The Apposite Netropy N61 provides a dedicated 1 Gbps WAN emulation engines. Netropy network emulators simulate WAN bandwidth, latency, jitter, loss, congestion, and other network impairments to test the performance of applications in the lab.
Apposite’s Netropy network emulators offer advanced capabilities to benchmark, troubleshoot, and optimize the performance of critical applications. Netropy’s unique, high-performance Emulation Engine enables high-precision emulation of up to 30 separate WAN links to model complex network topologies or run multiple concurrent tests.
Each path is configured with its own bandwidth, latency, loss and other impairments. Endpoints can be assigned to the appropriate path by IP address range, VLAN, or any other packet identifier,.and application port number. Netropy models are available with up to 4 separate Emulation Engines per unit, and capacities up to 100 Gbps.
Netropy is also available in a software version, NetropyVE, that runs as a virtual machine in virtual test environments and a cloud version, NetropyCE, that is available in the AWS Marketplace.Netropy network emulators are configured and managed through an intuitive, browser-based interface for easy operation, or through a fully RESTful API for integration with test automation tools.
Apposite Netropy N61 WAN Emulator Features:
- Simulate bandwidth, latency & jitter, loss

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.
