RADCOM Introduces VoIP Emulation and Measurement Solution
RADCOM has announced the introduction of NetSim, its emulation and measurement solution for VoIP, videoconferencing and eCommerce applications. The system is designed to create network environments in which the quality and grade of service delivered by VoIP devices and/or applications under development are measured against the stress levels of real-world network conditions. It emulates the erratic behavior of WAN links and the Internet by introducing impairments such as latency, jitter, out-of sequence errors and packet loss to assess the effect on Internet or Intranet based applications. The product features the ability to simulate delay according to various probability distributions or customized, user-defined histograms, and represent bursty network behavior with advanced packet loss algorithms. It also provides fine-grain control of the emulated environment by allowing for separate definition parameters for jitter and latency. In addition, the system enables user-defined link speed and buffer size parameters as well as emulation of different network behaviors in each direction of a point-to-point link.
