WAN Latency Estimator

Enter a number in either field, then click outside of the text box.

Distance in:
Distance between sites:
Fibre path adjustment:
Metro fibre & local loop length:
Speed of light in fibre:
/ millisecond
Equipment latency:
Round-trip time (RTT):

The primary purpose of this tool is to estimate WAN latency based on the light signal propagation time over a fibre link. This tool does not take into account any additional delays that may be introduced by communication protocols, routing, encryptions, data transformation, etc.
