Satellite Link and Network Emulators

Link and network emulation for satellite communications terminals and solutions enable you to be in complete control of your test and demo situation. Whether you want to test best- or worst-case scenarios is up to you and so is your location – no airtime or line-of-sight is required.

Test and demo terminals and applications in any scenario

Testing or demonstrating on-air entails a great deal of preparation. Setting up and connecting a satellite terminal is fairly easy, but not trivial, and users have to be aware of satellite pointing, service costs, and external factors that may affect them such as weather fade or network congestion.

Eliminate expensive air-time

By emulating the satellite link, you can eliminate the need to

  • use expensive air-time
  • establish line-of-sight
  • travel

And you can also eliminate complications caused by uncontrolled parameters such as weather fade and congestion conditions.

Gain complete control over the conditions

Demonstration of a solution to a customer is easily done with a test tool to prove functionality and stability.

A test tool lets you stress test your solution to  show how it handles e.g. errors or challenges such as

  • latency
  • jitters
  • and much more.

Obtain more robust products

Identify the source of a problem easily in a controlled and reproducible test environment:

  • Perform tests repeatedly under the exact same conditions
  • Off-air test your terminal or solution in a lab to efficiently obtain more robust products.

In a world that is constantly in search of ways to secure and guarantee connectivity and up-time, off-air testing have an integral part to play.


  • Demo your solutions anywhere
  • No airtime
  • No line-of-sight needed – indoor use
  • Controlled test of any scenario
  • Efficient regression testing
