MIMIC IoT/MQTT Simulator creates a real-world test lab with thousands of IoT sensors and devices. MIMIC allows suppliers of MQTT sensors, devices, gateways and applications to design, develop and test their Brokers, Load balancers and clients using secured connections, in a virtual and scalable network environment. Using MIMIC, they can assure their customers that their applications will be able to handle the scales of connections, topics and varieties of messages to work properly when deployed across heterogeneous environments. They can also create a variety of benchmarks to show the scalability for sensors, volume of messages and topics.
With MIMIC MQTT Simulator ARTIK users can create an IoT Smart City.
Simulate thousands of Publishers and Subscribers: Each with their own IP address, Port, Client ID and Authentication Each Publisher can publish to multiple, unique topics Each Subscriber can subscribe to multiple, unique topics, including Wildcard topics Each Publisher can be a Subscriber also.
Connect to Brokers, MQTT gateways, Load balancers and clients using secured connections using TLS;
Authenticate each simulated sensor with OAuth 2.0 server or JSON Web Tokens (JWT);
Include Authenticated (with User Name/Password) messages for every connections;
Send messages with various QoS levels;
Send messages with various message length, different frequencies or malicious information to test the security;
Configure Connect and Re-Connect as needed;
Simulate faulty sensor network to verify robustness of subscriber application;
Monitor the end-to-end delay (latency) for messages going from Publishers to Subscribers through the Broker.
MIMIC MQTT Simulator Integration with ARTIK Platform
This 1-minute video shows 10 simulated sensors in MIMIC MQTT Simulator, as displayed by the Samsung Artik IoT platform. The sensors are changing temperature in real-time, which is reflected in the charts. When the temperature goes above a threshold on any sensor, e-mails are sent.
