TrafficREWIND leverages the advanced functionality of several of the company’s solutions, including the Vision ONE™ network visibility solution to capture production network traffic profiles, the BreakingPoint™ testing platform to replay the traffic in a controlled environment such as a pre-deployment lab or a staged network, as well as Ixia’s Application and Threat Intelligence (ATI) technology for advanced threat intelligence.
“Ixia continues to lead the industry in the development of test and visibility technologies that solve complex network challenges,” said
Vision ONE enables organizations to maintain network visibility and security across physical and virtual environments from a single platform. Its Application and Threat Intelligence-based traffic sensors create metadata in the form of Netflow records which are fed to TrafficREWIND. TrafficREWIND then easily translates production network insight into test traffic configurations with high fidelity. BreakingPoint then uses the resulting test configuration to create realistic application mixes to validate the production readiness of network security tools or application-aware devices.
Ixia’s BreakingPoint validates the stability, accuracy, and quality of networks and network devices. Adding TrafficREWIND enables customers to review past production traffic conditions and replay them, plan for the future by scaling or changing traffic dynamics, and freeze time to examine a specific incident at the exact moment it happened, for rapid fault analysis.
TrafficREWIND allows customers to transform from a reactive to a proactive approach as they manage, scale, and operate their networks, by:
- Translating production network insight into traffic stimulus for sand-box test environments;
- Anonymizing payloads to ensure data security versus storing actual traffic payloads such as packet captures; and
- Modeling network behavior by dynamically changing application types, as well as the bandwidth distribution and application characteristics of the generated test traffic over time.
