Application Performance Testing Tools

Fast, Flexible Network Emulation

Emulate network impairments such as bandwidth constraints, latency, jitter, and loss at link speeds up to 1 Gpbs. Linktropy Mini lets users change impairments and measure results in real time. Live network traffic can be profiled and imported into the WAN emulation tool.

Easy Installation and Application Performance Testing

Linktropy Mini network emulators are quick to install, intuitive to configure, and easy to operate. The Linktropy Mini GUI provides the responsiveness of an application with the convenience of a standard web browser. Get up and running in minutes with no training necessary.

Network Testing Tools

Quickly Emulate Network Impairments with Linktropy Mini’s Simple Design

Easy to Use: The Linktropy Mini Series WAN emulation tools are a snap to install and configure. Just plug in the Ethernet cables, specify the link conditions, and begin testing. No software to install, no training needed.

Bandwidth up to 1 Gbps: Emulate links up to 1 Gbps in each direction with the Mini-G and 100 Mbps with the Mini2.

Delay up to 10 Seconds: Emulate latency from 0.1 ms. up to 10 sec. in each direction in a constant, normal, or uniform distribution.

Error Emulation: Specify loss as a packet loss rate, bit error rate, or both.

Emulate Any WAN: Emulate terrestrial, wireless, internet, satellite or any other type of wide area network with robust network testing tools.

Traffic Monitor: See a visual display of the current traffic, including throughput graphs and link statistics.

Bridging/Routing: Install the device as either a bridge or router.

Portable: Carry the Linktropy Mini2 or Mini-G with you. Their small size and light weight make them easy to take wherever you travel.

Everything You Need: Everything you need to emulate a WAN is included in these compact devices. No additional hardware or software required.
