8XG WAN Emulation & Network Simulation

The PacketStorm8XG IP network emulator provides WAN emulation and network simulation. The PacketStorm8XG emulates any network condition in a repeatable and controllable lab setting. To re-create any network condition, the emulator can impair IP and non-IP traffic, provide dynamic, time-varying impairments, and use a fully independent and flexible GUI architecture.


  • Interfaces up to 100 Gbps
  • Easy-to-use GUI
  • Encompassing Impairments
  • Extensive Modifiers
  • Advanced Filtering
  • Time-Varying Emulation
  • SMPTE FEC Video Impairments
  • On-the-Fly Impairment Changes
  • Statistics
  • Impair IP and non-IP traffic

8XG WAN Emulation & Network Simulation

The PacketStorm8XG is our high data rate and high precision network emulator. This network emulator can recreate network scenarios at line rate. Network emulation is implemented by using the following impairments: Delay, Jitter, Decimate, Drop, DropNOW, Reorder, Throttle, Duplicate, Burst Drop, Bit Error, RTP Sequence Drop, FEC Aware, and Active Video.

The PacketStorm8XG has a full selection of modifiers, filters, and statistics. Modifiers include: Source Address, Destination Address, DSCP, TTL, Protocol, Source Port, Destination Port, VLAN, MAC, Universal, and IPv6.  Filters include: Source Address, Destination Address, Source Port, Destination Port, Protocol, DSCP, VLAN, Universal, Bit Pattern, IPv6, RTP, FEC Aware, Active Video, and All Frames. Statistics include: Bandwidth, Delay, Loss, Bytes, and Packets.

Using the PacketStorm8XG is very easy. The user connects to the network emulator by using a web browser. Configuration settings such as filters, impairments, and modifiers are displayed on the top of the display. The bottom of the display contains the network links so that all of the network emulation parameters are displayed for ease of use. Once network emulation is started, statistics are displayed for every port.  Configuration settings can be stored and recalled. Configuration changes are done by enabling check boxes, entering the parameter value, and pressing the update button.  Lastly, dynamic network emulation can be implemented by making impairment parameter “changes-on-the-fly” or by setting up a dynamic profile before network emulation has started.
