GL's new IPNetSim is a multi-stream IP WAN emulator

GL Communications Inc. is releasing its new multi-stream IP WAN emulator referred to as IPNetSim.

"IPNetSim emulates an IP network with access to 10 Gbps full duplex link or a 10/100/1000 Mbps full duplex link. For each direction, incoming traffic can be identified into separate user defined streams (up to 16 streams for 1 Gbps pipe and up to 4 streams for 10 Gbps pipe). These user defined streams can be modified to simulate network impairments," said Jagdish Vadalia, a senior manager for product development at GL, in a statement.

IPNetSim has 4 ports, of which 2 ports support 10/100/1000 Mbps in either Electrical or Optical mode, emulating a 1 Gbps full duplex pipe. The optical mode supports only 1000 Mbps using SFPs enabling testing on optical fiber. The other two ports on the unit support 10 Gbps using 10 Gbps SFP+s.

IPNetSim 1Gbps IPN501 appliance is a 1U rack-mount hardware unit while IPNetSim 1Gbps IPN505 is a portable touch-screen handheld unit with the same features as IPN501. Release
