Apposite Unveils TrafficJam™ Traffic Generator at Interop

Low Cost, Stateful Traffic Generator Tests Network Capacity



 

LAS VEGAS, NV (Interop) ─ April 28, 2015 ─ Apposite® Technologies, the leader in enterprise-class WAN emulation tools, will preview TrafficJam™, its new line of stateful traffic generators, starting today at the Interop trade show.

TrafficJam is an ultra-low cost, high performance test tool that generates TCP and UDP traffic for measuring the capacity of networks and networking equipment. The device generates real, stateful TCP connections that provide realistic responses to changing network conditions and can be fully configured to match real traffic or test the effect of TCP parameters on network performance.

TrafficJam’s live graphs and statistics allow real-time monitoring of connection state and advanced visualization of test results. Each port can be used for both sending and receiving traffic, and a single TrafficJam device can be used for looped testing in a lab or multiple devices can be used to test across networks to separate physical locations.

The first TrafficJam model, the portable I-10, generates 1 Gbps of traffic with up to 20 separate TCP connections and UDP streams through each of two test ports, and will be available at any introductory price of under $500.

TrafficJam features include:

  • Multiple simultaneous TCP connections and UDP streams with grouping for independent tests
  • Stateful, configurable TCP connections
  • Easy-to use, browser-based GUI
  • Graphs and statistics for real-time monitoring and analysis
  • Configurable packet contents
  • Multiple IP addresses (IPv4 or IPv6) per test port

The TrafficJam I-10 model offers:

  • 1 Gbps full-duplex capacity per port
  • Two Gigabit Ethernet test ports
  • Up to 20 separate TCP and UDP streams
  • Lightweight, portable device convenient to carry to test sites

“This type of traffic generator is exactly what we need to validate the performance of our own products,” said Masayuki Horikiri, Vice President of Anritsu Networks, an Apposite customer. “Until now, we had to build our own test tools but that’s inconvenient and subtracts from development and testing time. We have long experience with the very high quality of Apposite’s products and are eagerly awaiting the availability of TrafficJam.”

“Finally, a simple to use, inexpensive stateful traffic generator!” said Tim O’Neill, Chief Contributing Editor of LoveMyTool. “TrafficJam will really test the network’s ability to handle actual loads and will leave network managers with no excuses when it comes to testing their network.”

Apposite will be demonstrating TraifficJam along with its WAN emulation products in the Apposite booth (#2355) at the Interop trade show, April 28 - 30, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
