By combining unparalleled ease-of-use with unmatched pricing, Apposite makes it possible for network managers, IT administrators, and application developers to learn within minutes how applications will perform over a variety of real-world networks.

Both the N91 and L8510 offer four pairs of gigabit Ethernet emulation ports in a 1U-szied chassis. The Linktropy 8510 simulates four separate links up to 1 Gbps each. The Netropy N91 simulates up to 15 separate links through each pair of ports for a total of up to 60 separate links. Both models forward an aggregate of 8 Gbps at full line late and are available with either RJ45 or SFP ports for easy connectivity to any type of copper or fiber network.
