Ixia delivers first 200/100/50GE speed test capability for the K400 400GE QSFP-DD test system

Sydney, Australia – Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, today announced that Ixia, a Keysight Business, is first to ship a 400GE test system with multi-rate 200/100/50GE speed options for the K400 400GE QSFP-DD load module family. These multi-rate speed options allow network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) to test products at speeds based on the new IEEE 802.3cd draft standard and IEEE 802.3bs standard using the 400GE QSFP-DD module at 200GE, 100GE, and 50GE speeds, from a single port.

The demand for bandwidth intensive data centre services such as 4K video and 5G mobile network services is pushing data centre and network operators to equipment with the smallest footprint, lowest power consumption, and fastest electrical interfaces. As a result, network equipment manufacturers are moving from technology based on 28Gb/s electrical lanes with non-return-to-zero (NRZ) encoding to faster 56Gb/s electrical lanes with PAM4 encoding.

“Flexible test solutions are necessary to develop higher speed, multi-rate, high density Ethernet products for the leaders in the data centre space,” said Sunil Kalidindi, vice president product management, at Keysight’s Ixia Solutions Group. “Network devices such as routers, switches and servers must be able to operate at all new speeds in the IEEE 802.3cd draft specification and IEEE 802.3bs on most, or all, ports on their devices.”

56Gb/s technology is at the forefront of Ethernet speed evolution—moving from legacy 25GE, 50GE, and 100GE (based on 28Gbs technology) to the new 200GE, 100GE, and 50GE interfaces expected to come to market this year. The Ixia K400 QSFP-DD load module is the only shipping test solution that can validate these technologies using 400GE-port fan-out media to deliver a future-proof platform for testing 400GE, 200GE, 100GE, or 50GE multi-speed or single-speed network devices.

Brennan IT LogoSydney, Australia – Brennan IT has been named the AusCERT 2018 Member Organisation of the Year in recognition that the company fixed the largest percentage of vulnerabilities or incidents reported by AusCERT through its member security incident notifications (MSINs).

Stephen Sim, CEO, Brennan IT, said, “This award wasn’t decided by a vote or a panel; it was based purely on performance and numbers.

“Combatting cyber risks is a key strategic business issue for organisations around the world. Like many other businesses, Brennan IT continues to search for ways to proactively improve cybersecurity across the organisation. This award recognises that the business has done that successfully and, although the work will never be done with regard to cybersecurity, it confirms Brennan IT’s ongoing proactive commitment to security.”

Brennan IT takes a multi-layered approach to cybersecurity recognising that attacks can come from a wide range of sources. It’s essential that individual security products and technologies work together to form a cohesive security fabric that covers the complete ICT environment – from the network and endpoint to the cloud and beyond.

Deloitte signed as the first Australian Certified Implementation Partner for SAP Concur

Concur LogoSydney, Australia – The very first Concur customer in Australia and New Zealand has recently become Concur’s first Certified Implementation Partner (CIP). The certification means Deloitte will configure SAP Concur solutions directly for its clients, along with continuing to provide existing client-side integration services including solution design, project governance, and change management.

While Deloitte has already been advising businesses on how to integrate SAP Concur into both large-scale SAP-based enterprise and mid-market programs this new agreement takes that alliance one step further.

Matthew Goss, managing director, ANZ, SAP Concur, said, “This milestone certification with Deloitte reflects the increasing demand in the Australian and New Zealand marketplace for smarter and more scalable travel, expense, and invoice management solutions delivered as-a-service. As businesses have explored digital transformation, the value of these solutions has become crystal clear: companies are saving money through reduced expenses and streamlined processes. SAP Concur’s relationship with Deloitte is incredibly strong and this expanded alliance will let new customers gain similar benefits by using SAP Concur.”

Under the CIP agreement, Deloitte can now configure the SAP Concur expense technology solution that was previously done only by the internal SAP Concur team. Deloitte services now include: overall project management; policy and solution design; setup, integration, review, and validation; deployment assistance including support and training; and handoff to support.

The certification process was rigorous and included requirements for Deloitte to undertake classroom training, and participate in SAP Concur on-the-job training and support.

Greg Haskins, Advisory Partner, Deloitte, said, “Being recognised as a SAP Concur Certified Implementation Partner was the logical next step for our practice, having already worked with over 80 clients in adopting SAP Concur.  This designation means that we can deliver the end-to-end implementation cycle, which gives our clients a lot of confidence in our time-boxed delivery approach. Our experience to date has shown that in most cases, adopting this solution shouldn’t be a drawn out and expensive process.”

Bradley Burt, partner and SAP practice leader, Australia, Deloitte, said, “This milestone demonstrates Deloitte’s continued commitment to invest in one of our most strategic alliance partners globally, and positions us to support our clients across the full SAP product portfolio.”

Matthew Goss said, “Appointing Deloitte as SAP Concur’s first CIP in the region provides the market with additional options for implementing SAP and Concur solutions. In Deloitte, customers have access to a company with immense knowledge and experience both as a long-time customer and a partner of SAP Concur. It fits neatly with our goal to take companies of all sizes beyond automation to a completely connected spend management solution.”

Ixia, a Keysight Business, enables VMware NSX partners to accelerate testing and reduce certification time from months to weeks

Sydney, Australia – Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that Ixia, a Keysight Business, has collaborated with VMware to develop a solution that accelerates partner certification of network products to interoperate with the VMware NSX network virtualisation platform.

The solution uses Ixia’s IxNetwork to enable network equipment manufacturer (NEM) partners to self-certify their products with VMware NSX in a range of network topologies, helping them save significant costs while improving time-to-market.

VMware NSX delivers a completely new operational model for networking that forms the foundation of the Software-Defined Data Centre. The NSX platform supports any IP-based underlay hardware, and the VMware NSX Technology Partner Program provides support and certification for the integration of partners’ hardware switching and routing solutions with NSX. Ixia and VMware have worked together to develop and incorporate the required testing capabilities in the IxNetwork solution to facilitate the certification process for NEMs. Enterprises can then validate their network performance with the solution as well.

“Ixia has a strong reputation in network protocol and performance testing, and working with them has enabled VMware to significantly streamline the certification process for NSX partners,” stated Umesh Mahajan, Vice President and General Manager of the NSX Platform at VMware. “The IxNetwork solution provides the performance and flexibility crucial to enabling our partners to interoperate with NSX in diverse customer environments. Ixia has been able to deliver a solution that we can use in our own labs, and be offered to our partners for deployment in their labs for new and ongoing certification testing in their own labs. We are pleased to be working with Ixia as we enhance the value of the NSX ecosystem.”

IxNetwork provides VMware NSX partners advanced capabilities including Ixia’s new Open vSwitch Database (OVSDB) Emulation. OVSDB is a management protocol for SDN environments used by the NSX controller to create hardware VXLAN Tunnel End Points (VTEP), and VXLAN encapsulation and de-encapsulation. Ixia’s OVSDB Emulation eliminates the need for complex server infrastructure during testing.

“Ixia and VMware have collaborated to accelerate the self-certification network equipment manufacturers need to interoperate with VMware NSX,” stated Scott Westlake, vice president of Business Development at Ixia Solutions Group, a Keysight Business. “Using IxNetwork, the NSX testing verifies control and data plane interoperability and performance, and provides optional scale testing during the development and certification phase. It offers NEM partners and enterprises the ability to test without the need to create very large, complex, and expensive server environments, improving their certification and accelerating their time-to-market.”
