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.
