Ixia, a Keysight Business, Enables China Mobile to Complete First 800GE Firewall Test

Ixia’s CloudStorm application and security test solution supports
complex traffic testing at 800GE

SANTA ROSA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/5G?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#5Glt;/agt;–Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company
that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate
innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that China Mobile
completed the industry’s first 800 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) firewall test
with the award-winning
CloudStorm test solution from Ixia, a Keysight Business. This enabled
China Mobile to test the firewall at 800GE stateful traffic including
bandwidth, connection per second and concurrent connections.

As operators evolve their infrastructures to support 5G and hyperscale
data centers, it is necessary to validate that network equipment can
support high Ethernet speeds, in addition to ensuring that firewalls can
support applications and protect the infrastructure at massive scale
such as 800GE.

“Network equipment manufacturers are introducing hardware designed to
support 5G environments and hyperscale data centers while network
operators need to ensure that the new equipment scales to unprecedented
speeds,” said Raymond Xiu, general manager for Greater China at
Keysight’s Ixia Solutions Group. “One of the key steps in the move to
these higher speeds is validating that the network equipment is capable
of supporting complex traffic today and in the future. CloudStorm is the
only solution that can supply the massive 800GE stateful traffic testbed
necessary to support this type of testing.”

Ixia’s CloudStorm
100GE Application and Security Test Load Module
unprecedented performance to service providers to test and validate the
increased capacity, efficiency and resiliency of hyperscale cloud data
centers and operator networks. CloudStorm 100GE enables:

  • massive-scale testing, under realistic traffic conditions, of critical
    elements in complex data centers and network infrastructure, including
    server applications, storage workloads and network security devices
  • testing 200G bi-directional traffic leveraging a Layer 4-7 100GE full
    line-rate interface for security and performance in complex traffic
    models; simulating 2.4 Terabits mixed application traffic as well as
    malicious traffic in 11U space.
  • multi speed testing (100/50/40/25/10GE) on a single port to increase
    return on investment
  • hardware-based Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) acceleration delivering 4X
    encryption performance and emulation of multi-terabit DDoS and botnet
    attacks to future-proof security solutions
