IxNetwork Test Solution for NSX HW VXLAN Gateway Certification

To connect virtual and physical infrastructure, VMware collaborates with third-party partners who provide standards-based Hardware VXLAN gateways as part of the NSX architecture. The third-party switch needs to be certified with NSX to ensure proper operation in NSX environments.

Read this document to learn about how Ixia's IxNetwork test solution for NSX HW VXLAN Gateway Certification provides the test environment for the VMware self-cert package to certify top of rack (ToR) switches acting as hardware VXLAN gateways in NSX environments. The solution includes emulations of NSX controllers, Hypervisors and VMs, and Replicators that offload multicast forwarding function for ToR switches, as well as bare-metal hosts connected to ToR switches.
