Netropy v2.0 Now Available
New Emulation and Administrative Features Enhance Award-Winning Network Simulator


LOS ANGELES, CA (December 4, 2012)Apposite® Technologies the leader in easy-to-use, professional-quality network emulation products, today announced the release of Netropy® v2.0. Version 2.0 adds new emulation capabilities, advanced administrative features, an updated user interface, and other enhancements to Apposite’s line of advanced network emulation appliances.

Netropy WAN emulators simulate bandwidth, latency, loss, congestion, and other network impairments to test the performance of applications in the lab. With a unique combination of ease-of-use, test lab-level precision, and unmatched pricing, Apposite’s network emulators are widely used by IT managers, network administrators, and application developers across the globe.

New features of Version 2.0 include:

  • Replay of PCAP files: Netropy can import standard PCAP files of network traffic and replay the streams as background traffic. Each PCAP stream can replicated to simulate large numbers of users or scaled to adjust the timing and bandwidth usage.
  • Routing Mode: The Netropy emulator can now be configured as an IP router to allow installation between two subnets without need for a separate router. Each emulation engine can be separately configured as a transparent bridge or as a router.
  • Improved GUI: An updated user interface expands available link statistics and adds the ability to graph any of the statistics to better visualize and troubleshoot application performance.
  • Administrative Enhancements: v2.0 adds a variety of administrative features to make Netropy even easier to install and manage, including support for DHCP, DNS, and NTP.

Netropy 2.0 firmware is now available for download to all Netropy users under a current maintenance contract at no additional charge.
