Enhance and protect customer experience

INSIGHT INTO NEXT-GENERATION NETWORKS

Service providers are under constant pressure to modernize networks and deliver an exceptional user experience. Ensure your virtualized and 5G networks are high-performing and cost-effective, with solutions for pre-deployment testing, resilient security, total packet access, and continual performance monitoring.

 

KEY SERVICE PROVIDER SOLUTIONS

LTE/5G PERFORMANCE TESTING

Deliver secure and connected 5G services using Ixia’s deep expertise in cellular and IP networks. Load generators and software-defined test platforms reduce deployment risk. Measurement and visibility solutions ensure signals and data flow from device to edge to network core. Testing solutions include:

  • 5G Wireless Testing
  • LTE Radio Access Network Tower Testing
  • LTE Evolve Packet Core Testing
  • LTE WI-FI Offload Testing

NFV MIGRATION

Replacing hardware devices with software functions running on white box servers in the data center offers unprecedented flexibility and agility, and is also required for 5G implementations. At the same time, NFV migration presents challenges for understanding the performance and scale of virtual network functions (VNF) and the underlying NFV infrastructure (NFVi).

Ixia can help you ensure carrier-class performance for your next-generation networks, including:

  • VNF and NFVi benchmarking
  • Onboarding and lifecycle management
  • Service chain validation
  • Edge computing

VALIDATING INTELLIGENT NETWORKS

Many providers are investing in technologies to support 5G, IoT, NFV migration, cloud-scale data centers, and edge computing. The next generation of intelligent networks will leverage new technologies such as virtualization, automated network management, centralized control, real-time telemetry, disaggregated implementation, and modular design. These changes are making it more challenging to get the network insight you need to make critical design choices and minimize risk.

Ixia solutions help you validate and characterize:

  • Software Defined Network (SDN)
  • SD-WAN
  • Disaggregated networks (white box) & cloud-scale data centers
  • 400 Gigabit Ethernet
  • In-Band Network Telemetry

NETWORK SECURITY TESTING

With cybersecurity a top priority, every organization must deploy prevention and detection solutions to protect networks, services, and customer data.

Validate the security of your network using Ixia’s BreakingPoint unified application and security testing platform. Generate real application traffic loads with up to 1.4 billion concurrent sessions, 2.4 Terabits of DDoS traffic, and a complete range of active threat vectors. Other BreakingPoint solutions include:

  • BreakingPoint VE– A virtual version of the test platform
  • BreakingPoint Cloud– Microsoft® Azure® DDoS Protection Validation

 

Leverage Ixia’s dedicated Application and Threat Intelligence Resource Center, which identifies, confirms, and aggregates live attacks and malware to help you proactively defend your networks.

  • Application and Threat Intelligence Subscription– A real-time threat intelligence feed used in Ixia security solutions
  • ThreatARMOR– A security appliance that uses the intelligence feed to proactively block threats from entering your network at line rate

NETWORK VISIBILITY

Valuable technologies like 5G, CORD, SDN, NFV, IoT, and cloud computing are helping modernize network infrastructure. Be sure you have complete visibility to what happens on your entire network, so you can meet the demand for new services and stay cost-efficient.

  • Use the insight derived from Ixia Network Visibility Products to reduce costs, optimize performance, and strengthen security of your network.
  •  
  • Enhance user experience using mobile carrier-specialized packet-level details provided by Ixia CloudLens with MobileStack.
  •  
  • Transform open switches into network packet brokers using Ixia Vision Edge OS, and get complete visibility within your software-defined data center.

PERFORMANCE MONITORING

Be the first to know what is happening on your network and optimize your users’ experience. Synthetic traffic generation and real-time dashboards help you:

  • Proactively monitor network and application performance against your service level agreements
  • Detect network outages or bottlenecks before they impact user experience
  • Troubleshoot problems quickly and accurately
  • Gain visibility into your clouds
  • Automate alerts and network performance checks

INTRODUCING IXPROBE

MEET TOUGH SLAS AND LOCK IN SERVICE ASSURANCE WITH INLINE AND ACTIVE MONITORING

For network service providers and the clients who count on them, SLAs are the pulse of business. But as expectations around quality of service (QoS) continue to rise, meeting them can be hard without monitoring last-mile connectivity — threatening your ability to offer lucrative service assurance, satisfy customers, and maintain network access across client sites.

An inline monitoring probe, IxProbe combines real-time monitoring, SLA verification, and synthetic QoS testing via Hawkeye — putting you in control of your network’s edge with fewer truck rolls, faster troubleshooting, and effortless deployment at scale.
