Why do I need a network emulator?

The Internet is not perfect; it fails a lot. This has adverse consequences for your product, ranging from sluggishness to a catastrophic crash. Users are likely to move on to a more reliable product, and your reputation will suffer.

Before you deploy your app or device, do you know how it will respond to all network conditions?

What about free solutions?

  • Requires "Domain Expertise" - senior, experienced network engineer must determine appropriate
    values for emulating key environments -- mobile, WAN, cloud, satellite
  • Difficult to use - limited graphical interface, lack of documentation or online help
  • Implementation, updates, bug fixes and support not available - you are on your own or you can use
    non-authoritative message boards
  • Inaccurate and incomplete impairments - lack of calibration generates incorrect results, limited
    functionality for corruption, limited options for rate limiting
