|Quick, Easy, Inexpensive||Get the Form Factor That's Right For You||Frequently Asked Questions|
|Usually you have to pick two: quick and easy, quick and inexpensive, or easy and inexpensive! But Mini Maxwell delivers all three! You can get right to work on your network emulation with zero drama. Are you testing a new product? Designing a network? Deploying a distributed app? No matter what the task, you need to account for a wide range of adverse network conditions -- limited bandwidth, delayed packets, malformed packets whether accidentally generated or the product of malicious hackers, and much more. Need some help getting started? Set up a consultation with one of our experts...||
Whether you need a portable solution or a rack mount package, Mini Maxwell fits the bill! Choose between the "paperback novel" sized package or the rackmount version for the data center or lab environment. If you have low power requirements or need ultra quiet operation, choose the paperback size. If you have security and/or inventory control and tracking concerns, select the rackmount package. With either package, control your Mini Maxwell remotely via a web page, or script.
Why would I want Mini Maxwell given all the network emulators on the market? Mini Maxwell is the perfect choice if you want a highly portable, very low cost, network emulator. Mini Maxwell emulates real-world network conditions in your lab or office for testing, validation, troubleshooting, training, demonstrations, adn tradeshows. Mini Maxwell supports packet drop/loss, duplication, delay (latency)/jitter, reorder, and burst. It operates in layer two bridging mode to minimize configuration and remain "invisible" to the devices under test. Read the General FAQ or the Technical FAQ.

What is the effect on SAN devices when parallel routing paths that create re-ordering?
Use Mini Maxwell network emulator to augment training classes with hands-on lab sessions. Students or the instructor can study the question above, or emulate a satellite connection, create a denial of service attack, or any other network condition. Students then correlate network behavior with causes of that behavior and learn how networks operate. For product training, students can gain experience with your product to see how it behaves under adverse network conditions. This provides deeper product knowledge and inspires more confidence for product support.
How does the new VoIP phone perform when 10 ms of jitter is applied to the voice traffic? Can you still hear clearly?
Use the Mini Maxwell network emulator to demonstrate your product. The Mini Maxwell network emulator system emulates the real-world network. You set the conditions (misconfigured routers, congestion, and timeouts) and the Mini Maxwell emulator emulates the network experience. Customers can then visualize your product and see it perform. Best of all, the Mini Maxwell network emulator system fits into your laptop bag or carry-on. Set it up in your tradeshow booth or in the customer's conference room in just a few minutes. Get everyone's attention on the key benefits of your product, not the network setup.
Was it the misconfigured router that caused the server to slow down or was it a bug in the server?
Use the Mini Maxwell network emulation system to test and replicate bugs in BETA releases and at customer sites. Recreate intractable and intermittent bugs. Show the customer the real cause of the problem. Avoid finger pointing and provide conclusive proof of network problems, such as misconfigured routers, long queues in switching devices as well as transient routing loops, inadequate compensation algorithms in VoIP devices ,or tunnels with inadequate MTUs. Mini Maxwell's network emulation system low power and quiet operation lets you quickly set it up in a wide variety of environments.
Mini Maxwell network emulation system is an easy to use, portable, low cost, network emulator. Attach Mini Maxwell at any point in the network without any special configuration. From a web interface, introduce adverse condition or bandwidth limited conditions and network impairments. Then observe the behavior on applications and devices.
In this way, you can quickly and efficiently determine how resilient your product is to the unfavorable conditions that occur with frequency on real-world networks.
Emulate your network with new applications, adverse conditions, and anything else you can think of with Mini Maxwell. The Mini Maxwell network emulator will create the same real-world conditions that affect production networks in your lab or on your desktop, so you can visualize and understand the effects. The Mini Maxwell network emulator is well suited to training and learning environments, demonstrations and trade shows, and testing, validation and troubleshooting.
As network applications proliferate and users attach new types of devices to networks, the need for high QoS and better packet compensation algorithms increases. Through use of a network simulator, you can discover hidden problems that only reveal themselves at the worst possible moments and fix them, saving time, money, and your reputation. Let us help add the Maxwell Network Emulator to your lab!

Mini Maxwell operates on packets arriving on the two data interfaces. Depending on the settings, the packets may be passed to the other data interface unchanged or may undergo modifications, replications, delays, and other transformations. Except for these transformations Mini Maxwell is invisible at layer 2 and above.
Thus, the MAC addresses and headers, and all higher level addresses and headers are not affected by Mini Maxwell unless some configured transformation is performed. Thus Mini Maxwell may be inserted into a network at any point where one would use a simple category 5 Ethernet cable. Typically Mini Maxwell is placed in a test network at some point where it is carrying the traffic that one wants Mini Maxwell to transform.
