Simulate Active directory slow replication

I have set up a Lab for an AD structure with multiple sites, two of the sites are pretended to be in London and Paris. I would like to mimic a replication latency for these sites.
I don't know if there is something to  be done at the switch level or something at the AD level to simulate the replication latency.

Any idea?

Thanks

Have you create a site link between London and Paris?
If you have you can go into AD and change the replication schedule to match what your schedule is on the production network (180 minutes is the default)
Thanks

You could use "TCMon" from the MS Resource kit to simulate a slow connection, packet loss etc.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

what Mike suggested was about replication schedule to delay the replication, not to simulate the slowliness of the link.

I download Resource kit and run TCMon, how do you use to simulate the slow link

To be frank I have never tested this tool before. I've just seen it in the res.kit.

Here are some links that might help:
