Ixia Releases OpenFlow Test Solution

Ixia's IxNetwork and IxANVL test solutions now enable OpenFlow protocol emulation with integrated network traffic and offer a suite of OpenFlow compliance tests. The OpenFlow test solution helps network equipment manufacturers, service providers, and enterprises to verify protocol conformance and tune network designs before deployment.

Among the new capabilities, IxNetwork can now emulate an OpenFlow controller to modify flow table entries and then generate traffic to test the forwarding. For testing switch protocol conformance, IxANVL will have a new suite of OpenFlow v1.0 testing that includes testing cases for Open Networking Foundation (ONF) certification in alignment with the OF-Test 1.0 specification that is currently being finalized. Protocol conformance is important to not only ensure compatibility in a multi-vendor environment, but to pursue ONF certification.
