Ethernet LAN and WAN Simulator

The IPNetSim™ emulates a WAN (wide area network) link between two local networks. It can be used to test IP end point devices such as Gateways, IADs, IP phones, Soft phones, and so on for voice, fax, data, or multimedia transmission over IP.

Gaithersburg, Maryland (PRWEB) May 23, 2013

GL Communications Inc. a leader in providing PC-based test, analysis and simulation products and consulting services to the worldwide telecommunications industry, announced today its enhanced Ethernet LAN and WAN Simulation Equipment.

Speaking to media persons, Mr. Jagdish Vadalia Senior Manager for Product Development of the Company said, “GL has recently enhanced its LAN and WAN emulation equipment IPNetSim™ which offers various impairment simulations for testing real-time IP network applications. And it can simulate various network conditions such as network latency, network delay variation (jitter), attenuation, packet errors, bit errors and other network impairments. Impairments can be independently applied to either or both directions.”

He added, “IPNetSim™ models are available at varying capacities from 100 Mbps copper or SFP, 1 Gbps 8 Gbps Copper or SFP, or up to 40 Gbps with Dual Rate 1 Gbps/10 Gbps SFP+ interfaces. The IPNetSim™ with the 1Gbps (IPN400) configuration offers 8 Gigabit Ethernet port (8 RJ-45 copper, 8 SFP, or 4 of each), with an Max. Aggregate Throughput of 8, 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.

The new IPNetSim™ IPN600 series (IPN601 -1 Gbps Model / IPN610 - 10 Gbps Model ) offers 1 or 10 Gbps dual rate capability with four dual rate 1/10 Gbps SFP+ ports, supporting both 10 Gbps SFP+ and 1 Gbps SFP. With a capacity of up to 4 or 40 Gbps, the IPNetSim™ IPN600 series Network Emulator can simulate two separate 10 Gbps (or 4 Gbps) full-duplex links.

GL also provides handheld variation of IPNetSim™, IPNetSim™ Handheld, which is a portable battery operated instrument that can simulate the real-time IP and Carrier Ethernet network dynamics by means of hardware controlled packet delay, loss, jitter, errors, bandwidth limitations, congestion, and duplication.”

Mr.Vadalia further added, “The IPNetSim™ emulates a WAN (wide area network) link between two local networks. It can be used to test IP end point devices such as Gateways, IADs, IP phones, Soft phones, and so on for voice, fax, data, or multimedia transmission over IP. 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.”
