Rikei Begins Sales of Apposite’s Netropy Traffic Generation Enabling simulation of several thousands of network traffic flows

Rikei Corporation (Head Office: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; President & CEO: Satoru Isaka; hereinafter “Rikei”) is pleased to announce that it has begun selling Netropy Traffic Generation, a new product from Apposite Technologies Inc. (Head Office: California, US; CEO: Joseph Zeto; hereinafter “Apposite”) that enables the simulation of several thousand network clients.

Background of the market

These days, the number of people teleworking, watching video over a network, and live streaming has been increasing. To avoid problems caused by a large number of people accessing a network, validating processing capability, capacity, transmission speed, and other performance features of VPN devices, which is necessary for remote access and video streaming servers.

Overview of new product

Netropy Traffic Generation can easily simulates situations where thousands of users flock to a site, enabling actual performance to be verified. To evaluate network and device performance, it can create several thousand network clients. It reproduces communications between an application and a server and evaluates the system’s communications capabilities. For example, it can evaluate the capabilities of a firewall when traffic is simulated, simulate the processing of a large volume of traffic with a VPN device, evaluate SD-WAN controllers, verify SD-WAN setups and configurations, and optimize SD-WAN implementation, etc. 1

1 SD-WAN: Software-defined wide area network. This technology unifies WAN management. SD-WANs do not manage WANs by individual physical network device or WAN. They centrally manage networks by creating a virtual network using software.


  • Useable with high-performance dedicated devices and virtual machines
  • Browser-based user interface with a test method using a wizard 2
  • Supports RESTful API, which facilitates the automation of tests 3
  • Can execute multiple tests at the same time and continue executing them in the background
  • Can be accessed from anywhere for test execution
  • Has a large library of predefined application flows built in at no additional cost
  • Can amplify a single traffic capture to several thousand flows
  • Provides a consistent interface for all test applications
  • Detailed logs and reports for identifing problems

2 Wizard: An operation that provides a user with questions or setting items sequentially to prompt selections or input to proceed with the processing in a dialogical approach

3 RESTful API: An application program interface that uses external internet systems
