Emulating WANs with WANem - Packet Life

I recently noticed someone on Twitter asking for software to emulate WAN connections for lab purposes. WAN emulation introduces artificial delay, bandwidth restrictions, and other impediments for the purpose of benchmarking applications and protocols against real-world conditions. I suggested WANem, having read a bit about it, but realizing that up that point I had never actually used it. What a great topic for a blog article!

GNS3 | Graphical Network Simulator

GNS3 is a graphical network simulator that allows simulation of complex networks.

To allow complete simulations, GNS3 is strongly linked with :

* Dynamips, the core program that allows Cisco IOS emulation.
* Dynagen, a text-based front-end for Dynamips.
* Qemu, a generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer.

GNS3 is an excellent complementary tool to real labs for network engineers, administrators and people wanting to pass certifications such as CCNA, CCNP, CCIP, CCIE, JNCIA, JNCIS, JNCIE.

It can also be used to experiment features of Cisco IOS, Juniper JunOS or to check configurations that need to be deployed later on real routers.

This project is an open source, free program that may be used on multiple operating systems, including Windows, Linux, and MacOS X.
