Just as an architectural engineer uses computer aided design (CAD) to design and test the strength of a skyscraper, so can a network architect design and test a complete IT network before it’s actually built. Enlist Riverbed OPNET Network Planner™ to get answers to network “what if” scenarios such as changes in technology, growth, consolidation, migration, and new application deployment. Get OPNET Network Planner as a standalone product, or as part of the Riverbed OPNET NetOne® Suite.
OPNET Network Planner comes in two flavors: (1) Rivebed OPNET SP Guru® Network Planner: Network testing and planning for service providers, and (2) Rivebed OPNET IT Guru® Network Planner: Network testing and planning for your company’s IT network
Minimize risk of any network deployment by first evaluating different network architectures and any technology migration plans. You’ll be able to test for capacity, survivability, and managing traffic.
OPNET Network Planner considers and combines multiple sources of data to provide a more complete and accurate prediction of network behavior and performance.
You’ll be able to test network topologies that deliver the lowest cost, the most throughput, the most resilient security, or any other mix of performance-related criteria.
With scenario testing you’ll have the accurate results to support your plans for data center migration, unified communications deployment, VoIP deployment, and IPv6 migration.
Every single network change can be tested in a simulated environment before deploying to the production network. Not only do you save money, but you also save network managers' precious time.
With OPNET Network Planner, carriers, ISPs, cable operators, and wireless service providers have better prediction tools to insure they meet service level agreements (SLAs) and maximize existing or future network investments.
OPNET SP Guru Network Planner lets service providers test and optimize MPLS traffic for best utilization of resources.
