Ensure your SDN and NFV deployment delivers performance, agility, and scale

Imagine knowing with certainty how virtualization would perform in your data center, cloud, or network environment. You would be able to scale without risk. You could project costs and measure efficiency. You would know which connections to monitor to prevent problems. 

Ixia offers reliability testing and performance monitoring designed for the specific challenges of network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) in data center or cloud environments. From lab to live, test and monitor to verify reliability and accelerate time to revenue with confidence.

Start in the Lab. Prove in production. Time to revenue 20% faster.

Everyone wants to deploy faster, and agile development is key to making that happen. It is about creating an environment where developers can integrate their new code into a realistic environment to evaluate its stability and security functions. Getting this right can result in advancing to production 20% faster. 

Ixia gives you tools for end-to-end validation of virtualization migrations to dramatically accelerate time from lab to production. By ensuring alignment with the Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) agile service development model, you can rapidly identify and resolve issues.
