NetropyVE lets you test any virtual application as if it’s running over a wide area network. Recreate real-world network conditions, such as bandwidth limits, excessive latency/jitter, loss, and other impairments, to optimize the performance of applications and virtualized network functions (VNF).
NetropyVE runs as a Virtual Machine (VM) and can be used to impair specific traffic flows—all within the virtual environment.
By intelligently mimicking network conditions you can ensure the solutions you are designing and deploying work as expected when rolled out to your users.
Each virtual machine can be assigned a unique WAN access profile, and then controlled to insert latency, jitter, packet loss, and congestion to asses application performance under change. Supported on VMware ESXI and KVM platforms. A floating license system allows NetropyVE to be easily moved to different hosts. Scale up by routing multiple Virtual Machines through a single instance of NetropyVE. Designed to support 2, 1-Gig ethernet (virtual network adapters) – Max. Agg. Throughput of 2 Gbps.
Packet Classification: IP source & destination address range (IPv4 or IPv6), VLAN, TCP or UDP port number, IP ToS, MAC address, MPLS label, or any other packet contents.
Bandwidth: is supported from 100-bps -100-Gbps in 1-bps increments (depending on model).
Delay: 0 ms – 10, 000 ms or greater in each direction in 0.01 ms increments; constant, uniform, normal distributions; replay recorded loss, accumulate & burst.
Scalability: Route multiple VMs through a single NetropyVE instance
Packet filtering: Assign packets to different links by IP address, VLAN, or any other packet identifier
Bandwidth: Precisely emulate links up to 1 Gbps.
Latency: Emulate delay and jitter of 10 seconds or more in each direction, in increments of 0.01 ms
Loss and corruption: Set random, burst, or periodic packet loss to test the effects of corruption on voice and video applications.
Capture and replay: Record the delay and loss characteristics of a production network as they vary second-by-second and replay them through the Netropy emulator.
Background noise: Test how applications perform over a congested network with the background utilization and PCAP replay features
Traffic monitoring: View and download up to 24 hours of throughput graphs and link statistics
Automation: Automate testing with comprehensive API.
Cost-effective: Get the functionality and performance you need at a price you can afford.
