    Apposite Technologies is the leader in easy-to-use, professional-quality network simulation products. Apposite’s Linktropy and Netropy WAN emulation appliances simulate link bandwidth, delay, loss, congestion, and other network impairments to test the performance of applications in the lab under a spectrum of real-world conditions.

    Offering a unique combination of ease-of-use, test lab-level precision, and unmatched prices, Linktropy and Netropy WAN emulators are widely deployed by leading enterprises, application and equipment vendors, telecoms carriers, test labs, and government and military organizations across North America, Europe, and Asia.

    The Apposite technical and managerial team averages more than 25 years experience in the development of innovative computer networking products, and collectively holds seven patents in WAN optimization, TCP/IP acceleration, and HTML pre-fetching. Our pioneering experience in the development of WAN acceleration products highlighted the need for network emulation tools that provided the precision required for reliable testing, but 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 leadership team combines expertise from managerial, development, research, marketing, and sales roles at Blue Coat / Packeteer, a leading networking equipment vendor, Mentat, a pioneer in WAN acceleration, Network Research Corporation, an early developer of TCP/IP protocols, SPSS, the leader in predictive analytics, the InterOperability Lab at the University of New Hampshire (UNH-IOL), and user organizations including Hughes Electronics, Honeywell, and Kobe Steel.

    In 2013, Apposite was listed by Inc. magazine among the 5000 fastest-growing private companies in America. Apposite is privately financed and consistently profitable.
