By introducing impairments into incline traffic users can emulate real-world network environments, verify system performance, reproduce customer issues, and perform functional testing.
Examples of impairments that can be generated:
The MGA2510 provides a simple intuitive browser based user interface that is served up from the system without any the need for any software installation. Real-time statistics, alarms and graphical analysis is provided though the GUI, and a full RESTful API is available allowing complete automation capability, further enhancing the productivity and facilitating integration with other development and testing tools.
Aukua MGA2510 Ethernet Network Impairment Emulators, also called WAN Emulators, are used to precisely recreate the delay, congestion, and packet or link impairments found in all real-world data and storage networks. Aukua Network Impairment Emulators are easy to use, provide a repeatable test methodology and directly help reduce risk and avoid business interruptions.
Data rates from 10Mbps to 10Gbps Ethernet, including the new 2.5Gbps and 5Gbps Ethernet rates (IEEE 802.3bz) and Automotive Ethernet (IEEE 802.3bp/bw) are supported. The MGA2510 is the first network emulator to support native copper 10GBASE-T interfaces, eliminating the need for complex and troublesome media converters. The powerful hardware-based architecture delivers true line-rate performance regardless of configuration as well as unmatched nanosecond precision delay generation.
No, through the purchase of optional licenses the MGA2510 can function as a Network Generator or/and an inline Analyser capable of capturing traffic at wire speed up to 10Gb/s
Yes, the MGA2510 uses a modern RESTful API using standard HTTP requests with data in a standard JSON format for easy parsing and readability. It is possible to access and automate the MGA210 through different scripting languages such as Python, Tcl and Curl.
