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:


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.


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

  • 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

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

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.

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.
