CALABASAS, Calif. -- Ixia (Nasdaq:XXIA - News), a leading, global provider of IP network testing solutions, announced that its IxChariot application testing solution is deployed at several government locations creating a real-world test scenario by transmitting VoIP traffic and QoS mechanisms within the "Moonv6" IPv6 network.

"The goal of the DoD is to be compliant with IPv6 by FY 2008," said Capt. Dan Millane of the JITC. "The Moonv6 objective is to define the technology and construct a fundamental end-to-end, real-world distributed model to test the validity of IPv6 within a core network infrastructure."

The Moonv6 network is the world's largest multi-vendor IPv6 network, stretching from New Hampshire to California, and is a global collaboration between industry leaders, the North American IPv6 Task Force (NAv6TF), the UNH-IOL, Internet2, and U.S. governmental agencies. This latest round of Moonv6 tests focus on voice, wireless, firewalls and a host of advanced network and application-layer tests.

Ixia's IxChariot is the exclusive tool used to stage real world IPv6 application layer traffic throughout the interoperability and conformance test bed of this new round of tests for "Moonv6." Specifically, IxChariot is used to examine the reliability, functionality, and scalability of this nation-wide IPv6 Network.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
