Configure the WAN parameters

When you use NV Network Editor to create NV profiles, you can define the following WAN parameters:

  • Latency and Packet Loss: The latency defines the time it takes an IP packet to cross the WAN (one-way); the packet loss determines how many packets are dropped.

    For details, see Latency and packet loss [WAN Parameters].

  • Packet Effects: Dynamic IP packet routing effects, including out-of-order packets (reordering), duplicated packets, and packet fragmentation.

    For details, see Packet effects [WAN Parameters].

  • Link Faults: Possible damage to bit streams, network disconnections, and network congestion.

    For details, see Link faults [WAN Parameters].

    Note: You can manually specify the latency and packet loss parameters, or you can import the parameters from an .ntx file. Packet Effects and Link Faults are always set manually, i.e. they cannot be imported from a file.
