Gaithersburg, Maryland (PRWEB) June 09, 2012
GL Communications Inc. a leader in providing PC-based test, analysis and simulation products and consulting services to the worldwide telecommunications industry, conveyed today the availability of its product IPNetSim™ - IP Network/WAN Emulator.
Speaking to media persons, Mr. Jagdish Vadalia Senior Manager said, ” The IPNetSim™ is an "unbelievably" important and simple to use tool that simulates an entire IP Network in one box. Simulate delay, jitter, packet loss, packet errors, bandwidth restrictions, and more.”
He added, “IPNetSim™ simulates all the conditions encountered in a real-time such as network latency, network delay variation (jitter), bandwidth, congestion, packet errors, bit errors and other network impairments. Impairments can be independently applied to either or both directions. IPNetSim™ models are available at varying capacities from 100 Mbps copper, 1 Gbps Ethernet, up to 4 Gbps Ethernet/SFP, or up to 40 Gbps with Dual Rate 1 Gbps/10 Gbps SFP+ interfaces.”
Mr. Vadalia further added, “The IPNetSim™ with the 1Gbps option can emulate up to 4 separate individual 1 Gbps interfaces simultaneously for an aggregate throughput of 4 Gbps, making it ideal for both multi-link configurations and multi-user labs. The compact 1U-sized appliance includes both copper and modular fiber/copper Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. And it offers an efficient and economical way to emulate terrestrial, wireless, internet, satellite, or private network links to validate and troubleshoot networks and applications under a spectrum of real-world conditions. Through an intuitive, browser-based graphical interface, you can install the IPNetSim™ and begin testing within minutes.”
·Easy to Use – no software, plug and play – No software required to install. Just plug in the Ethernet cables and specify the link conditions for emulation. The Ajax-based GUI combines the responsiveness of an application with the convenience of a standard Web browser interface.
·Remote access via Ethernet management port
·Bandwidths up to 100 Mbps or 1 Gbps – Emulate WAN bandwidths of up to 100 Mbps or up to 1 Gbps depending on the product type. With IPN400, WAN bandwidth can be emulated up to 1 Gbps in each direction per link, and across 4 separate links to an aggregate of 4 Gbps With a packet-processing rate of 250,000 packets per second & higher, the IPNetSim™ can easily handle 45 Mbps of 64-byte packets in each direction.
·Up to 4 Interfaces with the IPN400: - With the ability to emulate 4 separate, independent links, the IPN400 is a compact and cost-effective alternative to multiple WAN emulation appliances. Independent pairs of Ethernet interfaces for each link make configuration of multiple links as easy as a single link.
·Delay from 1 ms to 10 seconds – perfect for satellite delay modeling – Emulate latency in constant, normal or uniform distribution in either direction starting from 1ms up to 10secs.
·Precise Error Insertion – Emulate bit error rates as low as 1x10-14. Specified loss can be packet loss rate, bit error rate, or both.
·Congestion Emulation - Determine the effect of congestion on bandwidth and jitter-sensitive applications by specifying the background link utilization and its burstiness.
·Unique Scheduler for modeling different error scenarios – IPNetSim™ Scheduler allows any combination of emulation parameters to vary over time, making link outages, variable bandwidths links, route flapping, satellite rain fade, and wireless interference with high-flexibility.
.IPNetSim™ can automatically adjust to the link conditions between specified end states.
·Traffic Monitor for visibility into traffic flow through the box – Provides a visual display of the current traffic conditions, including throughput graphs, link statistics. Up to 24 hours of statistics history can also be downloaded for analysis.
·Unsurpassed precision – Simulates link bandwidth with microseconds resolution and performs bit error rate probability calculations with 256-bit values to ensure correct, precise, and accurate error distribution
·Bridging or Routing Modes - IPNetSim™ can be configured as a bridge or router, which makes it easy to install in a wide variety of network environment.
·Command Line Interface for Automated testing – Series of tests can be run using IPNetSim™ scheduler or the command line interface, which makes IPNetSim™ ideal for automated product testing.
·Match real link behaviour – adjustable framing overhead allows accurate emulation of any layer. Queuing delay can be modeled with queues set in packets, bytes, or milliseconds to match actual WAN hardware
·Advanced emulation parameters – Verify that applications and networking equipment properly handle anomalous packet reordering and duplication conditions without inducing stability or performance problems. Adjust the framing overhead and maximum queue depth to match real link behaviour.
·Copper and Fiber Gigabit Ethernet interfaces – Connect using either copper or modular fiber/copper Gigabit Ethernet interfaces using IPNetSim™ 1 Gbps series. The interfaces make it easy to simulate a WAN without routers, or other costly equipments.
