Apposite Products Now Available Through Ingram Micro
Complex Classification and other New Features Enhance Advanced Network Emulator

LAS VEGAS, NV (Interop) -- May 10, 2011Apposite® Technologies, the leader in easy-to-use, professional-quality network emulation products, announced the upcoming release of Netropy™ v1.3 today at the Interop trade show. Version 1.3 will add complex packet classification capabilities along with other new features to Apposite’s line of award-winning network emulation appliances.

Netropy network emulators simulate bandwidth, latency, loss, congestion, and other WAN impairments to test the performance of applications in the lab. With a unique combination of ease-of-use, test lab-level precision, and unmatched pricing, Apposite’s Netropy and Linktropy network emulators are widely used by IT managers, network administrators, and application developers around the globe.

New features planned for Version 1.3 of the Netropy firmware include:

  • Combination Packet Classifier: Netropy’s packet classification capabilities allow different network conditions to be applied to different packets based on IP address, VLAN, TCP/UDP port number, or other packet identifier. Starting from v1.3, users will be able to build classification rules combining multiple criteria of the same or different type, greatly increasing the ability to differentiate and impair specific traffic flows of interest.
  • Raw Data Packet Classifier: In addition to the pre-defined packet classification methods, users will be able to classify packets based on any arbitrary data in the packet.
  • Accumulate & Burst Delay: All packets that arrive during a specified length of time can be held and transmitted in a single burst.
  • Round Robin Queuing: In addition to strict prioritization of multiple queues based on IP ToS or VLAN PCP, v1.3 will add the ability to round robin between the different queues.

The Netropy 1.3 firmware is expected to be released during the second quarter, and will be available at no additional charge to all customers of the Netropy N60, N80, and 10G models under a current maintenance contract.

Demonstrations of the Apposite WAN emulation products will continue in the Apposite booth (#1874) for the duration of the Interop trade show, May 10 – May 12, 2011 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
