SoftPerfect Connection Emulator (SCE) is a WAN emulator used to test how well a piece of software will perform under a number of different conditions. A piece of software with low memory requirements can use SoftPerfect the best.When it acts as a network, it can carry less latency and bandwidth.

Computers with an operating system of Windows XP or higher can be run on this program. There is no indication that other Operating Systems may be compatible with this Operating System upgrade.

Variable latency data will be analyzed by creating a correlation to determine whether the current value will differ from the prior one. It will be easier to cut down on the randomness associated with each sequence with this sort of feature.

When you go to the Profiles tab, test settings can be automatically saved, as well as the option to select multiple settings at once, as detailed here. Latency options include both the delayed and the canceled, as the Latency page notes that if traffic is processed using both directions, latency is applied two times (once when the packet goes out, once if the reply is received), before being reverted.

Users of the Corruption feature are able to specify which packets they wish to corrupt. In fact, users can even specify which percentage of packets should be corrupted if they so choose. A duplicate in duplication works only when the item sent or received contains the duplicate item. For further review, logs can be downloaded from Libpcap with the Capture feature.

Factors such as bandwidth limits, packet losses, and the use of different data flows should be taken into account.

  • Able to run on any PC with Windows XP or higher
  • Can simulate both fixed and variable latency
  • Able to lower/restrict the connection speed
  • Multiple simulation profiles supported with program
  • Can restrict the profile to a particular IP stream
