to individual links by IP address range, VLAN, or any other packet specifier.

Netropy also offers advanced emulation and administrative capabilities for complex requirements or multi-user environments.

The Netropy 10G1 model simulates links up to 10 Gbps in an affordable, 1U system. The 10G2 doubles the capacity to simulate two separate 10 Gbps links through two pairs of SFP+ ports. The Netropy N61 emulates links up to 1 Gbps while the N91 provides 4 x 1G capabilities at full line rate. The Netropy 40G emulates links up to 40 Gbps. All models are available at a variety of maximum emulation speeds for users who do not need the full capacity of the device.

To model complex network topologies, run multiple concurrent tests, or emulate links of greater than 1 Gbps, select the Netropy network emulator.
