The SoftPerfect Connection Emulator (SCE) software is aimed for network application developers, system administrators and network engineers. Software developers creating network-enabled applications, especially those time-critical such as VoIP software or real time protocols, need to test their products thoroughly in a range of environments. Apparently most applications work well on broadband connections, but what if you need to test your application on a low-speed communication link such as ISDN or dial-up?
This is where SCE comes in handy. It is a WAN emulator that imitates a network connection with a low bandwidth limit, delays, losses and other problems. Using SCE you can test how well your application performs on a slow or long distance connection to ensure the quality of the product being developed. SCE runs on any PC with Windows XP or higher, allowing you to selectively apply bandwidth limits and simulate packet traversal issues to mimic a low-grade communication channel.
This product is available as an unlimited trial, however maximum simulation session is limited to 30 seconds. Purchasing a license will remove this limitation and allow to run lengthy simulations.
The application is easy to use and features a modern GUI.
