SoftPerfect Connection Emulator (SCE) is a WAN environment emulator for network app developers, system admins and network engineers.
Software developers creating network-enabled apps, especially time-critical ones, such VoIP software or real time protocols, need to thoroughly test their products in a range of environments. Most apps work well on broadband connections, but what if an app will also be used on a low-speed communication link, like ISDN or dial-up?
Key Features include:
SoftPerfect Connection Emulator is very useful in a number of circumstances. The app imitates a network connection with low bandwidth limits, latency and losses. With SCE you can test how well your application performs on slow or long-distance connections, in order to ensure the quality of your software. The app allows you to selectively apply bandwidth limits, introduce random or fixed delays on data flows, and simulate packet loss to mimic a low-grade communication channels.
SoftPerfect Connection Emulator is available as an unlimited duration trial. The trial, however, has a maximum simulation session limited to 30 seconds.
Overall, SoftPerfect Connection Emulator is a great tool, which performs its specialist task very reliably. It comes highly recommended for Windows-based developers that need to test apps under varying network conditions.
