In today’s networks, the need to reconstruct live traffic for assessment is critical for successful deployment of network configurations, topologies and new network services. Modern networks now contain multiple state-aware devices that require realistic upper layer application traffic to fully exercise the network elements.
Together, Gigamon and Spirent have created the industry’s first solution for recreating actual application traffic in pre-production environments. The joint effort will characterize the live application flows in a production network using the Application Intelligence module within the Gigamon Visibility Fabric. This meta information is used to model traffic in assessment tools, such as Spirent’s CyberFlood and Spirent TestCenter, where it is used to statefully recreate the client and server behavior application flows.
