KMAX-V (virtualized KMAX) is available for the VMware vSphere Hypervisor® ESXi. 

Why a Virtual Solution?

Traditional Dev/Test requires the provisioning, installation, and configuration of vendor hardware for testing complex environments and apps. For labs and test environments utilizing VM technology, the KMAX-V Virtual Network Emulator significantly reduces provisioning and installation time. As a result, the product development and testing teams can focus on productive work as soon as possible.

KMAX-V Package

KMAX-V ships as a pre-configured Virtual Machine (VM). Just install the KMAX .ova file and start the VM; there is no additional configuration required.

The KMAX virtual machine uses at least three virtual network interfaces:

  • One is for connection to users, i.e. the typical developer lab or company network on which users run their desktop and laptop computers.
  • The remainder are for KMAX packet traffic. These can be virtual or physical interfaces. However, no two should be on the same broadcast domain, which means that they can be any mix of VLANs and physical ethernets as long as there is no packet path between them except via the KMAX.

Includes: FreeBSD OS, KMAX® kernal-driven impairment engine, and 90 Day Warranty.
