Multipont WAN Latency Emulator
Integrated BGP Router
NEW Support for 10GbE or 1GbE
The BGP WAN Delay Emulator with integrated Quagga Router. The Border Gateway Protocol or BGP is at the core of the modern Internet. Large corporate and government enterprise networks are increasing their use of BGP to interconnect different administrative and country specific regions. This geographic span adds further to the complexity of a BGP network when calculating and planning for network latency. Network design engineers need a reliable and cost effective means to test the routers’ ability to handle BGP transactions accurately while simulating network latency with their applications
The BGP-EDS Ethernet delay simulator is a product used to apply traffic rules on packets fl owing out of the egress port for the intended packets matching source address and destination address. Dynamic Routing protocols like BGP are used for the route and can be applied to an Interior Gateway Network as well as an Exterior Gateway Network.
The user can specify the source and destination IP addresses either as a single IP or with the subnet mask (CIDR Addresses) for which the traffi c rules apply as a whole. The BGP-EDS system acts as a BGP router by which it chooses the best and valid destination using a best path selection algorithm. Dynamic routing allows the router to take individual routing decisions for a network before routing and thus reduces the overhead for a network engineer. The product is dynamic enough to support and scale a multiple number of 10/100/1000 copper or fiber interfaces.
The BGP-EDS allows user to perform network bandwidth and delay simulation (simulate slow/congested links between nodes) on any connection from device to any remote node on the local LAN or remote over Internet. The BGP-EDS network delay simulator is meant to provide a real experience of a Wide Area Network, during application development testing over a LAN environment. Users can install the BGP-EDS at nodes where performance related development and testing is required. Network characteristics such as Network delay, Packet loss, Packet corruption, Disconnections, Packet re-ordering, Jitter, etc. would only apply to connections according to fi lter criteria concerning source and destination IP addresses
The BGP-EDS is managed via an integrated Graphical User Interface(GUI) with security provisions and restrictions for multiple users. The unit is housed in a sturdy 2U front load enclosure with an integrated 90-240V 50/60Hz power supply.
