Network Speed Emulation

The emulator also lets you simulate various network transfer rates. You can set a transfer rate or range at emulator startup or you can use the console to change the rate dynamically, while the application is running in the emulator.

To set the network speed at emulator startup, use the -netspeed emulator option with a supported <speed> value, as listed in the table below. Here are some examples:

emulator -netspeed gsm
emulator -netspeed 14.4 80

To make dynamic changes to network speed while the emulator is running, connect to the console and use the netspeed command with a supported <speed> value from the table below.

network speed 14.4 80

The format of network <speed> is one of the following (numbers are kilobits/sec):
