Application Assurance

Ixia IxChariot

Pre-Deployment Live Network Application Assessment Tool, Application Performance and Security Resilience Solutions to validate, secure, and optimize physical and virtual networks. Threat Inteligence Testing, IP, LTE

Applications only perform as well as the networks upon which they run. Challenging real-time business services such as voice over IP (VoIP), unified communications (UC) and streaming video can be seriously impacted by bottlenecks and other hard-to-pinpoint issues in the network.

Ixia IxChariot XR200 Active Monitoring Probe for the IxChariot Product Line

To ensure performance, IxChariot provides IT professionals with an industry-leading solution for assessing and troubleshooting networks and applications before and after deployment. Trusted by thousands of enterprises and government agencies worldwide, IxChariot equips users to confidently assess the performance and reliability of applications running on wired, wireless, and virtual data centers.

 /IxChariot Pre-Deployment and Live Network and Application Assessment Tool

The solution consists of an IxChariot Server and performance endpoints distributed throughout multiple sites and data centers, end-user PCs, and mobile devices. Real-world applications are simulated to predict device, system, and network performance under realistic load conditions.

Version 9.0: "IxChariot Anywhere"

The latest version of IxChariot can be run from the cloud with the main console hosted from a single site or data center and accessed publicly by teams at multiple locations. Patented Ixia technology allows endpoints to traverse company firewalls to deliver a seamless and elegant solution for assessing performance between private and cloud networks—without compromising security.

Highlights include:

  • Network diagnostics captured virtually anywhere
  • Provides increasingly high ROI as more users leverage the tool to meet a wider range of business and technology challenges
  • Simulates various protocols and applications in a distributed network across thousands of endpoints
  • Designed specifically for IT teams
  • Verifies SLAs with instant end-to-end assessment
  • Measures device performance over Wi-Fi
  • Validates hypervisor performance
  • Assessments can be conducted from any standard web browser
