InterWorking Labs Announces Mini Maxwell, a  Portable, Low-Cost Network Emulator

New paperback novel-sized network emulator under $1,500.

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. (December 8, 2006) - InterWorking Labs, developers of innovative products to measure, characterize, and debug next generation network devices in enterprise communications networks, today announced Mini Maxwell, a portable, low-cost, easy to use and configure, network emulator.

New Portable Network Emulator

Packaged in a 6" x6" x 1" enclosure and weighing less than two pounds,  Mini Maxwell easily fits into a laptop bag or briefcase.  Network administrators, technicians, development and test engineers can easily transport Mini Maxwell to a variety of environments and situations to help them evaluate and solve network problems. 

At $1,499 -- Lowest Price Network Emulator available today

Mini Maxwell delivers robust functionality at a very affordable price.  Not just limited to simple-minded packet drops, Mini Maxwell uses standard and user defined traffic filters, organized into multiple bands of traffic, in a large assortment of impairments, with bidirectional operation.

Easy to Use Web Browser Interface

Enter the URL.  Click on a button.  Then select the impairments you want to use (packet drop/lose, duplicate, delay (latency)/jitter, reorder, burst).  In less than ten minutes, you will be emulating a real-world network environment on your desktop, at the tradeshow booth, or in a conference room.  Online help and sample network scenarios help you move into more sophisticated emulations.  Save your emulated network (one click) and reload it at a later time (one click). 

No Fuss Set Up and Configuration

Mini Maxwell acts as a “bump on the wire” and is invisible to the devices around it.  As network traffic passes through, Mini Maxwell filters the packets of interest, impairs them, then sends them on their way.

"With a power draw of less than three watts, silent operation, and very light weight, Mini Maxwell can be used in environments and situations that were never possible before," said Karl Auerbach, Chief Technical Officer at InterWorking Labs.

Mini Maxwell is available now from InterWorking Labs at $1,499.00 plus tax and shipping.
