6WIND verifies solutions for telecom infrastructure, network
appliances and virtual switching using Ixia traffic generation
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
Using Ixia’s IxNetwork and IxLoad, 6WINDis able to emulate the
highest rate of network traffic over platforms in order to fully
stress and validate underlying software.
