The Internet is a rapidly expanding and developing network. To maintain it, lots of tools like routers, gateways and firewalls are needed.
For developing, testing, and to scale these tools, traffic patterns are needed.
Simulated and not real samples are usually inadequate, because they do not reflect the real influences, as the packets do not go effectively through the network. Service providers can not give a real-time test because of user anonymity and legal requirements.
Hence is the need for programmes that are generating automated real-network traffic.
Besides desk computers, mobile devices with Internet access are now widely used like smart phones, tablet PCs, etc, leading to widespread use of the Android. Which is why I created this emulator on this platform.
The emulator can run automated predefined user scenarios, while recording network traffic. The identification of user scenarios and typical behaviors
is done by special strings.
The paper will explain the basic operation of the Android platform and the construction and operation of the emulator I have designed.
In addition, it will contain an analysis of a selected sample, and a comparison to an emulated pattern on a desktop computer.
