XenaScale is a scalable Gigabit TCP test chassis which offers extreme performance for stateful traffic load testing, analysis and characterization of Ethernet equipment and network infrastructure. XenaScale supports 40/10/1G L4-7 interfaces.

Can your device or network handle extreme TCP performance?

XenaScale offers stateful end-to-end testing of network appliances such as switches, firewalls, routers, NAT routers, proxies, load-balancers, bandwidth shapers, and more. The platform is also suitable to characterize entire network infrastructure performance for TCP.

Developers of Ethernet-based network appliances can characterize their performance by measuring connection establishment and teardown rates, packet forwarding rate at large numbers of connections and identify performance bottlenecks. The platform is also ideal for rapid validation of performance or regression testing.

Developers of TCP-based application servers such as web- and FTP servers can measure TCP connection rates and verify robustness against TCP SYN attacks. HTTP get blasting can be used to verify web server performance and robustness.

XenaConnect is a free application included for ad-hoc test execution and remote management of test equipment located in multiple locations. Xena also offers an open scripting API (XenaScripting) for automating testing from any scripting environment and browser-based operation via XenaWeb.

Simple and flexible upgrade path

XenaScale can be easily upgraded for greater performance thanks to Xena’s flexible licensing model which lets you easily upgrade XenaScale by simply updating your license. This helps you protects your investment by spreading out capital expenditure across multiple quarters, and optimize your budget by purchasing additional performance once it is required.
