Spirent Demonstrates Industry’s First Open Framework Cloud Test Platform with Wedge Networks’ Next-Generation Network Security Solution
|By Business Wire
|March 31, 2014 10:03 AM EDT
Communications, a provider of networks, device and applications
testing products, today announced that it is collaborating with Wedge
Networks to demonstrate the new Spirent
Velocity virtual lab environment. Selected as a Best of Interop 2014
Finalist, Spirent Velocity is a unique cloud-based virtual lab
environment that enables
testing of Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Function
Highlights of the Demonstration
The joint demonstration, featured at Spirent’s booth #727, showcases how
NFV providers can easily setup and run tests to quickly bring
high-performance virtual appliances and applications to market. In this
demonstration, Spirent Velocity will enable the provisioning of virtual
devices-under-test, such as the Wedge Networks NFV-based security
solution, dramatically reducing the capital expenditure associated with
physical labs. Spirent Velocity will showcase how rapid test setup and
execution with packaged methodologies from Spirent TestCenter Virtual
and Spirent Avalanche Virtual lets users quickly gauge performance and
security in a stressed cloud. Furthermore, the demo will highlight
Spirent Velocity’s ability to orchestrate Spirent TestCenter Virtual on
Solutions in the Demonstration
Spirent Velocity helps accelerate time to market and reduce CAPEX and
OPEX associated with traditional test beds. This virtual test lab allows
users to set-up a virtualized test fabric that emulates their desired
deployment architecture including choice of hypervisors, guest operating
systems, reference server setup, NFV and other technologies such as SDN
controllers and switches.
Wedge Networks will be providing the first-ever demonstration of NFV for
Security (NFV-S) solution. NFV-S is a new paradigm in providing network
security for the ISP and Data Center markets being launched by Wedge
Networks that brings advanced network security capabilities into
virtualized functions - all in a complete, real-time and elastic
solution. The WedgeOS™ powered Wedge Networks Cloud Security Platform™
provides an elastic, embedded and on-demand solution to deliver a
security capability independent of physical network topology and
hardware networking systems.
Supporting Executive Quotes
“As providers start evaluating network function virtualization solutions
and deploying NFV in their networks, they need to know that on-demand
security services can be layered over the virtualized network,” said
Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research. “The
NFV-S solution is the type of forward-looking solution that providers
need if they want to deploy NFV-compatible security services - no matter
the location, service, or bandwidth.”
“Wedge Network’s NFV-based security solution will be deployed in the
cloud, so it makes absolute sense to test our solution in the cloud as
well,” said Dr. Hongwen Zhang, CEO of Wedge Networks. “Spirent Velocity
provides us the ability to rapidly provision the virtual test bed, and
then verify that our virtual solution maintains performance while
scaling under rapidly increasing load.”
“Spirent is pleased to be partnering with Wedge Networks for this joint
demonstration,” said Patrick Johnson, Spirent’s vice-president of cloud
services solutions. “Wedge Networks is re-inventing network security and
Spirent Velocity is re-inventing the world of test itself, ultimately
accelerating the transformation of the network.”

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care.
I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind.
Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph.
