Albedo Net.Storm is an FPGA based Network Emulator for generating IP/UDP/TCP impairments on GbE interfaces. Ideal for users who wish to engineer and test applications, devices and protocols to test their tolerance and operation when subjected to packet delay, jitter, loss, duplication, reordering, error and bandwidth variations.
With Net.Storm inserted between two Ethernet segments in pass through mode, Net.Storm is able to insert impairments independently in either direction. Up to 16 separate flows can have impairments defined through the use of filters, each filter using different criteria including MAC, IP, TCP/UDP or User Mask.
Net.Storm has the ability to replicate complex network dynamics by means of modifying Bandwidth and QoS parameters. Net.Storm is an invaluable tool for IP equipment manufacturers, R&D departments, Network Operators, ISP and Triple Play service providers that test and verify a wide variety of projects.
As well as Net.Storm being available as a battery powered hand-held appliance, it is also available in a 1U rack mount format.
Features and Benefits
16 Hardware filters on Port A and Port B allow you to match flows on incoming traffic and trigger impairment actions.
When flows have been matched to triggers up to 16 different impairment actions can be initiated, actions can contain multiple impairments.
Full Remote control of Net.Storm is possible through VNC client, test results and configuration files can be accessed through a Web browser.
