JAR Technologies Shamrockspecialise in WAN emulation across the application development, testing and deployment phases. The emulators can accurately simulate all the 'real world' conditions across IP networks from the safety, control and repeatability of a test environment.
All the Shamrock emulators provide visibility early in the development life cycle of issues that will impact your application or data. Allowing issues to be mitigated without costly re-writes and recalls . This also gives the developers the ability to detect and correct network related issues before these become customer facing problems.
Shamrock Emulator Features
Being hardware based, coupled with the use of a Real Time Operating system, ensures best in class accuracy . They have the ability to accurately emulate all IP networks, which include:
- T1, E1, T3, E3, OC-3, ADSL, DSL, Xdsl, dial up
- GPRS, 2G, 3G, 4G, WiMax, Wi-Fi
- ROIP, VOIP, Satellite, Cloud
The Shamrock emulators are able to reproduce network conditions such as: Delay, Jitter, Data Loss, Corruption, Duplication, Bandwidth throttle, Data Sink, De-sequencing, Traffic Bursting and Fragmentation.
Advanced functionality include:
- Traffic filters (TCP, UDP)
- Traffic capture & replay
- Impair specific traffic flows based on IP or MAC address
- Bi-directional emulation
- Traffic generation
- Live reporting
- Wireshark integration
- Open XML for test automation
- Multiple simultaneous emulations
The Shamrock 100/2 provides precision emulation for users who require up to 100Mb of throughput (bi-directionally) for their emulations. Ideal for individual developers and testers, the 100/2 is a 2U rack mountable unit that is easily embedded in testing environments and comes pre-loaded with wizards and network maps so emulation can be undertaken in minutes.
Shamrock 1000 Series
The Shamrock 1000 series of WAN emulators provide 1 Gbps interfaces with either 2 or 4 network points. Their precision hardware and advanced feature sets ensure pinpoint accuracy of emulation and total control over your scenario’s parameters
The 1000 series provides total control for the user over their emulation, down to sub-millisecond accuracy. Perfect for ensuring application performance on the target network to significantly reduce the level of re-work and costs, the 1000 series can also be used to validate new networked technologies prior to expensive procurement and implementation. It can also capture live network traffic, analyse this for patterns and produce emulation scenarios based on the conditions found on your network. It can also capture and store traffic flows for replay at a later date, such as needing to test code upgrades under the exact same conditions as when an issue was first reported.
A full reporting suite comes as standard with the 1000 series.
Shamrock 10000 Series
The Shamrock 10000 series of WAN emulators include the accuracy, features and the control of the 1000 series, but with 10 Gbps interfaces and either 2 or 4 network ports to emulate high throughput connections on your LAN. Up to 20 independent emulations can be performed with powerful filtering including IP, VLAN, MPLS etc.
A full reporting suite comes as standard with the 10000 series.
