MIMIC SNMP Simulator and neteXpose DNA

MIMIC SNMP Simulator can simulate details of each device to the finest level. In 

this integration, netExpose DNA discovered the chassis details of a simulated 

Alcatel switch, allowing them to test their management application with all sorts

of device scenarios.

Migrating to Google IoT Core alternatives

If you are contemplating migrating from Google IoT before it retires in a year, you 

might want to use MIMIC MQTT Simulator and its SaaS offering for Google IoT 

https://mqttlab.iotsim.io/gcp to design / develop / test your migration strategy.

MIMIC MQTT Simulator allows you to simulate a large number of your assets that 

connect to Google IoT Core, then migrate them to the alternative of your choice.

You can duplicate your current IoT environment in MIMIC to make sure the new 

IoT platform handles your specific requirements.

MIMIC MQTT Lab for Azure IoT Hub - get started in 5 minutes

 Available for immediate use is MIMIC MQTT Lab Azure to get started with Azure IoT Hub

in minutes, as shown in this 3-minute Youtube video

Start with #nocode, #loweffort, #lowcost, then graduate to more advanced IoT simulation

to develop, test, prototype, demo and train your Azure IoT application.

Generate predictable, customized telemetry graphed in Azure Time Series Insight in under

2 minutes

Live, dynamic, immediate, 24/7, interactive Ubidots demo

 FYI, we have published a demo with MIMIC MQTT Lab for the Ubidots IoT platform that is

  1. live - real-time telemetry, no pre-canned videos;
  2. dynamic - things are changing all the time, GPS coordinates, telemetry;
  3. immediate - no need to sign up, etc. just open 2 web browser windows;
  4. predictable - telemetry looks deliberately artificial to show complete control;
  5. interactive - can change the telemetry in real-time;
  6. 24/7 - any time of day or night.

The demo shows asset tracking features for a fleet of vehicles: real-time telemetry updates the location

on the map. If the vehicle is going too fast or is stopped, the colors of the gauge widgets turn to yellow and red respectively.

To try it now, open 2 web browser windows side by side with the URLs to

eg. as in this Youtube video

 You can change the speed of vehicle 1 with the Demo menu. Allow a couple of seconds to see the impact in the dashboard.

UPDATE: You can now try the same demo for several more platforms:

Self-service MQTT latency testing

We have created a SaaS lab at https://mqttlab.iotsim.io/mqttlatency to test real-time round-trip latency to/from your internet-accessible MQTT broker.

This 4-minute Youtube video shows how easy it is by measuring latency for 3 publically accessible MQTT brokers. To add your own would be a minute more.

insight.tech: Avoid IoT Project Failure with Better Simulators

MIMIC IoT Simulator is featured in this Intel insight.tech article

"Proper network simulation is essential to a successful scale-up.
Rather than attempting to simulate physical hardware, Gambit simulates
the traffic that IoT devices generate when they communicate across
the network.
When end users can model their network and sensors, they can determine
resource requirements before deploying a single device.

Check out MIMIC IoT Simulator on the Intel Marketplace to
get your IoT Simulation on the right track.
