Higher Ethernet speeds, higher port densities, network switches and routers, and software-defined networks require many different technologies — both physical and virtual — used in a single network infrastructure. Every upgrade requires re-evaluating network-level traffic scale, application diversity, and attack surface resilience. End-users demand speed and security so there is no margin for error when deploying new network equipment.


Network equipment manufacturers must validate their equipment against the latest applications, traffic volumes, and user behavior diversity. Service providers and large enterprises must do the same. There can be no compromises in testing realism.


White Paper

Proving Change in Business-Critical Environments


Building or deploying a new network appliance does not need to be stressful. Ensure your network and its appliances are tested at every level using the most realistic traffic scenarios.

Layer 2/3

Assess complex topologies with thousands of network devices, emulate sophisticated traffic flows, and conduct stress tests under a variety of network conditions.

Accelerate Quality with Automation

Accelerate Quality with Automation

Validate more efficiently and economically with test automation. You’ll improve the quality of your network and services by increasing the quantity, sophistication, and repeatability of the testing performed. With accelerated test cycles, you’ll get a much faster return on investment (ROI) for network and test equipment in your lab.

Test automation benefits:

  • Delight your customers with higher-quality products through better testing
  • Increase the repeatability of test results to ensure consistent improvements in quality and performance
  • Optimize utilization of physical and virtual assets to reduce CapEx and OpEx without sacrificing quality
  • Maximize team productivity by reducing the monotonous tasks of test execution so they can focus on the value-added tasks of results analysis and troubleshooting

Transform your test lab into an automated continuous test-as-a-service (TaaS) center using Ixia test automation solutions. Engage Ixia’s team of professional TaaS experts to supplement your own technical staff.

Solution Brief

Testing as a Service (TaaS)



Validate Your Chip Design

The cost of fixing bugs after chip ‘tape-out’ can run into the millions of dollars. Reduce risk by testing during the pre-silicon stage. Push your design with high volumes of Ethernet and TCP/IP protocol traffic using hundreds of predefined packet templates. Run hundreds of virtualized test ports at once and dynamically shape traffic to ensure zero packet loss at maximum emulation speeds.

Virtual Test solutions

Validate Virtual Networks

A top challenge for service providers is transitioning network devices to software functions. Boost the performance of virtualized functions using test tools and automated methodologies to validate and quantify the deterministic behavior of network functions virtualization (NFV) ecosystems throughout the virtual network functions (VNF) service lifecycle.

Don’t Compromise Your Network Security with Accidental Misconfiguration

Network security is only as good as the people who manage it, and people make mistakes that can poke holes in your security wall. Ixia network security solutions simulate realistic high-volume traffic with embedded threats and attacks. And like a security guard that makes the rounds looking for open doors, Ixia security can use automation to test for changes in the security protection of your network on a regular basis.


In the event that an inadvertent change to the network security system creates a new vulnerability, recurring testing through automation will quickly identify the vulnerability and alert your monitoring system to the sudden exposure.
