Ixia BreakingPoint Review

Offers a lot of options, very stable and good technical support


What is our primary use case?

We use the solution to simulate traffic within the cyber range. We also use it for legacy protocols.

What is most valuable?

The solution has many protocols and options, making it very flexible. 

What needs improvement?

The solution originally was hard to configure; I'm not sure if they've updated this to make it simpler, but if not, it's something that could be streamlined.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for one or two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I believe the solution to be stable.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support we receive is decent. So far, they've been helpful.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't previously use a different solution.

How was the initial setup?

The solution is complex. You need to be very knowledgeable in order to get the most out of it.

What about the implementation team?

We did use an integrator that assisted with the initial setup.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

For us, the pricing is somewhere around $12,000 a year. I'm unsure as to what new licenses now cost.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model.

I'd recommend the solution to others. We don't use all of its features, but it gives us what we need. I'd rate it nine out of ten.
