Network Planning Software
In modern warfare, the network is the battlefield.
Given what’s at stake, it’s critical that network
designs, including software-, hardware-, human,
and Internet-in-the-loop behavior, be examined
and understood in the context of the environment
they will need to survive in.
VisNet: Visualize. Design. Optimize.
Defense is a new network planning tool that combines
the realism and ease of a Google Earth™ type visualization
with ultra-high fidelity network simulation. VisNet
enables non-cyberspecialist users to view and
quickly grasp the mechanics of the network, then
easily construct simulated networks for operations
planning and review. No network protocol knowledge
is needed; users just click-and-drag components
from a pre-populated list of devices and applications.
technical complexities of network construction
are stripped out for ease of use by non-technical
teams. Yet the breakthrough power of VisNet is
that it is based on the world’s most advanced
network simulation engine, making it possible
for viewers to open and view scenarios with tens,
hundreds, or thousands of devices.
VisNet Defense enables technical and non-technical
teams to collaborate on network design, development,
and deployment using a common set of simulation
models and device configurations. Scenario files
can be directly output to advanced simulation
and emulation tools for later-stage test, evaluation,
Powerful GIS and Network Visualization
VisNet incorporates the same computing technology
that powers Scalable Network Technologies’ QualNet®
and EXata® software. The network simulation engine
in VisNet accurately represents network devices,
transmitters, antennas, terrestrial characteristics,
and human interactions-- at real time speed. Because
of SNT’s super-efficient parallel kernel, VisNet
can support high fidelity network models while
still maintaining real-time speed, even in large-scale
