Ixia Empowers 6WIND to Deliver High Performance Packet Processing for Software-Defined Networks 6WIND verifies solutions for telecom infrastructure, network appliances and virtual switching using Ixia traffic generation SDN & OpenFlow World Congress 2013 Business Wire CALABASAS, Calif. -- October 14, 2013 Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA) today announced that 6WIND is using Ixia solutions to ensure it delivers the highest performance networking data plane software to its customers. Using Ixia’s Layer 4 through 7 traffic generation, 6WIND confidently brings to market solutions that enhance telecom, enterprise and cloud networks while optimizing network services and addressing critical scalability challenges. Requirements for processing TCP/IP or IPsec traffic are continuously changing with new developments in cloud applications, innovation in SDN and NFV and increasing demand for enterprise-class mobility. 6WIND’s software, tested using Ixia solutions, solves Linux networking performance bottlenecks while delivering industry-leading performance for advanced networking functions in SDN-based applications. News highlights As network throughput requirements increase with data center convergence, enterprise expansion and new service deployments, network professionals are required to deliver high performance in both physical and virtual environments. *Internet traffic continues to grow exponentially with the swift rise in mixed-media downloads, video streaming, peer-to-peer sharing, wireless usage and traffic aggregation. *Ixia enables 6WIND to fully test against various traffic mixes relevant to the gamut of network environments, including the type of traffic unique to SDN and NFV applications, which are increasingly important to 6WIND as it serves customers in these growing markets. *Through Ixia’s solutions, 6WIND is able to fully stress its fast path software architecture that includes functions such as IPsec, TCP, PPPoE, NAT and OVS acceleration. 6WIND verifies performance levels that reach hundreds of Gbps, millions of TCP connections and low latency. *Using Ixia’s IxNetwork and IxLoad, 6WIND is able to emulate the highest rate of network traffic over platforms in order to fully stress and validate underlying software. *IxNetwork enables 6WIND to conduct large-scale network infrastructure, capacity, scalability and convergence testing while also providing rapid isolation of any network issues. *IxLoad provides the next level of testing by emulating data, voice and video to comprehensively test application delivery platforms. This week, 6WIND will be demonstrating its Open vSwitch acceleration solution, driven by an Ixia traffic generator, at SDN & OpenFlow World Congress, Frankfurt, Germany, at Stand 16.
