Popular KMAX Network Emulator now available as a "VM appliance"; see if you qualify for a free trial

IWL announced a new addition to its family of network emulators: KMAX-V, the virtualized version of the KMAX Network Emulator.

The KMAX Network Emulator creates real-world network conditions, such as packet loss, latency, network congestion and limited bandwidth, in the lab, to verify network application and device performance, prior to deployment.

Today’s KMAX-V network emulator puts all the same capabilities into a virtual appliance. KMAX-V is a software package, a “VM appliance”, available for the VMware vSphere Hypervisor® ESXi.

Traditional Dev/Test requires the provisioning, installation, and configuration of vendor hardware for testing complex environments and apps.  For labs and test environments utilizing VM technology, the  KMAX-V Virtual Network Emulator significantly reduces provisioning and installation time.  As a result,  the product development and testing teams can focus on productive work as soon as possible. 

“For many of our clients, the advantages of centralizing network management, reducing dependencies on additional hardware, and application portability make the VM environment the preferred solution for test labs in addition to data centers,” explained Chris Wellens, President & CEO, “Adding our advanced network simulation technology to the pre-deployment testing environment, will enhance and accelerate digital transformation by changing the design to deployment life cycle.”

With KMAX, you can create a WAN emulation in the lab, evaluate performance of your app or device, make corrections, in the presence of real-world network impairments, prior to deployment.

KMAX-V is the newest network emulator appliance for VM environments.
