A Leader in Innovation

SMPTE 2110 Monitoring

Network Emulators

PacketStorm Communications

PacketStorm Communications, Inc. was founded in November 1998 by a group of engineers from the prestigious Bell Laboratories.

PacketStorm develops, manufactures, and supports high end testing solutions for the Internet Protocol (IP) communications market. PacketStorm is the market leader for advanced IP Network Emulators which was verified by the industry by winning an Emmy Award. In addition, PacketStorm has a full line of test equipment designed for SMPTE 2110 monitoring and other video applications. PacketStorm sells test solutions through a global network of independent representatives and international distributors.

SMPTE 2110 Monitoring

New VIP Monitor: Media over IP

The latest PacketStorm product for video applications is the VIP Monitor. The VIP Monitor ensures ST 2110 flows (video, audio, ancillary) are within the SMPTE 2110 specifications. If flows are detected to be non-conforming then alarms are generated and logged.

Network Emulators

New 100G Network Emulators

The Packet Storm 8XG, Packet Storm XXG, and Hurricane VII network emulators are 100G network emulators designed for all applications. The 8XG and Hurricane VII support 10G, 25G, and 100G while the XXG supports 10G, 25G, 40G, 50G, and 100G. The NEW Hurricane VII is our latest and most cost effective 100G network emulator on the market. The 8XG and XXG support full line rate and high precision accuracy.  The XXG supports WAN and long latency applications. The 8XG is the only 100G network emulator that has the required features for general WAN emulation and media over IP applications. If media (video and audio) features are not required today, they can be added via an electronic upgrade and thereby protect your investment for the future.  PacketStorm has been the leader in network emulation for over 20 years and looking forward to supporting our customers for the next 20 years.

Network Bandwidth Simulation

Network Emulation

Network emulation is a technique used to simulate the behavior of computer networks in a controlled and reproducible environment. It is often used in the development, testing, and deployment of network applications and devices to ensure their reliability, performance, and security before they are released to end-users.
Network emulation involves replicating the network conditions that a device or application will encounter in the real world, such as varying levels of latency, packet loss, and bandwidth limitations. This can be achieved through specialized software or hardware devices that are designed to introduce these network conditions and measure the impact on the device or application being tested.
One of the main advantages of network emulation is that it enables developers and network engineers to test the behavior of their products under different network scenarios without having to physically recreate those scenarios in a real-world environment. This can save time and resources, and also make it easier to identify and address potential issues early in the development process.
Another benefit of network emulation is that it allows for the testing of applications and devices in a safe and isolated environment, without the risk of causing disruption or downtime on a live network. This can be particularly important for mission-critical applications and systems, where any downtime or performance degradation can have significant consequences.
Network emulation can also be used to test the effectiveness of network security measures, such as firewalls and intrusion detection systems, by simulating different types of attacks and monitoring their impact on the network.
In summary, network emulation is a powerful tool for testing and validating the performance, reliability, and security of network applications and devices. By replicating real-world network conditions in a controlled environment, it enables developers and network engineers to identify and address potential issues before they impact end-users, and to ensure that their products perform optimally under a variety of network scenarios.

Network Simulation

Network simulation is the process of creating a virtual model of a computer network and analyzing its behavior under different conditions. It is an essential tool for network engineers, researchers, and educators who want to test the performance of a network or experiment with different network configurations.
In network simulation, software is used to create a virtual network that mimics the behavior of a real network. The virtual network can be used to test the performance of different network protocols, analyze the impact of network traffic on the network, and evaluate the effectiveness of network security measures.
One of the key benefits of network simulation is the ability to test network behavior under different conditions. This allows network engineers to evaluate the network’s performance in a controlled environment and make informed decisions about network configuration, optimization, and troubleshooting.
Network simulation can also be used to model complex network topologies that are difficult or impossible to replicate in a physical environment. For example, simulating a large-scale wireless sensor network can help researchers analyze the network’s behavior in different environmental conditions and identify potential performance bottlenecks.
Another advantage of network simulation is that it can be used to test network behavior without disrupting the production network. This reduces the risk of downtime or other issues that could negatively impact business operations.
In summary, network simulation is an important tool for network engineers, researchers, and educators who want to evaluate the performance of a network under different conditions. By creating a virtual network model, network simulation enables users to test network behavior, analyze network traffic, and evaluate the effectiveness of network configurations and security measures.
