DOCUMENTATION 》 TOFFEE-Mocha WAN emulator Lab deployment and topology guide

Typical TOFFEE-Mocha WAN simulator lab setup
This is the most simplest lab setup which you can do.

  • Scenario 1: You can connect two LAN networks via TOFFEE-Mocha. This will emulate two branch office networks connected via WAN or Internet.
  • Scenario 2: In other case you can connect two test PCs connected via TOFFEE-Mocha. This will be a test setup to test TOFFEE-Mocha itself. This gives an opportunity to test, understand and learn TOFFEE-Mocha features in real-time.

The advantage of this setup is that you can do bulk traffic tests such as large file-downloads, bulk large packet ping tests via TOFFEE-Mocha and do research and analysis. You can test your TCP acceleration and TCP optimization parameters if you had set in your LAN networks or test PCs. TOFFEE-Mocha delay feature helps you to slow-down the network speed and you can see realtime analysis of networking parameters in slow motion.

NOTE: For more details regarding TOFFEE-Mocha test-cases and test-results kindly refer: TEST CASES :: TEST RESULTS :: Raspberry Pi WAN Emulator TOFFEE-Mocha-1.0.14-1-rpi2

TOFFEE-Mocha WAN simulator lab test setup

TOFFEE-Mocha WAN simulator lab setup with WAN Network or with Internet
In this case assume you have Internet or WAN link termination with limited resources you can build a TOFFEE-Mocha WAN emulator. This scenario helps you to get a minimal setup with just two systems (i.e TOFFEE-Mocha device and a test PC). This is needed sometimes to do quick tests which does not need elaborate setup as discussed above. This also helps you to start learning quickly about TOFFEE-Mocha if you are new using TOFFEE-Mocha, new in terms of learning networking concepts, a student, or building a basic home lab with a test WAN emulator.

In situations like this, I highly recommend you to choose a Raspberry Pi based TOFFEE-Mocha device. This will save the space, energy and gives you a ready to use WAN emulator device in a tiny package. Once a Raspberry Pi TOFFEE-Mocha device is configured, you no longer need any keyboard, mouse and monitor in most cases.

Setting up a WAN Emulator (TOFFEE-Mocha) within VirtualBox:
You can also setup a complete TOFFEE-Mocha based VM setup as shown in the picture below. As an example in this case it is deployed within VirtualBox. You can follow similar steps and setup within any VM platform such VMware, QEMU, etc. For more details kindly refer this detailed video article HERE.

TOFFEE WAN Optimization lab test setup via TOFFEE-Mocha WAN simulator:
In this case assume you have to build a test TOFFEE WAN optimization setup in your lab. In that case if you need a WAN emulator to test efficiency of TOFFEE WAN optimization, you can choose to use a TOFFEE-Mocha WAN emulator in between two TOFFEE devices as shown below. Once your complete setup is done, you can test end to end network performance (i.e Site-A <> Site-B) with and without TOFFEE WAN optimization.

By adjusting various parameters in TOFFEE-Mocha you can simulate Mobile networks such as 3G, 4G, etc. You can simulate Satellite networks such as inflight WiFi, Marine networks, defence networks, Satellite Personal Communication Networks (S-PCNs) and so on.

One of the suggestions Google PageSpeed Insights tool suggested for The TOFFEE Project website is to minify the css and java script files. Minify Script files: When you read online about minification of your web script files, often they highlight file size savings and thus resulting faster download time and better website performance.

Today I have done a test setup so that I can able to connect my Android Samsung Tab via TOFFEE DataCenter. Below is my complete test topology of my setup. For demo (and research/development) context I configured TOFFEE DataCenter in engineering debug mode. So that I do not need two devices for this purpose.



TOFFEE (and TOFFEE-DataCenter) deployment in SD-WAN Applications ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a new innovative way to provide optimal application performance by redefining branch office networking. Unlike traditional expensive private WAN connection technologies such as MPLS, etc., SD-WAN delivers increased network performance and cost reduction. SD-WAN solution decouple network software services from the underlying hardware via software abstraction.

TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation software development - Update: 1-July-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Today I got a feature request from Jonathan Withers. Jonathan is from a company called MultiWave Australia. He said he is able to get the TOFFEE-Mocha Raspberry Pi setup up and with that he is able to emulate geostationary satellite link. But he requested me is there a way to extend the constant packet delay from 40mS to 500mS. So as a part of his request I supported the same in the current ongoing development version of TOFFEE-Mocha.

My sample Wireshark packet capture files for research ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
I have a huge repository (or collection) of sample Wireshark packet capture files for reference. I use them extensively for research and development of TOFFEE as well to understand various protocol PDUs and protocol standards. I personally collected various test captures via Wireshark during my test and experimental research setup during the course of TOFFEE development. Say if you are a student and learning Networking and or say VoIP data and VoIP packets, you can analyse my VoIP sample Wireshark captures. Or in other case assume you are doing some quick research (or development) and want to refer few handful of VoIP packets then you can download and analyse my sample packet capture files.

Here is my VLOG Youtube video of the same which includes details about version release notes, future road-map and so on. The TOFFEE release is highly optimized and customized for hardware platforms such as x86-64 based Intel NUC and other Intel mobile computing platforms such as laptops and so on. This version (or release) is not suited and so not recommended to be used for high-end desktop and server hardware platform.

VPN Network Optimization via TOFFEE WAN Optimization ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
VPN Networks may degrade network performance due to various packet processing overheads such as encryption and by adding extra network protocol header(s) (such as IPv4/IPv6, IPSec, etc). This may inflate near MTU sized packets and causes excessive packet fragmentation. Here are the few examples of packet processing involved in a VPN (or a VPN like) Tunnel. With TOFFEE you can optimize these packets even before they get processed on to a VPN device. TOFFEE optimizes packet contents (application payload and transport headers) so that these TOFFEE optimized packets when they get processed by VPN devices (or VPN software stack) they may never need further packet fragmentation. Here is a deployment scenario of TOFFEE with VPN devices.




First TOFFEE-Mocha Code Release ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
TOFFEE-Mocha is my dream project which I thought working on it since several years. I want to make a WAN emulation software which is straight forward and simple to use. I used tc scripts along with iptables for testing my TOFFEE (and TrafficSqueezer before TOFFEE) and I am not quite satisfied with the same. As one can understand these scripts are not meant for WAN emulation.
