Reduce Testing Time

Game developers need to ensure that their product won't crumble under excessive lag or crippling packet loss. They also need to provide gamers a level playing field, despite the wide range of network connections, but solely relying on beta testing to identify networking issues can delay the final release by months.

Netropy WAN Emulators simplify game testing by creating a repeatable test environment that simulates real-world conditions. The intuitive GUI makes it easy to simulate any network conditions within minutes while the CLI is ideal for automated QA testing.

Netropy WAN emulators can also simulate the connections of tens of thousands of separate end users.

With no training, developers, QA teams, and customer support can quickly replicate gamer networks to identify issues and fix problems immediately.
