Cloud Visibility Overcomes Security Limitation of Turnkey Private Cloud

For government entities, network security is mission-critical and subject to strict regulations. That is why this customer, who was deploying a turnkey private cloud platform, was concerned when they realized their provider could not supply the data needed by their threat detection and security analytics solutions. Without the ability to examine packets for potential threats, their new private cloud would present a considerable risk to their network. In search of a solution to provide access to packet data, this government customer turned to Ixia, who worked alongside their security solutions provider to deploy a total cloud visibility solution and eliminate this serious security issue.

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.
