BYD Plans For Growth With Faster Automotive Ethernet Testing

BYD Plans For Growth With Faster Automotive Ethernet Testing

BYD, one of the largest automobile manufacturers in China, needed to upgrade to Ethernet for the communication technology in their car network. This modernization shift would connect essential components like the digital instruments, driving data recorder, the panoramic ECU, and the AVB switch allowing faster testing when new capabilities are added. The customer was using an older, but well known, controller area network (CAN) for their system bus. The move to Automotive Ethernet provided higher-quality, lower latency, time synchronization of audio and video in Ethernet standard format to transmit realtime audio and video streams. The upgrade resulted in a reduction of test time by 50% with a Layer 1-7 end-to-end solution.

Keysight Streamlines SD-WAN Adoption with Hawkeye Monitoring from Ixia

Software-defined wide area networks, or “SD-WANs,” can reduce telecom costs, lessen the burden on operations teams, and improve application performance — if deployments go according to plan. Several challenges came into play when test and measurement market leader Keysight Technologies embarked on a global initiative to replace leased lines with broadband service from three global Internet Service Providers (ISPs). Read the case study to learn how Keysight used the Hawkeye monitoring solution from Ixia to overcome initial and ongoing SD-WAN challenges including: - Qualifying ISP circuits on a global basis - Ensuring application quality before and after migration - Managing new vendor relationships and SLAs - Proactively monitoring voice and video quality Learn more about SD-WAN adoption and why Keysight’s Senior IT Systems Architect Joe Giegel says, “Other monitoring solutions that are deployed centrally can monitor what’s happening at other locations, but they don’t give us the same insight into the actual user experience with applications.”

Keysight Optimizes Massive Network Security Infrastructure Upgrade

Keysight Optimizes Massive Network Security Infrastructure Upgrade

Keysight’s infrastructure upgrade was a massive and costly endeavor, so the IT team was alarmed when, midway through a worldwide embedded data center firewall deployment, they ran into unexpected issues with the vendor of choice. They used BreakingPoint to figure out why the firewall wasn’t operating as promised and decided to check the performance of the second-choice firewall concurrently. This resulted in a proper bake-off where the two firewall vendors were placed side by side and tested with traffic patterns that closely simulated Keysight’s production traffic flow. This case study describes three days of testing that resulted in an unexpected next-generation firewall (NGFW) purchase decision.
