Ensure Application Performance

Enterprise network managers are tasked with a daunting challenge: businesses rely on centrally hosted applications that must provide responsive access to employees spread across the globe. While applications may run perfectly on a local area network at corporate headquarters, network conditions over the WAN, including bandwidth constraints, latency, jitter and packet loss, can bring an application to a screeching halt for users on the other side of the world.

Apposite's Netropy and Linktropy WAN emulators make it easy for enterprise IT teams to simulate wide area network conditions to understand the impact of network conditions on application throughput, responsiveness, and quality.

The Apposite WAN emulators allow IT teams to understand how applications will behave prior to a new roll-out, optimize performance, troubleshoot ongoing problems, and validate upgrades.

  • WAN optimization
  • Remote access/ VDI
  • File transfers and asset management
  • Backup & disaster recovery
  • VoIP and Video


Network design
Build "what-if" scenarios to ensure critical applications perform as needed.
App validation
See how applications will perform prior to roll-out and avoid unpleasant surprises.
Analyze the benefits of WAN acceleration products to optimize the existing infrastructure.
Identify problems and validate potential solutions without disrupting the production network.


Netropy User Interface

Configuration requires only a few simple steps through the intuitive, browser-based GUI.


Netropy main configuration and monitoring window.

Path Configuration

Set the bandwidth, delay, loss, and other network conditions for each link in the Path Configuration window.

Classifier Configuration

Direct packets onto individual links by IP address, VLAN, or other packet fields in the Classifier Configuration window.

I was able to set up high-latency, high-congestion links very quickly and more reliably than using any other solution. Overall, I was very impressed with how easy the Linktropy product is to setup and operate. The Linktropy WAN emulator allows me to not only throttle bandwidth down to bits per second, but its built-in network monitoring tools allow me to watch client/server bandwidth utilization in real time, even when the network is so slow that it is impossible to retrieve data from the client directly.
