Maxwell Pro Network Emulation and Protocol Testing

Confidently deploy network based applications and devices.

Reliably replicate real-world network conditions to optimize app and device performance before product release. Maxwell Pro emulates mobile, cloud and WAN networks, recreating all real-world adverse network conditions like network congestion, slow links, time outs, and other adverse network conditions.

Efficiently and accurately identify performance issues. Proactively address errors to ensure your customers have a solid experience when they get your hardware or software in their hands.

  • Choose from pre-built test scenarios, or build your own!
  • Inject any network, protocol, or packet level impairment
  • Graphic, command line or script driven interface
  • Fully programmable in C, C++, or Python
  • Support for 10 GE (ten gig) interfaces

Find Problems Before Anyone Else

  • Test, diagnose and remediate application performance in new releases by replicating the production network in the lab.
  • Detect and track individual flows while remaining undetectable to other devices on the network.
  • Intelligently test thousands of code paths, not just the most common paths, in a stateful manner.
  • Simplify rigorous, repeatable, regression testing.
  • Multiple flows and stateful operation.

Add Time-varying Impairments to your Emulation

Real world networks change their behavior over time. And so should your network emulation scenario.

  • Create a network emulation that varies the impairment parameters over any time period
  • Specify a time-varying expression for any metric, using equations, piecewise curves, or shaped pulses
We looked at a number of products, but selected Maxwell because of the ability to create custom impairments and custom filters. This is very useful in our testing environment.

Monitor from Anywhere

Monitor your Maxwell Pro network emulation from a Chrome web browser on your tablet or desktop computer, with the MPtable and MPchart applications.

  • MPtable provides a bird’s eye view of everything that is happening on the Maxwell Pro Network Emulator: Create tables, then expand the advanced tab to see metrics / statistics for all nodes in all flows. If a packet gets impairedanywhere in the network, you’ll see a change in the statistics, in real time.
  • MPchart lets you drill down to see real-time graphs for a few selected statistics. Using linear or logarithmic axes, you can get a better sense of how metrics / impairments change over time. You can also display two metrics on the same graph to directly compare them.
We use Maxwell to filter and emulate BACnet/IP traffic in order to pinpoint issues and problems at our customer's sites. Using Maxwell has saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars in labor and equipment as we can faithfully emulate a customer site without re-creating the customer network.

Test Multimedia G.1050

The ITU-T Recommendation G.1050 provides a standardized network model for evaluating multimedia transmission performance over the internet. Maxwell Pro’s G.1050 tests help product manufacturers verify proper device performance under a range of known, deployed network configurations including common network anomalies and impairments. Validate application performance and guarantee the success of your cloud-based initiative with pre-deployment testing.

With Maxwell Pro you can test:

  • Storage in the cloud applications under limited bandwidth connections
  • Audio interaction over the internet for gaming applications
  • Multimedia devices containing video, voice streams & more
