Apposite Technologies makes WAN emulation easy by offering professional-quality network emulation tools at affordable prices. Apposite’s Netropy and Linktropy WAN emulation appliances simulate bandwidth, latency, loss, congestion, and other network impairments with fine-grained precision to provide accurate simulations of any type of wide-area network. Netropy and Linktropy WAN emulators are widely deployed by leading enterprises, application and equipment developers, telecoms carriers, and government and military organisations around the world. Apposite Technologies – WAN Emulation Made Easy.
Apposite’s Linktrophy WAN emulators simulate bandwidth, latency, jitter, loss, congestion, and other important link impairments in the lab under a spectrum of real-world conditions. Through an intuitive, browser-based user interface, you can install the Linktrophy WAN emulator and begin testing within minutes.

Apposite’s pioneering experience in the development of WAN acceleration products highlighted the need for network emulation tools that provided the precision required for reliable testing, without the cost and complexity that put existing tools out of reach for most users. This led directly to the founding of Apposite Technologies in 2005 to fulfill the mission of making application testing ubiquitous. Apposite’s network emulation products are used by 2,500 leading enterprises, network application developers, government and military organizations, and telecommunications carriers around the world.
