A Network Delay Simulator You Can Trust

With Linktropy emulators, you can simulate network delays and other link impairments for the most deterministic and repeatable results possible. You can emulate bandwidth constraints, latency, jitter, loss and congestion to bring real-world scenarios into your lab. Our network delay simulator tools offer the best of all possible worlds: high precision, unbeatable pricing and industry-leading ease-of-use. There’s no training required for our intuitive, user-friendly GUI. Just plug in the Ethernet cables and specify your link conditions to begin using Linktropy‘s network delay simulator. You can perform live network emulation by capturing network conditions with the Linktropy Recorder and replaying them through the Linktropy WAN emulator. Reproduce actual network variables in a repeatable test environment. You can use Linktropy as a bandwidth simulator at any speed from 300 bits per second up to 1 Gbps.

Linktropy allows you to simulate latency from 0.1 ms up to 10 seconds in a constant, normal or uniform distribution in either direction. You can also specify loss as either a packet loss rate, bit error rate or both. By using Linktropy‘s background traffic emulation, you can determine congestion effects on bandwidth and jitter-sensitive applications. Confirm that applications can adequately handle anomalous packet reordering and duplication conditions without creating performance or stability problems. You can easily integrate Linktropy with any test network as either a bridge or a router. Throughput graphs and link statistics provide a visual display of the current traffic, and you can download up to 24 hours of statistics for analysis. Automated testing is available using the Linktropy Scheduler or the command line interface. 

Our network delay simulator tools provide repeatable, precise results for a wide range of uses, such as:

  • Pre-deployment testing
  • Network validation
  • Application optimization
  • Troubleshooting
  • Disaster recovery and remote backup
