MIMIC MQTT Simulator for rapid prototyping of Amazon AWS IoT applications

A simulated sensor in MIMIC MQTT Simulator is generating JSON
messages to Amazon AWS IoT . The AWS subscriber client is showing
the received messages.

MIMIC allows rapid prototyping of many publishers with custom payloads
and custom message rates. By simulating thousands of such sensors you
can benchmark your performance with AWS IoT

Setting up a benchmarking environment to test the performance
of large-scale IoT applications is specially cumbersome. It needs a large
number of sensors, each with different IP address. Each type of sensor
sends out different messages at different rates and with unique content.

MIMIC MQTT Simulator creates such an environment with thousands of
sensors. In this example we have simulated an Intel sensor that sends
messages to the AWS IoT gateway. You can see in the image that the
messages are received by the AWS IoT subscriber client. The MIMIC log
window shows the connection-related transactions.

This can be easily multiplied to simulate thousands of sensors to create an
IoT lab with the desired variety of sensors. You can use the environment to
benchmark the performance matrix for your IoT applications.

Benchmark your MQTT application with MIMIC MQTT Simulator

Now you too can benchmark your MQTT application with MIMIC MQTT Simulator.

Here the IBM MessageSight MQTT broker is handling 100,000 connections
from MIMIC simulated MQTT sensors publishing messages at around 10,000
/ second to one subscriber client.

Everything in the MIMIC MQTT Simulator is runtime-configurable to suit
your custom requirements.

MIMIC MQTT Simulator interoperates with IBM MessageSight

In a little over 10 minutes we start 20,000 simulated sensors connecting
to the IBM MessageSight MQTT Broker. Each sensor on its own IP address
is publishing messages at the rate of 1 / minute to its own topic, for
a total of around 340 / second. Since the broker is forwarding those to
the lone subscriber, the overall message rate is doubled as shown.

With MIMIC MQTT Simulator you can simulate up to 100,000 (yes, one
hundred thousand) sensors from one host.

MIMIC Simulator simulates Internet of Things

The number of Internet of Things devices by 2020 is forecast between
20+ BILLION devices according to Gartner and 38 BILLION according to
Juniper Research.

MIMIC MQTT Simulator supports simulating up to 100k (yes, 100000)
sensors from one host. You can generate any message for any sensor type
with any frequency to test your brokers and subscribers. Any number of
hosts can be controlled to provide unlimited scalability.

Lancope leverages MIMIC NetFlow Simulator for StealthWatch® System testing, demonstrations and training

"Using the MIMIC Flow Simulator, Lancope can simulate network and security issues such as
asymmetric routing, flooding, bad flags generation, creating single IP with multiple user name (like a
proxy server), address or port scan. These features help in testing the support for the detection of various
Botnets, DDoS attacks, insider threats and spread of malware. "

For details see this case study.

MIMIC Web Simulator provides vCenter simulation for data center orchestration

We have created a lab of ESXi hosts using MIMIC Web Simulator.
It is controlled through the vSphere GUI and vCenter.

In this video, you will see how vSphere connect to all simulated ESXi
hosts as if it is connecting to the real hosts. Each host also has many
simulated VMs.

In the second video, you will see how we start and stop VMs, migrate them
from one host to another.

The third video shows how you have complete control over the simulated
hosts. We customize different host types, memory and VMs, including
changing parameters in real-time through the MIMIC Web Wizard.

For more information to create your own simulated lab, contact sales@gambitcomm.com .
