Description: Apposite Linktropy 8510 - Network testing device - GigE - 1U
Mfr Part #: L8510-1G
The Linktropy 8510 WAN emulator simulates wide-area network bandwidth, delay, jitter, packet loss, congestion, and other important link impairments at speeds of up to 1 Gbps per link. The Linktropy 8510 can emulate up to 4 separate individual links simultaneously at full line rate to an aggregate throughput of 8 Gbps, making it ideal for both multi-link configurations and multi-user labs. The compact 1U-sized appliance is available with either copper RJ45 or fiber SFP Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. The Linktropy 8510 emulates terrestrial, wireless, satellite, internet and other wide area networks to test applications under a spectrum of real-world conditions. Through an intuitive, browser-based graphical interface, you can install the Linktropy 8510 and begin testing within minutes.
- Bandwidths up to 1 Gbps per link
- 4 separate links
- Aggregate throughput of 8 Gbps at full line rate
- Copper or SFP Gigabit Ethernet interfaces
- Easy to use
The Linktropy 8510 WAN emulator is a snap to install and configure. Just plug in the Ethernet cables, specify your link conditions, and begin the emulation. No software to install, no training needed. The Linktropy GUI combines the responsiveness of an application with the convenience of a standard web browser.
- Bandwidths up to 1 Gbps
Emulate WAN bandwidths up to 1 Gbps in each direction per link across 4 separate links to an aggregate of 8 Gbps at full line rate of approximately 12 million packets per second. Versions also available with maximum emulation speeds of 10 Mbps, 45 Mbps and 100 Mbps for users who do not need the full gigabit capacity.
- Multiple links
With the ability to emulate 4 separate, independent links, the Linktropy 8510 is a compact and cost-effective alternative to multiple WAN emulation appliances. Independent pairs of Ethernet interfaces for each link make configuration of multiple links as easy as a single link.
- Delay up to 10 sec
Emulate latency from 1 millisecond up to 10 seconds in each direction in a constant, normal, or uniform distribution, or replay latency conditions captured from the live network.
- Error emulation
Specify loss as a packet loss rate, bit error rate, or both.
Determine the effects of congestion on bandwidth and jitter-sensitive applications by utilizing Linktropy's background traffic emulation.
- Advanced emulation parameters
Verify that applications properly handle anomalous packet reordering and duplication conditions without inducing stability or performance problems. Adjust the framing overhead and maximum queue depth to match real link behavior.
- Capture and replay live network conditions
Capture live network conditions with the Linktropy Recorder and replay them through the Linktropy WAN emulator to reproduce the varying characteristics of the production network in a repeatable test environment.
- Traffic monitor
See a visual display of the current traffic, including throughput graphs and link statistics. Download up to 24 hours of statistics for analysis.
- Copper or SFP interfaces
The Linktropy 8510 is available with 8 copper RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 8 SFP Gigabit Ethernet ports, or 4 of each, for convenient installation on copper or fiber-based networks.
Install the Linktropy 8510 as either a bridge or router for easy integration with any test configuration.
- Automated testing
Take advantage of the Linktropy Scheduler or the command line interface to automate a series of tests.
- Unsurpassed precision
Test with confidence - Linktropy WAN emulators offer unsurpassed precision to ensure accurate and reproducible results.
- Everything you need
Everything you need is included in the compact, 1U rack-mountable Linktropy 8510. No additional hardware or software is required.
