Applications for MIMIC

R&D: Virtual "test network" environment

Enterprise-wide Network Management applications typically communicate with many manageable devices. In order to exercise the application, a laboratory must setup a facsimile of the expected environments. This translates into setup, maintenance, support and management of a lab within the budget constrains. That is why enterprises and manufacturers turn to MIMIC Simulator for overcoming the hurdles and creating a reliable environment.

Sales: Portable product demonstrations

Marketing and sales can demonstrate network management product capabilities easily, reliably and effectively. MIMIC helps create different network scenarios instantly. It simplifies demo setup, enhance portability, and reduce cost-of-sales.

Support: Bring back customers environments

Support staff doesn't have to visit the customer location and try to reproduce the problem for days. With MIMIC's recording tool, they can record and bring back the customer's environment and work more efficiently.

Training: Flexible training facility

Instructors can deliver more effective network management training. MIMIC is a portable enterprise network-in-a-box, enabling students to investigate routine and unforeseen network management scenarios.

HP OpenView Education and Training group teaches an advanced Network Node Manager course that uses MIMIC Simulator for students that allows them the opportunity to experience common deployment problems. [more]

Evaluation: More thorough product evaluations

End-users can easily yet exhaustively evaluate new management products prior to purchase, and customize them after purchase. MIMIC scripts automate testing by simulating network conditions in the virtual MIMIC environment.

Examples

The following sections show how easy it is to setup a variety of scenarios with the MIMIC Agent Simulator. Notice, all the examples are unretouched actual sessions in our labs using leading Network Management Applications. The agents that these applications are talking to are all simulated using MIMIC.
