Apposite Netropy Cloud Edition

Network Emulation for
AWS Cloud Environments

Introducing Netropy Cloud Edition (CE), a software version of Apposite’s Network Emulation Appliances built for cloud-based testing

Powerful, flexible network
emulation and testing in the cloud

NetropyCE is available now as an Amazon Machine Instance (AMI) in the AWS Marketplace.
Emulate an entire global test network in a single AWS virtual private cloud (VPC) and introduce impairments such as bandwidth limitations, latency, congestion, and packet loss for a realistic test of application performance.

Emulate any complex network scenario in the cloud

Scalability: Deploy a global test network with multiple instances in a single virtual private cloud (VPC).


Bandwidths up to 20 Gbps: Precisely emulate links up to 1Gbps and 20 Gbps in the future.


Latency up to 20 sec.: Emulate delay and jitter of 10 seconds or more in each direction, in increments of 0.01 ms.


Loss and corruption: Set random, burst, or periodic packet loss to test the effects of corruption on voice and video applications.


Capture and replay: Record the delay and loss characteristics of a production network as they vary second-by-second and replay them through the Netropy emulator.

Packet filtering: Assign packets to different links by IP address, VLAN, or any other packet identifier.


Background utilization: Test how applications perform over a congested network with the background utilization and PCAP replay features.


Traffic monitoring: View and download up to 24 hours of throughput graphs and link statistics.


Automation: Automate testing with RESTful API.


Cost-effective: NetropyCE is charged at hourly and yearly rates, so only pay for how much you use it.


Requirements: NetropyCE 1G requires a C5.XLarge Instance in AWS, or for NetropyCE 20G any instance that has 20Gbps, 2 CPUs & 8 GB RAM or more


Optimize application performance before you launch

Save money by running controlled, repeatable tests within one region or VPC instead of paying to send traffic between geographically dispersed AWS regions.
Gain visibility into projected end-user experience over a range of use cases, such as data center consolidation, new technology rollouts, changes in network topology, cloud migrations, etc.

Easy to use cloud based testing tools

NetropyCE has the same great features as our hardware emulation appliances.
Change impairments and view results in real time, configure testing via our intuitive GUI or automate it with RESTful API. Or, profile live networks and import those conditions into network emulation. Visit AWS Marketplace
