Ixia Announces Support for Adobe Flash Platform Testing

Ixia (NASDAQ: XXIA), a leading, global provider of network test solutions, announced an agreement with Adobe Systems Inc. that will provide Adobe® Flash® Media Streaming technology for Ixia’s testing purposes. Under this agreement, Ixia will develop application layer test emulation solutions as part of its award-winning IxLoad product and provide real-world, large-scale testing of media servers, caching systems, and content delivery networks (CDNs).

Deploying rich interactive video and audio content is synonymous with today’s Internet experience. Ixia’s IxLoad 5.0 will be the first product to incorporate Adobe Flash Player protocols as part of a multiplay testing solution. As the deployment of wireless and mobile networks continues to rise, testing the delivery of video and other media-rich services via CDNs is an important part of planning network infrastructures. The emulation of millions of interactive Flash Player sessions allows service providers to ensure a consistent and predictable user experience while delivering optimal network utilization.

“Adobe Flash technology is on over 98 percent of connected computers and more than one billion devices,” said Adobe’s John Collins, Global OEM Partner Manager, rich media solutions. “Because of its prevalence, our customers expect a high level of quality of experience when delivering content via the Adobe Flash Platform and must be confident of their media rich streaming abilities. Ixia’s IxLoad tests Flash Player protocols with realistic, high-capacity traffic emulation to accurately plan network capacity.”

IxLoad is a scalable solution for testing converged multiplay services and application delivery platforms. IxLoad emulates data, voice, and video subscribers and associated protocols for performance testing. Its unique and advanced subscriber modeling capabilities create realistic scenarios to validate subscriber quality of experience (QoE).

“Companies that provide content delivery devices and systems require rigorous testing to demonstrate that their networks can handle the traffic load of real-world applications,” said Atul Bhatnagar, president and CEO of Ixia. “Our integration with Adobe adds to Ixia’s extensive portfolio of IP video test solutions that address the needs of Internet and mobile video delivery businesses.”

IxLoad 5.0 is available immediately. For more information on IxLoad, go to http://www.ixiacom.com/products/ixload/index.php.

Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO expands the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.
Public clouds dominate IT conversations but the next phase of cloud evolutions are "multi" hybrid cloud environments. The winners in the cloud services industry will be those organizations that understand how to leverage these technologies as complete service solutions for specific customer verticals. In turn, both business and IT actors throughout the enterprise will need to increase their engagement with multi-cloud deployments today while planning a technology strategy that will constitute a significant part of their IT budgets in the very near future. As IoT solutions are growing rapidly, as well as security challenges growing exponentially, without a doubt, the cloud world is about to change for the better. Again.
Data center, on-premise, public-cloud, private-cloud, multi-cloud, hybrid-cloud, IoT, AI, edge, SaaS, PaaS... it's an availability, security, performance and integration nightmare even for the best of the best IT experts. Organizations realize the tremendous benefits of everything the digital transformation has to offer. Cloud adoption rates are increasing significantly, and IT budgets are morphing to follow suit. But distributing applications and infrastructure around increases risk, introduces complexity and challenges availability at every turn. To embrace DX and to come out on top, there are four underlying principles that should guide you. Understanding these four essentials along with their relevance and impact will elevate you to DX Hero status now. Jonathan will provide a high-level overview of these principles and how some of his organization's clients have embraced them w...
The level of trust we have with individuals, businesses, and technology affects our lives daily. This is important to remember when discussing new technologies. For example, our level of trust is a critical factor when evaluating a new technology as a potential solution for providing business value. Given the importance of trust, imagine one's reaction upon hearing that blockchain is a "trustless trust" system. On the surface, that does sound like an oxymoron. This paper discusses how "trustless trust" applies to blockchain. It will discuss the various consensus algorithms used to provide that trust, including the benefits and challenges of each. Key use case patterns will be provided as examples and what the impact of the tradeoffs between consensus algorithms.
Today's workforce is trading their cubicles and corporate desktops in favor of an any-location, any-device work style. And as digital natives make up more and more of the modern workforce, the appetite for user-friendly, cloud-based services grows. The center of work is shifting to the user and to the cloud. But managing a proliferation of SaaS, web, and mobile apps running on any number of clouds and devices is unwieldy and increases security risks. PJ Hough, Citrix Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer, discusses improving personal productivity with an evolved approach supporting modern workstyles and simplifying IT complexities to deliver the right experience to the right user at the right time, on any device.
