Product Detail

The Linktropy 8510 WAN emulator simulates wide-area network bandwidth, delay, jitter, packet loss, congestion, and other important link impairments at speeds of up to 1 Gbps per link. The Linktropy 8510 can emulate up to 4 separate individual links simultaneously at full line rate to an aggregate throughput of 8 Gbps, making it ideal for both multi-link configurations and multi-user labs. The compact 1U-sized appliance is available with either copper RJ45 or fiber SFP Gigabit Ethernet interfaces.

Linktropy 8510
Emulate four individual WAN links up to 1 Gbps each through separate physical pairs of ports

Features & Benefits

  • Feature 1 Easy to Use: Linktropy WAN emulators are a snap to install and configure. Just plug in the Ethernet cables, specify your link conditions, and begin emulating networks.
  • Feature 2 Bandwidths up to 1Gbps: Emulate links of any speed from 300 bits per second up to 1 Gbps.
  • Feature 3 Delay up to 10 seconds: Emulate network latency from 0.1 ms up to 10 seconds in each direction in a constant, normal, or uniform distribution.
  • Feature 4 Error Emulation: Specify loss as a packet loss rate, bit error rate, or both.
  • Feature 5 Congestion: Determine the effects of congestion on bandwidth and jitter-sensitive applications by utilizing Linktropy's background traffic emulation.
  • Feature 6 Advanced Emulation Parameters: Linktropy's state of the art application performance testing tools helps verify that applications properly handle anomalous packet reordering and duplication conditions without inducing stability or performance problems.
  • Feature 7 Bridging/Routing: Install the Linktropy WAN emulator as either a bridge or router for easy integration with any test network.
  • Feature 8 Traffic Monitor: See a visual display of the current traffic, including throughput graphs and link statistics. Download up to 24 hours of statistics for analysis.
  • Feature 9 Multiple Links: Emulate multiple links with the 8510 model. Four separate pairs of Ethernet interfaces make simulation of multiple links as easy as a single link.
  • Feature 10 Automated Testing: Take advantage of the Linktropy Scheduler or the command line interface to automate a series of tests.
