APPLICATION LAYER PROCOTOLS 

IxLoad delivers a wide variety of fully stateful protocols to emulate a complete multiplay user environment. It delivers a sophisticated subscriber modeling capability that enables users to model the dynamic nature of subscriber behavior. Ixia’s purpose-built chassis and load modules empower IxLoad to generate city-scale traffic. This, along with comprehensive network support, advanced test timelines and automatic goal-seek fine-tuning to meet test objective, enables users to comprehensively assess the performance of their service delivery networks and determine application-level performance with a single integrated solution.

Application Mixes

AppLibrary – A continually expanding and updated library of pre-defined application flows and application mixes of the most current internet applications

Sophisticated SuBSCRIBER MODELING

To closely model real-world device and network load, IxLoad uses a unique approach called subscriber modeling that enables users to:

  • Emulate multiple application services per subscriber or user, including service sequencing
  • Model traffic usage over time for each application, with advanced timelines
  • Simulate the temporal nature of subscribers connecting and disconnecting from the network in a dynamic manner
  • Completely control usage profile—particular websites visited, e-mail servers used, transfer sizes, channel changing behavior, streaming content, protocol options, etc.

AppLibrary

In addition to the fully stateful protocols emulations, IxLoad includes AppLibrary, and extensive library of pre-defined application flows that simulate end-user interactions and devices. It speeds and simplifies testing application performance with blended application mixes. AppLibrary uses Ixia Application and Threat Intelligence (ATI) program to ensure the flows are current and are updated on a monthly basis.

Quality of Experience Metrics

IxLoad delivers an extensive real-time statistics viewer with pre-defined, customizable views.

  • Protocol-level statistics for in-depth functional testing, as well as real-time test-level statistics ideally suited to scale testing
  • Aggregate statistics are displayed hierarchically, with the ability to drill-down to network groups, application/activity-level and port-level statistics.
  • Analyze the QoE impact of services on per-user, per-IP, or per-VLAN basis
  • Set filters on statistics by specifying conditions to isolate errors and failures
  • Use CSV files to capture a single results view or at the global level to capture all results in real-time; an integrated CSV viewer enables viewing of large-result files

Resource Manager

A common pain-point for users was the lack of a collaboration tool to aid in incrementally building configurations and sharing the expertise of different team members. IxLoad Resource Manager is a central

resource manager

repository used to save, store, and reuse the various components of an IxLoad test. This allows multiple users and teams to share the different components of a test like network, traffic, activity, and protocol settings, full configuration files, external files, and more. Sharing of resources between teams increases productivity and saves precious time. You can even use Resource Manager as a light-weight version control system, storing external files like DUT configurations and  topology diagrams so others know where to access the latest (or even an earlier) revision.

Mida la calidad de la experiencia ofrecida por las aplicaciones críticas para la empresa en tiempo real con emulaciones de servicios de convergencia múltiple.

Problema: Las experiencias de calidad están en peligro de extinción

En el panorama altamente competitivo de hoy, las organizaciones deben cumplir los estrictos requisitos de calidad de las redes a fin de brindar la mejor experiencia a los clientes. Sin embargo, la cada vez más amplia gama de aplicaciones de multimedia-así como la creciente cantidad de usuarios- ocasionan que sea más difícil y más costoso que nunca validar tanto los servicios de convergencia múltiple como las plataformas de entrega de aplicaciones. Sin una manera de probar esos servicios de forma debida, la calidad de la experiencia de los clientes está en riesgo.

IxLoad

Solución: Un sistema de prueba y validación que es altamente escalable y de fácil uso

IxLoad ofrece pruebas de rendimiento exhaustivas para validar la calidad de la experiencia del usuario. IxLoad funciona mediante la emulación de protocolos de web, video, voz, almacenamiento, VPN, sistemas inalámbricos, infraestructura, encapsulación y seguridad a fin de crear escenarios realistas. Su diseño de sistema modular permite que IxLoad se escale según la infraestructura de su empresa, al mismo tiempo que los parámetros de calidad de la experiencia en tiempo real le permiten profundizar, con el fin de identificar rápidamente la degradación de la red y aislar los puntos de ruptura. Debido a que IxLoad es igual de sencillo que de eficaz, no tiene que ser un experto en protocolos para realizar la validación completa de un extremo a otro.
