Spirent Avalanche Virtual Helps NTT Communications Deliver Reliable and Secure Cloud Services to Enterprise Customers

Spirent Communications, a leader in testing networks, services and devices, announced today that the Testing-as-a-Service (TaaS) capability of Spirent Avalanche Virtual was demonstrated for the first time within NTT Communications’ Enterprise Cloud and Cloudn platforms. The demonstration, coordinated by TOYO Corporation, Spirent’s exclusive partner in Japan, was showcased during Interop Tokyo 2014, June 11-13, where the offering received Best of Show special prize in the Cloud Service category.

Demonstration Highlights

Public and private cloud networks enable enterprises to leverage the cost savings and flexibility of virtualization. TaaS on a cloud platform helps IT teams validate that their cloud service provider is delivering high performance, secure services that meet the Quality of Service (QoS) levels and SLA requirements of the organization. Testing the cloud implementation from within helps to reduce the costs associated with downtime and to overcome the constraints of lab-based testing methodologies.

Spirent Avalanche Virtual’s TaaS offering supports the latest application traffic patterns including YouTube, chat and online games, as well as the typical traffic types such as HTTP, FTP and mail, giving users the flexibility to adjust performance testing according to their traffic volume and to make changes as they occur in the workloads.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
