Apposite’s 10 Gbps WAN Emulator Triples Capacity Required for Testing Latency-Sensitive Applications

June 2017 by Marc Jacob

Apposite® Technologies announced the
release of its next-generation, high-performance WAN emulator. The Netropy 10G2
allows application developers and enterprises to validate the performance of
bandwidth-intensive, latency-sensitive applications prior to roll-out. Regardless of
the application, the new Netropy 10G2 WAN Emulator can now simulate two separate
bi-directional 10 Gbps links running at full-line rate.

Many of today’s bandwidth-intensive applications, such as network storage, data
center replication, and IP video are susceptible to the network impairments found in
wide area networks (WANs)—such as bandwidth constraints, latency, packet loss and
congestion. Apposite Technologies’ WAN emulators allow application developers and
IT managers to simulate these network variances to determine how their applications
will run in real-world conditions before the application ever reaches the end user.

Businesses deploy 10 Gbps links in the wide area for many applications, including
server-to-server back up and IP video distribution. When high latency is introduced,
file transfers become sluggish, even with sufficient bandwidth. Apposite’s
Netropy 10G2 offers enterprises the ability to simulate high latency connections to
test real-world, worst-case conditions.

The new Netropy 10G2’s two bi-directional 10 Gbps links allow simulation of
redundant 10 Gbps lines, or two separate 10 Gbps simulations at the same time. The 4
SFP+ ports offer 1/10 Gbps autonegotiating capability, supporting both 10 Gbps SFP+
and 1 Gbps SFP for easy installation onto any 1 or 10 Gbps network. It features a
redundant power supply to guarantee uninterrupted operation for installation in
mission-critical networks.

Apposite’s trademark ease of use and configuration flexibility facilitate modeling
of performance across specific network links for network design, vendor selection,
configuration, troubleshooting and verification of ongoing upgrades to network
sensitive applications:

Netropy 10G2 usage is focused on:

· Storage over WAN

· Datacenter replication

· Remote backup/disaster recovery

· IP video

· WAN equipment testing

The Netropy 10G2 is available immediately.
