NorthStar Planner

NorthStar Planner is a modeling tool you can use for offline visualization and detailed architectural planning of your production network. It enables you to forecast the impact of network changes such as latency, additional traffic, shifts in traffic flows, and new capacity or services.

Its intuitive graphical interface provides concise and in-depth views of routed networks, helping you optimize bandwidth and network resources. You can also model and visualize dynamic explicit routing paths, designed to meet end-user defined constraints, using NorthStar Planner’s global network topological view.

By collecting data through dynamic-topology or label-switched path (LSP) data acquisition, NorthStar Planner can generate a graphical view of your network, enabling you to add, remove, and reconfigure network elements. You can simulate the effects of these changes and other traffic scenarios in Planner, without affecting your production network. Simulations can be run on demand or scheduled, to help assess your network for potential failure scenarios.

Principales fonctionnalités


  • Design: Construct network topology maps showing simulated or imported data for nodes, links, and LSP paths.  
  • Simulate: Create or schedule simulation events to analyze the network model based on failure scenarios such as link congestion, broken link, unresponsive node, and more.  
  • Analyze: Provides extensive reports for simulation and planning using report manager.
