BreakingPoint's Network Processor Driven Architecture Complimented by an LTE Solution

By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributor

Continuous Computing (News - Alert), a provider of integrated platform solutions that address the mobile broadband capacity challenge, announced that BreakingPoint Systems selected its Trillium Long Term Evolution or “LTE (News - Alert)” protocol software.

Trillium enables BreakingPoint Systems to emulate aspects of an LTE network in order for carriers and equipment vendors to optimize and harden the resiliency of their LTE devices and infrastructure prior to deployment, according to company officials.

Continuous Computing’s LTE solutions differ from traditional solutions as they allow equipment vendors to get to market much quicker. The company also offers a set of feature-rich validation solutions that is critical to any telecom technology’s evolution from lab trials to real deployments.

BreakingPoint’s rapid entry into the LTE market signals this maturation process is well underway, the company added.

Continuous Computing’s Trillium LTE protocol software is optimized for multi-core, multi-threaded network processors. Trillium software has enabled the company to maintain a clear market advantage in enabling faster time to market for network equipment providers and has driven the company’s numerous design wins in the LTE space.

BreakingPoint’s patented network processor-driven architecture powers the BreakingPoint Storm Cyber Tomography Machine or “CTM (News - Alert).” By applying its technology, BreakingPoint has established itself as the standard by which carriers, equipment manufacturers, governments and enterprises measure, harden and optimize the resiliency of network and data center infrastructures.

“Representing the company’s 16th LTE customer win, our work with BreakingPoint marks a key milestone for the Trillium LTE product line and is further evidence that global LTE adoption is progressing quickly,” said Todd Mersch, director of product line management, Continuous Computing, in a statement.

“By working with Continuous Computing, BreakingPoint engineers were able to model the LTE landscape and can now provide carriers and equipment vendors with a complete and easy-to-use measurement and validation solution,” Mersch added.

According to Dennis Cox (News - Alert), chief technology officer and co-founder, BreakingPoint, Carrier networks entering the LTE arena will face a crush of dynamic traffic from user equipment such as smartphones, netbooks and tablet computers which will stress networks like never before, forcing carriers and equipment vendors to rethink LTE testing.

“Validating the resiliency of LTE networks requires the ability to recreate real-world application and attack traffics on a massive scale in a highly controlled environment,” Cox added. “By working with Continuous Computing and using Trillium LTE software, BreakingPoint has scaled its network validation capabilities and now provides coverage for 130+ applications and thousands of security attacks.”

Back in September Continuous Computing formed a partnership with NetLogic Microsystems (News - Alert) to create 40G ATCA Packet Processing, which according to company officials is the industry's highest performance solution, TMCnet reported.
