VirtualNet GE 1G Ethernet Network Emulator

Network / Cloud Emulator Testbed

VirtualNet GE is a high-performance Ethernet network emulator (also known as a WAN Emulator or Cloud Emulator) that replicates real-world Ethernet or IP network effects (or impairments) such as latency (delay) and errors on user traffic. VirtualNet GE allows you to perform extensive pre- and post-deployment testing of your products and services - all in a completely user-controlled manner.

With VirtualNet GE, your test results will not depend on the type of traffic being tested. This WAN emulator delivers full line-rate performance for 10/100/1G Ethernet traffic not only at all frame sizes but also regardless of the impairment settings applied by the user.

The only impairments that the user will ever see are the ones that the user has applied.

The VirtualNet GE Ethernet network emulator is configured in-line as shown in the diagram and is transparent to the environment. It is also equipped with an intuitive and easy to use GUI interface and a very powerful TCL-based CLI to aid in configuration and testing. Together, these features make the VirtualNet GE network emulator a simple addition to your existing test environment, or to any new testbed.

Ultimately, the VirtualNet GE Ethernet WAN emulator quickly and easily delivers the industry's greatest performance and precision to ensure that your tests, and your results, are repeatable and reliable.

Targeted Impairments (including burst and duration)

Target a specific frame using protocol and field drop downs

Protocol Stack Parsing

Parses various protocol stacks and also identifies key fields in each protocol layer
  • Use one of the included protocols such as VLAN, MPLS, IPV4, IPV6, TCP, UCP
  • Custom protocol support

True Single Chassis Multi-User AND Simultaneous 1G / 10G Operation

Simultaneous operation (single Ethernet network emulator chassis) on:
  • Eight (8) 1G ports, or
  • Four (4) 1G ports + two (2) 10G ports

Dynamic impairments

Switch from one set of conditions to another on a single frame boundary without creating random/unintended intermediate network conditions

Ease of Use

VirtualNet GE 10/100/1G Ethernet network emulator has an intuitive and easy to use GUI interface as well as a well documented TCL based CLI for test automation.
