MIMIC Simulator Suite

MIMIC Simulator creates a real world lab environment, with 50,000 devices, at a fraction of the cost of physical equipment. It provides an interactive hands-on lab for quality assurance, development, sales presentation, evaluation, deployment and training of enterprise management applications. Users create a customizable virtual environment populated with simulated routers, hubs, switches, WiFi/WiMAX/LTE devices, probes, cable modems, servers and workstations.

The MIMIC Simulator suite includes:

Applications

This versatile suite of software tools is commonly used in:

  • Development and Testing: Management application developers can implement their products quickly and test reliably.
  • Evaluation: Enterprises can evaluate the suitability of applications with anticipated failure and growth scenarios, or qualify purchases before deployment.
  • Trade Shows: Marketing can setup powerful "live" demonstrations at trade shows.
  • Sales Demos: Sales can tailor presentations to the individual customer's environment.
  • Training Environments: Realistic training scenarios can explore all possible cases. Training environment can be portable rather than based on the classroom.

Features

The MIMIC Simulator standard package comes with many tools, wizards, ready-to-go libraries and APIs.

Tools
  • MIMICView - User friendly GUI to manipulate the simulations
  • MIMIC Simulator - Allows the simulation of an enterprise network on a workstation
  • MIMIC Recorder - Captures a "snapshot" of the device/network and creates the simulations
  • MIMIC Compiler - Compiles any SMI-based MIB
  • MIMIC Shell - Tcl-based command-line interface

Wizards 
MIMIC Wizards provide a user-friendly way to accomplish complex tasks.

  • Discovery Wizard - Records large networks
  • Snapshot Wizard - Takes multiple snapshots of a device over time to create more realistic simulations
  • Trap Wizard - Captures trap sequences and replays them in the simulation
  • Simulation Wizard - Creates simulations for devices under development
  • Topology Wizard - Customizes different network topologies
  • MIB Wizard - Imports and compiles new MIBs
  • Update Wizard - Updates software/data over the Internet

Libraries 
MIMIC is pre-packaged with data to quickly setup out-of-the-box virtual labs. It ships with large libraries of simulated devices, networks, and MIBs from the leading networking companies.

APIs 
You can customize simulations using Tcl, C++, Java and Perl languages to tap in to the full power of the simulator.

Supported Platforms: Windows®, Solaris, Linux and Amazon Cloud.
