Portable Network Emulator offers Web-based interface.

Press Release Summary:

Mini Maxwell helps engineers create real-world network scenarios in lab to evaluate how their products will behave under adverse conditions. It uses standard and user-defined traffic filters, organized into multiple bands of traffic, with full range of impairments. In addition to bandwidth constrained network connections emulation, features include internal flash memory file system, auto MDI/MDI-X Ethernet interfaces, 500 MHz CPU, 256 MB memory, and 2 USB 2.0 ports.

Original Press Release:

InterWorking Labs Announces New Version of Mini Maxwell, the Portable Network Emulator

New Mini Maxwell can now emulate bandwidth constrained network links (rate limitation).

SANTA CRUZ, Calif., April 7, 2008 -- InterWorking Labs, developers of network test, emulation and optimization products to improve the quality and operation of voice/video/data networks, today announced a new version of Mini Maxwell, the popular, portable, network emulator.

Developers, IT managers, and test engineers use Mini Maxwell in a variety of environments and situations to help them evaluate and solve network problems. In addition to emulating bandwidth constrained network connections (rate limitation), the new Mini Maxwell also features:

-- Higher maximum packet rate
-- More accurate timing
-- Faster web interface
-- Larger and faster internal flash memory file system
-- Auto MDI/MDI-X (auto-crossover) Ethernet interfaces
-- Faster CPU (500mhz)
-- More memory (256Mbytes)
-- Two USB 2.0 ports

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, and sends them on their way.

Robust Functionality

Mini Maxwell uses standard and user defined traffic filters, organized into multiple bands of traffic, with a full range of impairments, operating bi-directionally.

"I have found Mini Maxwell very valuable for optimizing client/server performance. Now with the bandwidth limitation feature in the new Mini Maxwell package, I can test my server application on slower links," said Craig Watkins, Chief Technical Officer at Transcend, Inc. "I pack up Mini Maxwell with my laptop computer so I have everything I need when traveling."

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