Products > Network Test Solutions - Test with the Best

Today's networking environment is increasingly complex. Data center convergence, enterprise expansion, and new service deployments require you to combine many different technologies – including physical and virtualized devices – into a single network infrastructure. Such networks must handle massive amounts of traffic with critical applications over both point-to-point and multicast network strategies. Ixia's test solutions help to make this possible.

As networks converge into a single network infrastructure that is used to carry voice, video, data, and wireless traffic, it is critical to use leading-edge test systems to assess functionality, scale, and performance. IxNetwork provides wire-rate traffic generation with service modeling that builds realistic, dynamically-controllable data-plane traffic.

IxNetwork offers the industry´s best test solution for functional and performance testing by using comprehensive emulation for routing, switching, multi-protocol label switching (MPLS), IP multicast, broadband access, authentication, carrier Ethernet, data center bridging (DCB), and software defined networking (SDN) protocols. IxNetwork scales to handle the most powerful devices and largest networks.

IxNetwork offers the customization and flexibility to meet the wide range of requirements necessary for testing complex network topologies with thousands of network devices. It emulates millions of routes and reachable hosts and can customize millions of traffic flows to stress data plane performance. Powerful graphical user interface (GUI) wizards and grid controls allow simplified creation of sophisticated traffic flows. Its enhanced real-time analysis and statistics are capable of reporting comprehensive protocol status and detailed per-flow traffic performance metrics.

  • Offers test coverage from 1G to 400G Ethernet
  • Provides comprehensive protocol coverage for routing/switching, multiprotocol label switching (MPLS), broadband access, industrial Ethernet (IE), data center networking, and software-defined networking (SDN)
  • Generates traffic flows that mimic realistic user applications and scenarios
  • Works smoothly in virtualized network environments, and runs from any commercially available compute environment
  • Delivers end-to-end test system automation
  • Performs rapid isolation of service violations, including thorough traffic-flow analysis

IxLoad is the industry´s most scalable solution for testing converged multiplay services and application delivery platforms. IxLoad emulates data, voice, and video subscribers and their associated protocols for ultra-high performance testing. Unique and advanced subscriber modeling capabilities create realistic scenarios to validate subscriber quality of experience (QoE). To speed test configuration and ensure optimal realism, IxLoad simulates today´s most-used Internet, video, voice, storage, security, VPN, wireless, infrastructure, and encapsulation/security protocols.

Flexible and Scalable Platform to Meet Your Needs

IxLoad is powered by Ixia physical and virtual load modules and chassis, which offer the flexibility for:

  • Massive-scale, native 10/40/100GbE testing using PerfectStorm 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE native interface load modules and XGS12 chassis.
  • Enterprise-wide 1/10/40GbE testing using PerfectStorm ONE appliances.
  • Seamless use with Ixia´s BreakingPoint application and security test application for a single, more powerful system that can validate every element of the data center.
  • High-density 1/10GbE testing with up to 80Gbps of multiplay traffic, and 20Gbps of IPsec traffic using the Xcellon-Ultra line of load modules that are specifically designed to be used with IxLoad.
  • Virtual environment testing with IxLoad/VM, which uses Ixia´s IxVM virtual chassis implementation, a software implementation of Ixia´s platform that allows virtual machines (VMs) on blade servers to act as Ixia test ports. The virtual test ports can be used independently or in conjunction with chassis based ports.

With Ixia's BreakingPoint® application and security test solution, enterprises, service providers, and equipment manufacturers validate the stability, accuracy, and quality of networks and network devices. BreakingPoin's unique design enables the creation of real-world legitimate traffic, distributed denial of service (DDoS), exploits, malware, and fuzzing at the same time and from the same port. Combined with full control of the load capacity and detailed per-simulated host reporting, this makes BreakingPoint the ideal simple-to-use and repeatable testing eco-system for modern network testing.

In today's world of crippling cyber-attacks and dynamic applications, you need to know that your networks are secure and high-performing enough to handle the worst from cyber criminals and extreme-traffic anomalies. Complex system interactions make it difficult for you to optimize security performance and network resiliency. Any approach that fails to fully-validate network security and performance with realistic application load and attack techniques is insufficient and risky.

With Ixia's BreakingPoint® application and security test solution, enterprises, service providers, and equipment manufacturers validate the stability, accuracy, and quality of networks and network devices. BreakingPoint's unique design enables the creation of real-world legitimate traffic, distributed denial of service (DDoS), exploits, malware, and fuzzing at the same time and from the same port. Combined with full control of the load capacity and detailed per-simulated host reporting, this makes BreakingPoint the ideal simple-to-use and repeatable testing eco-system for modern network testing.

BreakingPoint provides test solutions ensure:

  • Network security
    • Maximize security investments with onsite network-specific proof-of-concept (PoC) validation
    • Optimize next-generation firewalls (NGFWs), intrusion prevention systems (IPS), and other security devices
    • Validate DDoS defenses
    • Build networks and cloud infrastructures that are resilient to attacks
  • Network performance
    • Ensure the always-on user experience in the midst of complexity and exploding traffic volume
    • Validate and optimize 3G and 4G/LTE networks under the most realistic conditions, using real mobile applications over mobile tunneling and roaming, and get per-user equipment (UE) statistics
Now, with the new BreakingPoint Virtual Edition (VE), enterprise IT departments have the same high-fidelity, real-world testing that security vendors and leading service providers use to ensure network security resilience - now in an elastic deployment model that makes sense for their business.

With the PerfectStorm™ load modules and XGS12™ chassis, BreakingPoint offers an all-in-one security and performance testing platform for massive-scale, stateful layer 4-7 application and security testing.
