LANforge Ice Multi-port WAN Emulator
Great for testing online gaming!
The Multi-port WAN emulator is an excellent choice for high-density WAN emulation. The Multi-port is a set of 2 machines: One LANforge machine to do the WAN emulation and bridging, and an off-the-shelf managed ethernet switch supporting 802.1Q VLANs.
The user's stations plug into the ethernet switch and speak regular ethernet (no 802.1Q VLAN support is required in the devices-under-test.) The bridge machine usually requires no active maintainance or configuration, and the LANforge machine may be managed locally or remotely with the LANforge-GUI. This configuration is available in 8,16, 24, 48 and 96 port configurations. Contact your sales representative for pricing and configuration details.
