Ixia Selected by China Network World to Validate High-Performance Cisco Routers
The easy-to-use Ixia BreakingPoint FireStorm, XM12 platform and IxNetwork solutions improve testing efficiency while validating real-life application traffic
BEIJING - June 25, 2013 - Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA) recently participated in China Network World's independent testing program to validate the new Cisco ASR 1000 series routers, developed for enterprises and service providers. Ixia solutions were used to test the performance of the Cisco routers under the real-world conditions created by high loads of network traffic, including increasingly used technologies such as cloud computing and bandwidth-heavy mobile applications.
The Cisco ASR 1000 routers are mid-range routers that support converged cloud connection, application sense, and comprehensive security and policy control. CNW selected Ixia solutions to test and validate these new Cisco routers based on Ixia's strong reputation for delivering comprehensive solutions that provide actionable assessment insights into network infrastructures.
Cisco and CNW selected the Ixia BreakingPoint FireStorm, XM12 testing platform and IxNetwork solutions to test for maximum load and simulation of real-life application traffic.
Ixia solutions simulated a wide variety of application traffic with the more than 160 complex real-world user applications and 34,000 security attacks available in Ixia's Application and Threat Intelligence Library. The library is updated with new traffic protocols every two weeks.
The Ixia solutions helped CNW significantly improve efficiency in the testing process with their easy-to-use features.
Using Ixia solutions, CNW confirmed that the Cisco ASR 1000 routers achieved 120Gbps network throughput with up to 12 million concurrent sessions at a rate of 480K new sessions per second.

"Working with Ixia and CNW shows our customers, including service providers and enterprises, the high performance and security available with the ASR 1000 series routers," said Barry Yang, Senior Product Manager, Cisco Systems (China) Networking Technology Co. Ltd. "These routers, proven by comprehensive testing with Ixia solutions, make it possible to transform and extend the enterprise WAN edge and high-end branch office in your borderless network."
"Through testing with Ixia solutions, the ASR 1000 series showed high performance on network applications processing, and when compared with the past testing on prior-generation products, the traffic processing and packet forwarding performance in the network layer significantly improved," said Dong Peixin, CNW. "Testing with Ixia helped prove that not only do the ASR 1000 series routers provide high performance and reliability, but they also ensure the improvement of user authentication, network monitoring and maintenance."
