Ethernet, IP, WAN Network Emulator

IPNetSim™ Handheld is a 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.

Gaithersburg,Maryland (PRWEB) May 07, 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, IP, WAN Network Emulator.

Speaking to media persons, Mr. Vijay Kulkarni CEO of the company said, “GL's enhanced IPNetSim™ Handheld is a hand-held 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. IPNetSim™ Handheld offers to manage network behaviors of up to 1 Gbps rates with accuracy always better than 1ms.”

He added, “Enhanced IPNetSim™ Handheld is an invaluable tool for IP equipment manufacturers, R&D departments, Network Operators, ISP and Triple Play service providers that test and verify a wide variety of projects to determine whether a network application or device is appropriate for operation in such networks. It is equipped with hardware based impairments generator, and dual GbE ports to emulate the dynamics of real Ethernet/IP networks.”

Main Features

·Shape and manage up to 16 independent flows of traffic with predefined QoS.
·Impairment generation on each flow including Latency, Packet Loss, Duplication, Delay, Jitter
·Impairments as per ITU-T Y.1541 standard
·Jumbo frames support up to 17 kBytes
·Traffic shaping and Traffic Policing
·Events: Packet loss, delay, error, duplication, jitter, bandwidth limitations, and congestion,
·Events are implemented at Ethernet layer
·Users can place errors within IP protocols or edit the Ethernet/IP fields
·Customizable filters defined by field contents on Ethernet, IP, UDP and TCP headers
·Configurable, either deterministic or random, time delays can be inserted in every filter
·Ability to replicate complex network dynamic by means of modifying Bandwidth and QoS parameters
·Capable of processing and computing statistics over fractions of the Ethernet traffic meeting specific conditions
·Detailed event log window with per flow viewing of the events.
·Remote access via VNC

Applications:

·Verify the tolerance and the quality of video, audio or data applications either working in development laboratories or directly connected to commercial networks
·Test QoS factors of Multi-play applications including critical Data Access, Video Streaming, Internet, VoIP, IMS, HDTV, and IPTV
·Test routers, switches, VoIP handsets, VoIP PBXs, set-top boxes, and VoD servers
·Evaluate the stability of switches and routers under static or dynamic traffic load conditions over minutes, hours ordays.
·Quality of Service (QoS), Quality of Experience (QoE) testing
·Satellite communications
·Submarine links
