Cyber and Security Test Labs
Improve efficiency, speed, and performance of test labs
With security threats increasing in frequency, the need for effective cyber and security testing is also on the rise. You need to optimize your cyber and security test labs to improve efficiency, speed, and performance.
Cyber and security test lab challenges
Traditional test labs can be exceedingly wasteful due to ongoing infrastructure costs coupled with poor utilization. Test lab professionals are under growing pressure to rapidly configure complex network topologies in order to execute test scenarios without increasing operating expenses caused by labor intensive and error prone methods. Cyber and security testing adds additional stress as a result of demanding time constraints and an increased need for efficient network topology changes.

Solutions you can trust
NETSCOUT understands the challenges test lab professionals face in today’s complex cyber and security testing environments. Let us show you how our test optimization solutions enable improved efficiency, speed, and performance of test labs.
Traditional Test Lab Environment
Traditional test labs often include underutilized test tools connected through patch panels. They can be highly prone to error due to the need for physical changes and updates to dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of ports. These test labs are also exceedingly wasteful of CAPEX and OPEX due to ongoing infrastructure costs coupled with poor utilization. Cyber and security testing adds additional stress due to more demanding time constraints and increased demands for efficient topology changes.
A traditional test lab can grow complex over time, creating pockets of underutilized test equipment.
A NETSCOUT solution enables customers to optimize cyber and security test labs by providing innovative functionality that combines layer 1 switching with layer 2-4 intelligence. By replacing patch panels with layer 1 switches, such as the nGenius 3900 Series Packet Flow Switch, which enables simplified moves, adds, and changes of test tool connections, customers can dramatically improve the utilization of existing test lab equipment. With the layer 2-4 intelligence and functionality offered by the 3900 Series and its TestStream Management Software, customers can add capabilities including filtering, impairment, packet generation, test stream aggregation, and rate conversion to further improve test lab performance.
