Ixia Helps Fast Track Development of 100GbE Technologies
David Avery
August 14, 2014

Bandwidth requirements for enterprises, service providers and global data centers are growing daily, and 10 and 40GbE technologies are straining under the demand. Service providers and data centers are looking at high-density 100GbE networking infrastructure solutions to meet these demands, and equipment manufacturers are rapidly increasing port densities to match. With Ixia’s new support for CFP4 and QSFP28 transceivers, equipment manufacturers can use Ixia’s high-density 100GbE load module to assist the move from four or eight 100GbE ports per blade to up to 32 ports. For data centers this means a more efficient use of facility resources reducing rack space and power consumption per port – all while delivering greater network bandwidth.

Validating Unified Communications WAN / Wi-Fi Infrastructure
Matt Reyna

When deploying a unified communications (UC) application like Avaya, Microsoft Lync, or Polycom in an existing network infrastructure, it is likely that you will have problems. The age-old question is, “Whose problem is it?” It could be your network, your systems, or in the UC application — or maybe a combination thereof. This has become a hot issue not just for enterprises, but for UC application vendors as well who must constantly defend their applications over an issue that may stem from an enterprise’s faulty network, a service provider’s low bandwidth, or a mobile device that isn’t UC-ready.

Tunneling Traffic with OpenVPN
Dragos Comaneci
August 7, 2014

OpenVPN is an open-source solution that uses virtual private network (VPN) techniques for creating secure point-to-point or site-to-site network connections. Since it is open source, OpenVPN has been ported and embedded in several systems including wireless routers.

Authentication is done in OpenVPN by either using a pre-shared secret key, certificates, or username/password. It also uses the OpenSSL encryption library extensively, as well as the TLSv1 protocol, and contains lots of security and control features built-in.
