BreakingPoint Systems, cutting-edge providers of next-generation network test equipment, today announced the commercial availability of its BPS-1000. The system will be the first in the market to offer complete network and security testing of layers 2 through 7 at the highest possible performance levels. BreakingPoint Systems BPS-1000 offers performance testing, stress testing, security testing and conformance testing in a single device.

Where we previously required three different testing systems, we can now use the BPS-1000 instead

BreakingPoint Systems, cutting-edge providers of next-generation network test equipment, today announced the commercial availability of its BPS-1000. The BPS-1000 is the industry's first network test system that enables multi-layer emulation testing at multi-gigabit speeds. The system will be the first in the market to offer complete network and security testing of layers 2 through 7 at the highest possible performance levels. BreakingPoint Systems BPS-1000 offers performance testing, stress testing, security testing and conformance testing in a single device.

"For nearly a decade, the network test and measurement market has seen zero innovation. Traditional test equipment is archaic and incapable of meeting the demands of today's evolving networks and applications. The BPS-1000 is based on the latest high speed networking technologies available in the market today," says Des Wilson, chief executive officer of BreakingPoint. "BreakingPoint Systems was founded to give today's high performance networking equipment manufacturers and their customers test tools to finally bridge the gap between the lab and the real world."

"Where we previously required three different testing systems, we can now use the BPS-1000 instead," said Ken Draper, consulting engineer, security solutions at Juniper Networks. "The ease of use and intuitive interface allows us to extend the testing capabilities to our systems engineers in the various regions with little or no training."

"Acknowledging the challenge of keeping pace with new technologies faced by test managers, BreakingPoint Systems has taken a new holistic approach to network testing by leveraging the latest network processing technology to allow concurrent testing at the highest possible performance levels," notes Frost & Sullivan analyst Sujan Sami.

The BPS-1000 is the complete solution for testing network equipment. The BPS-1000 provides:

  • Traditional layer 2/3 testing
  • Layer 4 TCP testing
  • Protocol Fuzzing
  • Application Simulation
  • Generation of over 3,000 security attacks
  • Full control over playback of captured traffic patterns

In addition, BreakingPoint Systems offers the Strike Pack service, an independent package to assist customers in the implementation of new applications. The package creates unique versions of attacks and any new vulnerability in product. It is integrated in the same test system without requiring a system upgrade.

Founded in September 2005, BreakingPoint is a privately held company located in Austin, Texas led by a world-class management team. The management team has built such companies as TippingPoint, now 3Com; NetSpeed, now Cisco Systems; NetWorth, now Hewlett Packard and Hekimian Laboratories, now Spirent Communications; this group of executives has once again created a company to deliver a solution to fill a major hole in the industry. With the commercial availability of the BPS-1000, the test industry changes today.
