The latest version of network simulation product MIMIC Simulator Suite 11.0 is now available from Gambit Communications. The upgraded product from the network and SNMP simulation tool provider delivers NetFlow Simulator to complete evaluation and troubleshooting of flow monitoring, management, and analysis applications.
The company calls the MIMIC Simulator Suite’s capabilities “a major breakthrough in simulation technology.” "MIMIC Simulator is a way for organizations to test the quality, scalability, and performance of their applications, without the need to invest in building large physical testing facilities. With its updated support for NetFlow simulation and significantly increased simulation of up to 50,000 devices, IT staffs can test applications with simulated network traffic flows and device loading conditions that more closely resemble the demanding scalability requirements of their production environment,” said Audrey Rasmussen, partner and principal analyst at Ptak, Noel and Associates in a press release.
She added, “Tools like MIMIC Simulator enable IT organizations to test their networks for business-readiness, without putting their production environments at risk."
MIMIC is the engine behind Gambit's 24/7 SaaS offering for Cisco (News - Alert) CCNA practice labs (MIMIC Virtual Lab Cloud) — with the ability to bolster scalability to 50,000 devices, Cisco training organizations are able to provide thousands of CCNA lab pods running simultaneously.
Gambit Communications emphasized that the MIMIC Simulator helps evaluate and test network management applications by simplifying scalable lab, detailed network component diagnostics, dynamic network update, and protocol support.
"This latest release delivers the features and capabilities that development and QA teams need to ensure the scalability and performance of their applications, backed up by the value and reliability for which MIMIC solutions are known," added Uwe Zimmermann, president of Gambit.
