Neotys’ market-leading, load testing device, Neoload, now integrates with Apposite’s industry-leading virtual network emulator, NetropyVE
LOS ANGELES (September 5, 2018) ─ Apposite® Technologies announced today that its virtual network emulation software NetropyVE integrates with Neotys’ load testing platform, NeoLoad, to deliver realistic, large-scale testing of IoT platform performance.
The direct connection between Neotys’ NeoLoad and Apposite’s NetropyVE software allows IoT projects to mimic any network topology and scenario (good, bad, or intermittent) in a controlled and repeatable manner. By creating unique customer workloads and networks at scale, NeoLoad and NetropyVE can be used together to guarantee IoT customer pilot success.
“In complex IoT deployments, applications must be developed and tested in the same ‘real-world’ environments in which they will be deployed,” said Laurent Gaudy, VP of Business Development at Neotys. “This requires closely approximating the workloads, scale, and network conditions the user is likely to encounter.”
As with traditional web and mobile applications, IoT requires rigorous testing to guarantee performance and end-user customer satisfaction. However, IoT presents new challenges. Several factors can impact the stability of IoT platforms including the number of users, sensor connectivity to the platform, and the reliability of an end user’s internet connection.
“This partnership is beneficial to both companies’ customers. With our virtual and physical network emulators, IoT system test teams can replicate realistic network conditions to reflect large scale customer deployments,” said Joe Zeto, VP of Marketing and Product Management at Apposite. “Neotys can simulate application workloads, virtual gateways and IoT specific protocols to offer a fast path to IoT proof of concept deployments at real world scale.”
NetropyVE helps customers predict how the IoT platform will handle any network (i.e. mobile, Wi-Fi WAN, or Satellite), and measure the impact impairments–such as network bandwidth, latency, and packet loss–will have on performance. This provides visibility into what happens if there is a connectivity issue during a strategic action, such as a user interacting with the mobile application or sensors sending sensitive data to the IoT platform.
NeoLoad offers the most advanced load test designer and analyzer for Agile and DevOps. By simulating large numbers of users using an application simultaneously, as well as thousands of virtual gateways, NeoLoad analyzes both performance quality of the IoT platform and realistic user response times.
From Development through Quality Assurance to Deployment, Neoload and NetropyVE can approximate the end user experience on any network and ensure applications function as expected when it’s time to go live.

Neotys has nearly 15 years of development investment into NeoLoad – the performance testing platform designed to accelerate Agile and DevOps processes. It’s built by engineers who recognized that to achieve their Agile adoption objective, they needed to create a product that could facilitate superior load and performance testing continuously. The result – up to 10x faster test creation and maintenance with NeoLoad.
