Apposite Releases Linktropy 10G with XFP Interfaces

10 Gbps Linktropy WAN Emulator Now Available with Modular Fiber Interfaces


LAS VEGAS, NV (Interop) - May 19, 2009 - Apposite® Technologies, the leader in easy-to-use, professional-quality, network simulation products, today announced the availability of the Linktropy 10G WAN emulator with XFP interfaces for easy connectivity to any fiber network.

Linktropy 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 WAN emulators are widely deployed by enterprises, application and equipment vendors, telecoms carriers, and government and military organizations.

The Linktropy 10G model emulates links up to 10 Gbps. Starting immediately, the Linktropy 10G will be available with either four XFP ports or four CX4 ports. The XFP option make it easy to connect the Linktropy 10G to any 10 Gbps fiber-based Ethernet network, while the CX4 option offers a low-cost alternative for short distance connections in the lab. Both versions include a pair of gigabit Ethernet ports to connect to any standard copper-based Ethernet network.

Upgrade options are available for existing customers of the Linktropy 10G that wish to replace the CX4 ports on their units with XFP interfaces.

Demonstrations of the Linktropy products will continue in the Apposite booth (#466) for the duration of the Interop trade show, May 19 - May 21, 2009 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
