GL Unveils IPNetSim IPN600 Series

SipTrunkingReport Contributor

GL Communications, Inc. recently unveiled its latest offering, the IPNetSim or IPN600 Series. The IPNetSim is an IP/WAN Network Simulator with highly developed multi-link emulation, capable of supporting a maximum of 10 Gbps rates.

“IPNetSim is an IP network simulator that simulates impairments commonly found in IP Networks, such as bandwidth constriction, congestion, packet jitter, packet delay, packet bit errors, packet loss and other conditions,” said Vijay Kulkarni, CEO at GL Communications. “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.”

According to Kulkarni, the IPN600 series provides one or 10 Gbps multirate capability, with four, one or 10 Gbps SFP+ ports. The IPNetSim can support 10 Gbps SFP+ and 1 Gbps SFP.

The IPNetSim IPN600 series Network Emulators, with a capacity of maximum four or 40 Gbps, can replicate two separate 10 Gbps or four Gbps full-duplex associations.

Relative to IPNetSim series’ IPN010, IPN100, and IPN400, the IPN600 has a different number of paths utilized by the Emulator Engines (EE) to support each pair of interfaces. While the lower series includes one path for each EE, the higher series can have a maximum of 15 paths per EE.

“The IPNetSim network emulator is usually configured through the browser-based IPNetSim GUI,” said Kulkarni. “In addition to the GUI, the IPNetSim network emulator includes a command line interface (CLI) that can be accessed via a serial console port or over the network using Telnet or SSH. The CLI can be used to set the IP address of the management interface if the GUI is not accessible over the network, and to modify emulated link conditions for integration with scripting and test automation tools."

According to Kulkarni, a handheld version of IPNetSim is also available from the company. The instantaneous IP and Carrier Ethernet network dynamics can be replicated with the moveable battery operated instrument through hardware controlled packet delay, loss, jitter, errors, bandwidth limitations, congestion and duplication.

Network behaviors of maximum one Gbps rates, with accuracy of less than 1ms, can be administered by IPNetSim Handheld.
