At RSA Conference 2015, Ixia to demonstrate the PerfectStorm 100GbE, industry’s only 100GbE-enabled, content-aware device that validates and ensures security resilience for today’s traffic-intensive networks. The demo will use Juniper Networks’ new hardware for its Juniper Networks SRX5800 Services Gateway to demonstrate carrier-grade, next-gen firewall technology scaling to 2Tbps of workloads.
“The threat landscape continues to evolve and service providers and data center operators need to secure their 100GbE core networks,” said Denise Shiffman, corporate vice president of product management, Juniper Networks. “Companies are forced to not only meet greater and unpredictable demands for bandwidth on their network but also ensure they have efficient, fast and scalable protection in place. Ixia and its PerfectStorm solution are instrumental in enabling us to validate and test our new hardware for the SRX5800 Services Gateway at massive scale.”
With PerfectStorm 100GbE, consumers can test carrier core, data center core, and 100G transport networks with native 100Gbps interfaces at a scale of near-terabit speeds for real-world applications and security workloads, the press release states.
“Enterprises and service providers are looking to next-generation firewall and threat protection solutions to block attacks and keep their networks secure,” said Jim Smith, vice president of service provider and NEMs solutions marketing, Ixia. “We are pleased to have been selected by Juniper Networks to validate the throughput, reliability and security features of its SRX5800. The Ixia PerfectStorm scales to nearly a terabit of application traffic in a single system and generates stateful applications and malicious traffic that simulate millions of real-world end-users to validate next generation infrastructure devices.”
