Ixia IxChariot

Instant performance assessment of complex networks from pre-deployment to production

Ixia IxChariot™ instantly assesses and troubleshoots networks and applications before and after deployment. This powerful assessment tool uses software agents—Performance Endpoints—to simulate application traffic and deliver key performance metrics to a central console for easy management. The result is a fully instrumented system for confidently assessing the performance and reliability of applications running on a wide variety of networks, including wired, wireless, and virtual data centres. Pre-deployment, IT can run what-if scenarios to predict an application’s impact on the network. After deployment, on-demand network diagnostics are carried out in an instant.
