The Netropy 10G1 raises the bar on performance and affordability for a 10 Gbps network emulator. With the ability to simulate links up to 10 Gbps in a compact 1U-sized system, the 10G1 is ideal for testing cloud computing, storage replication and synchronization, media asset distribution, telepresence, and other applications that rely on high-speed networks.
In addition simulating a single link up to 10 Gbps, the Netropy 10G1 can simulate up to fifteen separate WAN links, with packets assigned to the various links by IP address range, VLAN, or any other packet identifier, making it possible to simulate ten 1 Gbps links or fifteen lower speed links all within a single device.
The 10G1 comes with two 10GbE Ethernet ports for emulation, either SFP+ or RJ45. The device can forward an aggregate of 20 Gbps of traffic at a rate of more than 29 million packets per second, making it suitable for testing any type of data, voice, or video application.
For users without an immediate need to simulate 10 Gbps links, a version is also available at a maximum emulation speed of 1 Gbps per WAN link, offering a lower-cost alternative for testing large numbers of 1 Gbps links and providing an easy upgrade path to 10 Gbps while including the same 10 GbE ports for connectivity to a local 10 Gbps network.
The Netropy 10G1 is configured and managed through an intuitive, browser-based interface for easy operation, or through a comprehensive command line interface for integration with test automation tools.
The Netropy 10G1 Network Emulator is quick to install, intuitive to configure, and easy to operate. The Netropy GUI provides the responsiveness of an application with the convenience of a standard web browser.
The Netropy 10G1 simulates up to 15 separate WAN links, making it easy to simulate large numbers of gigabit or other high-speed links through a single pair of ports. Packets are assigned to individual links by IP source and destination address range (IPv4 or IPv6), VLAN, MAC address, MPLS label, application port number, or any other packet field.
Accurately simulate links from 100 bits per second up to 10 Gbps. Also available in a 1 Gbps version for users who need to emulate many lower speeds links or want the flexibility to upgrade to 10 Gbps later.
Emulate delay and jitter up to 10 seconds, in increments of 0.01 ms, with a constant, normal, exponential, or uniform distribution.
Set random, burst, or periodic packet loss, or a bit error rate. Test the effect of data corruption on voice and video applications.
Capture live network conditions with the Netropy Recorder and replay them through the Netropy Network Emulator to reproduce the dynamic delay and loss characteristics of the production network in a repeatable test environment.
Test how applications run over a congested network without costly traffic generators or a rack full of client machines using Netropy's unique background utilization feature that replays PCAP files as background traffic. Each PCAP stream can replicated to simulate large numbers of users or scaled to adjust the timing and bandwidth usage.
Graph or download up to 24 hours of throughput and other link statistics to visualize and troubleshoot application performance.
Install each emulation engine as either a bridge or router for easy integration with any test configuration.
The Netropy 10G1 comes with two dual-rate 1/10 Gbps SFP+ ports to connect to any type of 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps Ethernet network. The interfaces support any standard 10 Gbps SFP+ or 1 Gbps SFP transceiver. The 10G1 is optionally available with 10 GbE RJ45 (100M/1G/10G auto-negotiate) ports instead to connect to standard copper Ethernet networks.
Automate testing using the comprehensive command line interface.
Use SSL or SSH for secure access to the Netropy interface. Individual users can lock their Emulation Engine to prevent configuration changes by any other user. Set user passwords on the device or take advantage of an LDAP server.
Test with confidence - the high-precision Netropy Emulation Engine ensures accurate and reproducible results.
The Netropy Emulation Engine monitors internal processing and buffering resources to guarantee testing validity.
Emulate 10 Gbps networks at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions. Also available in a 1 Gbps version for users who need to emulate multiple 1 Gbps networks, connect to a 10 Gbps infrastructure, or want future expandability at a lower cost.
Apposite makes buying easy by including everything in one low price. No additional hardware (except standard SFP+ or SFP transceivers), software, or training required.
With the ability to simulate one 10 Gbps link or up to 15 separate lower speed links, the Netropy 10G1 has a myriad of uses:
The 10G1 is capable of 10 Gbps bi-drectional with any packet sizes, perfect for simulating any type of 10 Gbps network.
Model a full enterprise network of regional, branch, and local offices, telecommuters, and partners, all connected to headquarters or centralized datacenter. The 10G1 can simulate up to 15 different WAN links to an aggregate of 10 Gbps in each direction.
Run separate tests side-by-side to:
Segregate traffic from individual devices and apply impairments to specific applications
Complete a matrix of conditions by running multiple tests in parallel
