The Linktropy Mini-G is a portable, low cost, easy-to-use WAN emulator, designed to emulate basic network conditions for application development and customer demonstrations of networking products.
The Linktropy Mini Series WAN emulators simulate bandwidth, latency, and loss separately in each direction. Their small size and light weight make them easy to carry, while their fanless design and solid-state storage offers silent operation with high reliability. The Mini-G100 simulates links up to 100 Mbps while the Mini-G handles links up to 1 Gbps.
An intuitive, browser-based interface makes installation and configuration 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.
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.
