With latencies of at least half a second and high bit error rates caused by the 22,000 mile journey from ground to satellite and back, satellite users are extremely aware that latency and loss often have a bigger impact on Continue reading Satellite Networks
As a developer of tools to simulate latency, many people ask us, “How can I reduce the latency?” We’re networking people, so to us, “latency” means network latency, the amount of time it takes a packet to cross the network from Continue reading How to Reduce Latency
In the past few days, there’s been a lot of talk in the news about latency. Working at a company that makes network simulators (www.apposite-tech.com), I spend my day talking about latency, but still I was not prepared to wake Continue reading Latency and the Fed
At the beginning of this month, Apposite released a new model of WAN emulator, the Netropy 10G1. The 10G1 simulates one 10 Gbps link through one pair of 10 gig ports (or up to 15 lower speed links) in a Continue reading New Netropy 10G1 Model
At the recent Sharkfest conference where Apposite was exhibiting our PCAP replay feature, a number of people walked up to our booth and said, “You’re the dudes who inject latency to simulate all the router hops along the network?” Well… Continue reading It’s the Speed of Light, Dude!
