MIMIC Simulator Suite also provides significant functionality and usability enhancements that bolster scalability to 100,000 devices.

"We have been using MIMIC SNMP and Web Simulator in our Solution Testing for Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS) for more than a year," said Michael Lammon, Software Engineer, HCBU System Test Team Lead at Cisco. "MIMIC made a complex task of testing many applications related to this solution, in variety of scenarios much easier. Without MIMIC it would have been very hard for us to execute our scale testing for HCS Customer On-Boarding. I specifically liked Gambit's excellent support. Working with our new HCS solution we have been counting on Gambit to deliver us a simulated solution and Gambit continues to provide that."

"With proliferation of unified communication and virtualization equipment within network infrastructure, organizations are struggling with the cost and inefficiency of managing datacenters. Gambit provides the premier solution that delivers all the benefits of converged infrastructure simulation, such as manageability, performance, scalability and better disaster planning," said Uwe Zimmermann, President of Gambit Communications. "The new addition of Web Simulator to MIMIC Simulator Suite has simplified testing the quality of network and web applications."

Highlights from the latest MIMIC Simulator:

  • MIMIC Web Simulator - Create hundreds of simulated web servers (SOAP, REST, XML) to easily develop and test your web clients, management and monitoring products;
  • MIMIC SNMP Simulator - Significant performance improvements across the board to scale up to 100,000 devices;
  • MIMIC NetFlow Simulator - NetFlow wizard now supports Configurable NetFlow information elements. With this you can now simulate any type of flow element. There is also a substantial Improvement in NetFlow generation rate to generate 2M flows/second;
  • MIMIC sFlow Simulator - with the performance improvements you can now generate flows in milliseconds;
  • MIMIC IPMI Simulator has a new configuration Wizard to customize IPMI responses;
  • Discovery Wizard - Additional discovery using OSPF and LLDP MIB tables to cover a larger network;
  • Versatile network and device library with many more devices, MIBs and networks
