Apposite Unveils 10 Gbps Network Simulator
Linktropy 10G Offers Cost-Effective Solution for Testing Applications over 10 Gbps Networks

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 5, 2009) - Apposite® Technologies, the leader in easy-to-use, professional-quality network simulation products, today announced the release of the Linktropy 10G WAN emulator. The Linktropy 10G is the first cost-effective solution for testing the performance of applications over 10 Gbps links.

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.

At 10 Gbps, even a few milliseconds of latency or a miniscule amount of packet loss can cause a disastrous reduction in application throughput. With 10 Gbps Ethernet now entering the mainstream for enterprise backbone links, remote backup, large file transfers, telepresence, and other mission-critical applications, IT managers and network administrators need to be able to benchmark, optimize, and troubleshoot applications at these speeds. Similarly, networking application and equipment vendors need to replicate their customers’ networks for product development, customer support, quality assurance, product demonstrations, and customer training.

The Linktropy 10G solves this problem by extending the capabilities of the Linktropy product line to 10 Gbps. Its intuitive, browser-based user interface makes installation and configuration simple and quick, with no training needed, while affordable pricing makes the Linktropy 10G cost-effective for any application.

The Linktropy 10G emulates up to two separate 10 Gbps links and one 1 Gbps link simultaneously through a combination of CX4 and copper Ethernet ports. Jumbo frame support makes it easy to test performance with large packets.

"Network managers have been caught in a dilemma that at 10 Gbps, application performance is extremely sensitive to latency, packet loss, and other impairments, but until now, appropriate test tools have been unavailable at those speeds," said DC Palter, Apposite president. "With the affordable and easy-to-use Linktropy 10G, Apposite continues to further its mission of making high-precision network test tools widely available to enterprise users."

The Linktropy 10G is available now for immediate delivery.
