Network Testing

Nobody can afford to run network infrastructure or distributing network-related products without proper testing. This creates a market of network testing appliances. The testing is most commonly done by creating an artificial environment, where network traffic generators are deployed in the infrastructure. Since network appliances will face various types of traffic, the testing appliance has to be able to simulate as many scenarios as possible, which is achievable only through programmability.

An ideal traffic generator has to fulfill the following criteria: It can generate up to 100 Gbps, because that is the bandwidth of today. It is capable of generating all kinds of traffic: the shortest packets only, the longest packets only, or mixed packet length. It is fully programmable, so the network administrator or the network appliance vendor can run daily tests. Last but not least it can record time characteristics of network and traffic like jitter, delay, or detection of bursts.

What Netcope brings to the table are smart FPGA network cards that leverage the capability of 100 Gbps traffic generation and full programmability. In combination with commodity servers, they can be effectively used to test properties of networks such as latency/delays, jitter, error rate. They can collect statistics (RMON) for netflow IPfix. The option to split the solution between flexible software and low-latency deterministic hardware with clock-accurate packet processing opens a way to build a powerful solution. 

Netcope Products Offer:

  • Full 100Gbps simultaneous throughput RX (analyzer) & TX (generator) to software

  • Programmability: we allow to build HW-based testers

  • Support of multiple technologies on a single card (100/40GE + 10GE)

  • Support of high-precision (nanosecond) hardware timestamping

Netcope Success Stories


NSF-100G2-Picomass-Netcope Network Traffic Monitoring

Picomass uses Netcope Session Filter in the IPS200 DPI solution because NSF is capable of offloading traffic to hardware. This makes real-time DPI on 100G networks possible.

Flowmon Networks

Flowmon Networks Network Traffic Monitoring

Flowmon Networks aims to develop a new generation of NetFlow/IPFIX probes that can monitor and process traffic of 100GE high-speed networks. Because of that, Flowmon Networks needs to find a network card that would be able of handling 100 GE monitoring requirements.
