1 Application Delivery Testing at 100Gbps and Beyond The Need for Speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) rapidly became the technology of choice for high speed connections to servers and network devices. Advancements in Ethernet lossless switching accelerated the convergence of transport and storage area networks, and reduced complexity and cost. The need to deliver more business applications to more users continues to drive the adoption of higher speed Ethernet technologies such as 40 GE and 100 GE. In most regions, users take broadband Internet access for granted. As a result, they spend more and more time online. Service providers must continually and reliably deliver higher speed and throughput to meet user expectations. Service providers annually spend billions of dollars building next generation application-aware IP networks in a bid to deliver exceptional performance. Their efforts have been largely successful -- according to Infonetics, North American voice, video, and data services revenue will reach $300B by Ixia s 100G+ Application Delivery Solutions Ixia s application services test solution meets the testing demands of today s modern networking applications and devices. Ixia s solution includes an integrated, multi-user hardware and software platform designed to maximize test equipment investment. It possesses the intelligence and horsepower to generate, measure, and critically analyze real application traffic. The components of the solution are: XM chassis high availability 12 or 2 slots, hotswappable and truly multiuser. Traffic load modules generate and analyze linerate traffic using network processors (NP). IxLoad test application awarding-winning application traffic emulation software. Consumers remaining continually connected impacts how mobile operators run their networks and do business. Many of the consumer services delivered over their networks -- video, music, social media, messaging, and hundreds of other applications that rely on Internet connectivity for real-time information -- are bandwidth heavy. Remaining competitive and profitable in this hyperconnected environment requires mobile operators to accelerate 3G/4G network deployments in order to meet the need for more bandwidth to more users. Global Internet traffic is also increasing at a rapid pace. By 2010, estimates show that a mere twenty typical U.S. homes will generate the same network traffic levels as the entire 1995 Internet. A report by CIP Technologies estimates that global traffic will double in two years, reaching a staggering 160 terabits per second -- higher than the total demand since Document No.: Rev E August Page 1

2 What is fueling the explosive demand for bandwidth? The major areas of growth driving the global IP traffic include: Consumer connectivity with various digital networks including music, video, and socializing All forms of video traffic including Internet video, HD content, digital downloads Broadband penetration in homes globally Mobile connectivity at broadband speeds More business being conducted within the Internet cloud What It Takes To Deliver Applications Network applications deliver services via sets of protocols, actions, and interactive behaviors. The advanced, content-aware devices included in such networks intelligently deliver these services end-to-end. Application aware devices detect not only the underlying network protocol, but also the content itself. Unlike routing platforms that make decisions based on network addresses, application aware devices use a combination of application recognition and content analysis to make forwarding decisions. Such devices include: Service load balancers (application delivery controllers) -- used as front-end servers that manage user sessions, accelerate and secure applications, and manage client-to-server interactions. Firewalls used as first-line defense in providing back-end services access to external and insecure networks, ensuring that only legitimate traffic is forwarded across networks. VPN concentrators -- provides users connection to business services, as well as secure and seamless interoffice connectivity between remote sites. Intrusion prevention (IPS) used to detect and neutralize thousands of application, network, and host based attacks by inspecting all packets inline. Traffic management devices -- used to recognize network applications and shape various applications based on business policies. Network pipes that deliver gigabits per-second of speed are quickly becoming saturated with traffic generated from hyper-connected applications from the Internet, enterprise applications, and mobile network access. Today s content-aware devices scale poorly when tasked with delivering applications quickly and reliably to end users. Network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) recognize the need for speed, and are bringing to market faster, more intelligent devices that are capable of scaling to the heights of next generation application delivery networks. Creating realistic application traffic (on the order of millions of user sessions, running at hundreds of gigabits per second) and reliably measuring key performance metrics of next generation, content-aware devices is a significant challenge for NEMs. Realistic Application Testing Challenges Content aware devices using deep packet inspection (DPI) at the application and payload layer are an evolutionary step in managing user traffic. As a general rule, the more inspection that occurs, the more processing power is required to maintain performance levels. Full DPI device qualification requires a multidimensional testing scope. Document No.: Rev E August Page 2

3 Key testing challenges include: Realistic emulation of application protocols, including transport protocols such as full TCP, UDP. Multiple protocol support with complete control of layer 7 configuration. Ultra-high number of user sessions, with millions of active users and IP addresses in use. Line-rate throughput performance, including exceptional small packet performance. Key performance metrics (KPI) for multi-dimensional tests at all performance level. Ixia s application delivery testing solution meets these demanding requirements. Ixia s 100G+ Application Delivery Solutions Ixia s application services test solution meets the testing demands of today s modern networking applications and devices. Ixia s solution includes an integrated, multi-user hardware and software platform designed to maximize test equipment investment.
