AUSTIN, Texas -- Today, BreakingPoint users realized a 2X boost in testing performance with a simple firmware upgrade, enabling them to now generate blended Layer 4-7 application traffic at up to 40 Gigabits per second (Gbps). BreakingPoint's innovative network processor technology powers this unprecedented throughput while making the BreakingPoint Elite field-upgradeable and future-proof.

-- BreakingPoint Elite packs an enormous punch in a 3-slot chassis with the testing industry's highest 10 GigE port density, lowest cost per TCP session, lowest cost per Gigabit of blended Layer 4-7 traffic, and lowest power consumption.

-- BreakingPoint Elite's innovative architecture includes three distinct but integrated layers including a hardware layer featuring a blend of FPGAs, network processors and embedded processors. BreakingPoint's innovative network processor technology empowers users with easily upgradeable testing equipment including weekly application protocols and security strikes and monthly software enhancements.

-- BreakingPoint's all-in-one service and support program allows every BreakingPoint Elite user immediate access to these weekly application protocols and security strikes, same-day complete Microsoft® Tuesday coverage and monthly software enhancements.

-- Additional BreakingPoint Elite enhancements released today include automated profiles for RFC 2544 benchmark network tests. The addition of RFC 2544 to the BreakingPoint application profiles allows users to easily combine realistic application protocols to emulate different types of network traffic for these benchmark tests.
