Network emulation brings realistic IP network conditions to the lab

Network emulation tools let you ensure your network will be ready for the real life challenges and traffic loads.

A network or a service that works well in an optimal laboratory setting may not be capable of handling realistic network conditions. To ensure consistent Quality of Service to your customers, you'll need to stress your system with a range of impairments, varying from basic delay and packet drop to more advanced deviations and various traffic loads. 


Our team at Rugged Tooling focuses on providing the network emulation tools needed: our Rude IP deviation emulator recreates any real life challenge in the lab and our Ruge IP load generator creates the traffic. 


A well-tested network is a reliable and profitable network, delivering

  • consistent level of service to customers
  • optimized investment on infrastructure
  • quick recovery from problems avoids downtime

Network emulation brings real life to lab, to ensure your network achieves its targets.

IP impairment: Realistic scenarios in the lab

Stress testing your network before deployment with deviations in the traffic will ensure flawless operation after deployment. By emulating scenarios that represent likely network conditions at their worst, you will be able to find any issues early on. The below example highlights the basics of IP impairment. Each use case is specific with its own focus areas.

IP load testing  

Creating realistic capacity testing scenarios

Testing your network capacity before deployment will give you actionable insight into the actual limits. Contrary to what is often expected, capacity testing can be done even during the development phase, thus reducing the time needed for correction rounds at deployment. Our team at Rugged Tooling has built the Ruge IP load generator to emulate the exact network scenario that you need in your lab.
