Looking to add new network devices but restricted in budget and time?


Normally, there would be no easy answer to this dilemma. You would have to spend a pretty penny on acquiring new hardware for your environment without even knowing how this change will affect your entire set up. 

Fortunately, the Jalasoft SNMP Simulator offers, among other incredible features, the chance to create your own network devices through our “Device Recorder” feature.  Ideal for testing with network devices that you don’t have in your test lab, the Device Recorder lets you mimic the behavior of any real SNMP device. Use the new Device Recorder feature to capture real world data from any desired device and simulate the selected behavior as many times as needed, without putting your production network at risk. For a quick infographic that explains this feature, see Record any SNMP network device in 5 easy steps!

With this tool, not only can you test new devices in heavily secured networks or environments that are too isolated for testing, but you can do so with a large number of simulated devices to retrieve more relevant and authentic data which will in turn help you to take appropriate measures to ensure the overall health of your set up.

For those limited in time and budget, you’ll be surprised to see that Jalasoft offers very nicely priced bundles that are accessible to almost all small, medium or large enterprises.

Plus on May 28th & 29th, register in our website to obtain a free SNMP Device simulator version that will allow you to simulate up to 10 network devices. Details to come soon, make sure to mark your calendar.
