Network Simulation is a technique using which developers can model the nature of a network and interactions between different network entities. This simulation is performed with the help of a Network Simulator. Network simulator software helps in the analysis of complex networks that cannot be understood using traditional analytical methods. If you are looking for the perfect network simulator, then the MIMIC Simulator Suite developed by Gambit Communications is what you need. It is the one stop shop for all your simulation needs.
Gambit Communications specializes in the development of network, server and storage simulation tools. These tools are designed to enhance productivity and reduce development time and cost. Launched in 1997, the MIMIC Simulator Suite is the flagship product of the firm. The simulator can be configured according to different internet protocols like SNMP, Web (REST/SOAP), Telnet/SSH, NetFlow, IPMI/RedFish etc. The simulator can be customized according to the customer’s demands. Over the years, Gambit Communications has provided its services to numerous MNC’s and international brands.
The MIMIC Simulator Suite consists of the following simulators:
1. SNMP Simulator.
2. NetFlow Simulator.
3. sFlow Simulator.
4. Web Simulator.
5. IoT Simulator.
6. MQTT Simulator.
7. IOS Simulator.
8. JUNOS Simulator.
9. Server Simulator.
10. Wireless Simulator.
11. Redfish Simulator.
12. IPMI Simulator.
13. Cable Modem Simulator.
With the help of the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Simulator of the MIMIC Simulator you can create a network of up to 10000 devices. The application lets create a variety of device configurations. The device can have any number of public or private MIBs. The user can also generate SNMP Traps to simulate disaster scenarios.
The SNMP Simulator mimics actual devices. Each device has its ownIPv6 address, independent SNMPv1 strings and uptime notion. The devices can be configured at run-time. The user can choose either an individual configuration or a collective configuration. The MIMIC Discovery Wizard lets you record your production tests and simulate them. The MIMIC MIB Wizard helps you compile multiple SNMP MIBs in any order.
Some features of the MIMIC SNMP Simulator are briefly described below:
Multiple Devices in One Unit: Users can simulate up to 100,000 devices, each with an individual IP address, function and uptime notion.
Customized Simulation: Users can select from a wide range of pre-compiled MIBs and build any network simulation.
Device Configuration: Users can choose to configure the devices individually or collectively.
Extensible Environment: MIBs can be added to the simulation by compiling it with MIMIC MIB Wizard.
Real Time Modifiable Solutions: Simulations can be paused, inspected for errors and resumed. The MIB Browser helps you manipulate each device individually.

Gambit Communications has also developed a MIMIC Virtual Lab to improve network management in enterprises.The virtual labs developed by Gambit Communications are Enterprise Lab,CCNA Lab, Cloud-Online Lab and BSCI Lab. The firm has also developed an iCCNALab for iPhone users. In addition to network simulation and management tools, the firm also offers training courses. These courses cover Set-up,installation, introduction and advanced operations with the MIMIC Simulator Suite.
