Zero Latency, Failsafe Reliability
Are commands impervious to interception across multiple hops?Are delays on the WAN compromising daily backups?Is Wi-Fi interfering with radar?
With global dependence upon technology and real-time data at an all-time high, the proficiency and unfailing resilience of government networks must be ensured and optimized as never before. Trends toward virtualization, increased mobility and more sophisticated, geographically dispersed client-server systems demand new levels of ongoing performance evaluation across fixed and mobile networks worldwide.
Once agencies and solution partners have designed, developed, and deployed new applications and systems, implementing an ongoing, proactive testing regimen serves to ensure performance and security amidst the most volatile physical and virtual conditions. Simulating cyber attacks, crisis conditions and extreme spikes in traffic volumes enables tighter management of network availability and quality of service (QoS), vendor performance and the resulting impact on applications. And when things don't perform as promised, comprehensive testing shows where and why to speed resolution and safeguard operations.
The Gold Standard in "Mission Assurance"Ixia's network testing and optimization solutions capture the ongoing performance metrics needed to assess users' quality of experience (QoE). Government engineers and operations teams can leverage the same test platforms technology infrastructure providers use in delivering products and services to ensure the highest possible standards of excellence.
Scaling to simulate ultra-high speeds and thousands of routes, real-time rate changes, and real-media sessions, Ixia solutions assess:
- Global network performance and its impact on applications
- Switching and routing infrastructure performance
- QoE for voice, video, data, Web applications
- Mobile network, device and roaming performance
- Security and resistance to cyber threats
- Conformance to crucial standards for implementation and interoperability

No two networks, applications, users or scenarios are ever alike. Testing in real time, with real traffic lets QA and IT professionals benchmark QoS, ROI and QoE from end-users' point-of-view. Browse Ixia products, or contact a test expert to see how our unparalleled experience, professional services and test automation solutions can help reduce cycles and cost while optimizing quality.
"Network" doesn't just mean pipes anymore, nor is "latency" just a network word. Strategic quality testing entails emulating, benchmarking, and modeling a complex ecosystem made up of LANs, WANs, WLANs, clouds, and third-party outsourced services.
Which pipes need to be 10GE? Does provisioning meet changing traffic needs? Which providers missed the mark on SLAs? Why? What happens when we add new locations? New applications?
Ixia solutions inform comprehensive Network Assessment and quality assurance including:
- Validating pre-production links to verify quality
- Verifying performance and scalability ofswitching and routing infrastructures
- Quantifying the impact of exceeding route tables
- Ensuring delivered services meet SLAs
- Measuring service disruption recovery times
- Assessing adherence and updating QoS policies
- Verifying dual IPv4 / IPv6 compliance
No two networks, applications, users or situations are ever alike. Testing in real time, with real traffic lets test and IT professionals benchmark quality of experience (QoE) from customers' point-of-view. Managing customers' Quality of Experience means hearing four-letter words like "slow," "wait," "drop," and "cost" a lot less.
Generating up to 8,000 real media sessions, Ixia solutions emulate traffic conditions, protocol mixes and "overload" conditions to deliver relevant, qualitative metrics for multiplay services and applications:
