An IP Network Simulator

IPNetSim™ simulate all conditions encountered in real-time such as network latency, network delay variation (jitter), bandwidth congestion, packet loss, bit errors

GL Communications Inc. announced today the availability of IPNetSim™ - A "unbelievably" important and simple to use tool that simulates an entire IP Network in one box. Speaking to newsmen, Mr. Vijay Kulkarni CEO of the company said, “IPNetSim™ simulates IP networks. Interfaces for 100 Mbps copper to 4 (Four) 1 Gbps interfaces are available.”

He said, “IPNetSim™ simulates all conditions encountered in real-time such as network latency, network delay variation (jitter), bandwidth congestion, packet loss, bit errors and more and every 'lab' should have one.” He added, “Impairments can be independently applied to either or both directions.”

Mr. Kulkarni 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.”

Some of the Important Features

•Easy to Use – no software, plug and play
•Bandwidths from 10 Mbps to r 1 Gbps
•Up to 4 Interfaces with the IPN400
•Delay from 1 ms to 10 seconds – perfect for satellite delay modeling
•Precise Error Insertion
•Congestion Emulation
•Unique Scheduler for modeling different error scenarios
•Traffic Monitor for visibility into traffic flow through the box
•Bridge or Router Modes
•Command Line Interface
•Remote access via Ethernet management port

About GL Communications Inc.

Founded in 1986, GL Communications Inc. is a leading supplier of test, monitoring, and analysis equipment for TDM, Wireless, IP and VoIP networks. Unlike conventional test equipment, GL's test platforms provide visualization, capture, storage, and convenient features like portability, remotability, and scripting.

GL’s TDM Analysis & Emulation line of products includes T1, E1, T3, E3, OC-3, OC-12, STM-1, STM-4, analog four-wire, and analog two-wire interface cards, external portable pods, and complete system solutions. Capabilities include voiceband traffic analysis and emulation across all traffic types (voice, digits, tones, fax, modem), all protocols (ISDN, SS7, GR-303, Frame Relay, HDLC, V5.X, ATM, GSM, GPRS, LTE, etc.), and with capacities up to thousands of channels. Our newest products provide astonishing capacity and capture capability up to and including gigabit speeds.

GL’s VoIP and IP products generate / analyze thousands of calls and traffic simultaneously with traffic types such as frames, packets, voice files, digits, video, tones, noise, and fax. Almost all codecs are supported including G.711, G.729, AMR, EVRC-A,B,C, GSM, iSAC, and many more. Additional features include visual analysis, real-time listening, and recording. The product line also includes Ethernet / IP Testing capability that simulates and checks frame transport and throughput parameters of Ethernet and IP networks, including delay, errors and other impairments.

GL's Voice Quality Testing (VQT) product line complements all of GL's products. Using ITU-standard algorithms (PAMS, PSQM, and PESQ), GL's VQT provides a widely accepted solution for assessing voice quality in the telecom industry. Voice Quality Testing across multiple networks (T1, E1, T3, E3, OC-3, OC-12, VoIP, Wireless, and Landline) are all available.

GL’s Wireless Products perform protocol analysis and voice quality assessment on GSM, CDMA, UMTS, and LTE networks. Connections can be made to any wireless phone with automated call control, GPS mapping and real-time signal measurements.

GL’s Echo Canceller testing solutions provide the broadest range of simulation and analysis, including line and acoustic echo. GL’s compliance testing per G.168. G.167 and P.340 across TDM, IP, VoIP and Wireless networks is widely accepted in the industry.

GL’s wireless VQT solutions help assessing impairments to voice quality such as poor mobile phone quality, voice compression and decompression algorithms, delay, loss and gain in speech levels, noise, acoustic and landline echo, and other distortions are easily assessed and accurately measured.

GL’s Handheld data testers can test a wide variety of communications facilities and equipment including T1, fractional T1, E1, fractional E1, T3 and E3 modems, multiplexers, CSU, DSUs, T1 CSUs, DTUs, NTUs and TIUs and more. The testers provide convenience, economy, and portability for almost any interface, including RS232, RS-422, RS-530, X.21, T1, E1, T3, E3, and many others.

GL’s Network Surveillance and Monitoring products include Probes for TDM, IP, VoIP, ATM, and Wireless networks. An open standards based approach provides a scalable, feature rich, real-time access to network characteristics. Centralized or distributed access, efficient transport and database loading allow compatibility with 3rd party and standards based monitoring systems.
