CEO’s Perspective

Virtualization is a widespread trend in the industry.
Virtualizing an infrastructure brings tremendous cost savings to users.
With rapid technology growth, proprietary, hardware-based solutions are becoming obsolete and the need for easy and cost-effective virtualized IP test solutions is on the rise.
It is important to identify and focus on the growing and changing end-user requirements.


•The virtualized IP test equipment market covered in this study consists of scalable and fully virtualized test solutions that are suitable for testing both physical devices under test (pDUT) and virtual devices under test (vDUT).
•Such solutions must utilize industry standard servers such as Cisco UCS, Dell PowerEdge, HP ProLiant, and/or IBM.
•These industry standard servers are x86 architecture data center server platforms consisting of computing hardware, virtualization support, and management software.
•These solutions also support all major hypervisors such as VMware ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V, KVM, and Xen.
•Some of the examples of virtualized IP test solutions are Spirent TestCenter Virtual, Spirent Avalanche Virtual, Shenick TeraVM, Ixia IxNetwork VM, and Ixia IxLoad VM.

This global study includes the following regions:

•North America: Canada and the United States
•Europe: Western, Central, and Eastern Europe; and Russia
•Asia-Pacific: Countries that are on the western border of the Pacific Ocean (including those on the Indo-Chinese peninsula), the Pacific Islands, and Central Asia
•Emerging Markets: Central and South America, the Caribbean islands, the Middle East, and Africa The various end-user segments include:
•Service providers (SPs)
•Network equipment manufacturers (NEMs)


Virtualization is a widespread trend in the industry. Virtualization—the decoupling of application software and operating systems from the underlying server hardware—has been around for about xx years, but has experienced a boost recently as enterprises look for ways to deliver IT services more cost effectively and efficiently. Virtualization enables physical server resources (processor and memory) to be dynamically allocated among multiple applications and workloads.
Virtualization Adoption by Company Size, US, 2013
In a virtualized environment, applications are deployed as all-inclusive virtual machines (VMs) that contain application code, operating system, and configuration in a self-contained package. Because the operating and deployment logic reside with the application code, rather than installed separately on the server, the VM can be moved and loaded onto any hypervisor-equipped server hardware, via a management console, as easily as moving a file.
Virtualizing an infrastructure brings tremendous cost savings to users. For many companies, the largest benefit of server virtualization that allows multiple operating systems to be installed on a single server is reduction of the amount of hardware required to run all the software necessitated by the business.
Consolidating servers using a virtualization process not only provides savings in terms of how many physical machines must be bought and maintained, but also potentially reduces the amount of physical space that a company needs for its servers or data center.
Today, virtualization is widespread, with xx% of all businesses reporting they have implemented server virtualization in their data centers. There is significant potential for growth in the market with adopters of virtualization enthusiastically embracing the model.
