MIMIC simulated devices respond to SNMPv1, SNMPv2C, SNMPv3, Cisco IOS, IPMI, DHCP, TFTP, MGCP and Telnet protocols. MIMIC ships with a large number of pre-compiled MIBs, networks and devices from the leading networking companies. A suite of predefined scenarios is provided to investigate all the possibilities you can face in your mission-critical environment.

For example, realistic behavior can be modeled for a range of traffic conditions over a shorter period of time. Or, a constant simulation can be used for automated regression testing.

The MIMIC Recorder can be used to record any existing network and simulate it.

The most common uses of this versatile suite are:

  • Evaluation: Enterprises can evaluate the new version of HP Openview with anticipated failure and growth scenarios or qualify purchases before deployment.
  • Training Environments: Enterprises can train new staff on HP Openview without disturbing the production network.
  • Development and Testing: Configuration and additional development on HP Openview can be done quickly and test reliably by network engineers.
  • Trade Shows: Marketing can setup powerful "live" demonstrations at trade shows.
  • Sales Demos: Sales can tailor presentations to the individual customer's environment.

  • + Functional details

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

  • + Business problem

    MIMIC Simulator provides the cost savings a factor of up to 1,000.

    To buy a small router can cost anywhere from $400 to $1000.

    If need about 100 of those devices, it can cost about $40,000 to $100,000.

    This number can go up significantly depending on the size of routers. This doesn't include the space, connections and cooling costs.

    Instead you can get MIMIC simulator to do all these at a fraction of the price.

  • + Business opportunity

    Immediate Cost Savings:* No need to buy extra laboratory equipment (hardware, agents, software). The cost factor of lab equipment is reduced by a factor of up to 1,000. * Leverage existing laboratory equipment by running MIMIC alongside the real device. Instead of buying ten of the same devices, buy one real device and simulate the remaining nine.* Reduced support costs for test equipment. Rather than supporting different types of devices, it is only necessary to support MIMIC on industry-standard hardware (Intel-based PCs or Sun Sparc).* Time savings dramatically impact labor costs, especially early in the development cycle. MIMIC can be employed in the prototyping and design stages. It only took us minutes to setup the simulations used to demo the Applications on this site.* Allows instantaneous hypothetical growth scenarios with minimal additional expense. Time can be fast-forwarded in MIMIC with a few mouse-clicks and keystrokes. Agents can easily be cloned. This helps in realistic future resource planning.

Reduced Setups and Maintenance:

    * No need for multiple network connections, power supplies, etc. Physical lab space and infrastructure requirements are reduced 100-fold.* No need to set up WAN links. MIMIC simulates network delay and runs with most network interface cards. It even runs over PPP on a serial line.

    Complete Evaluation & Testing:* Test management applications with a wide variety of agents instead of just one.* Test multiple versions of each device simultaneously. * Configure pathological conditions easily in order to investigate even the trickiest configurations.*Reliable Test Environment

  • + Competitive advantage

    The real lab cost a lot, it needs setup and maintenance and it is shared most of the time. If it is only used for testing then simulation is a better alternative. You can get MIMIC Simulator at a fraction of the price, there is no need to worry about breaking anything and can save multiple configurations so it's easy to setup.
