CALABASAS, Calif. -- Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA), a leading, global provider of IP performance test systems, announced today the first conformance test suite for Mobile Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). The test suite is included in the new release of Ixia's IxANVL(TM) test product. With this new release, Ixia is the only test vendor that enables network operators and equipment vendors to manage the transition from IPv4 to IPv6 for both wired and mobile networks.

"Extensive testing is prerequisite for the success of IPv6 and Mobile IPv6 - the next generation Internet," said Errol Ginsberg, Ixia CEO. "Ixia's expertise in testing has contributed to the success of today's Internet.Now, we are delivering the test solutions that are leading the transition toIPv6 and Mobile IPv6."

Ixia's IxANVL conformance test suite with Mobile IPv6 support can run over either Ixia's industry leading Optixia(TM) test platform or on stand-alone PC platforms. Ixia's IxANVL test suite emulates Mobile IPv6-capable nodes or routers at the control plane level, and executes an extensive set of test scenarios to determine how the device under test complies with Mobile IPv6 standards. In addition, IxANVL test suites are designed to validate variousIPv6 transition mechanisms and routing protocols. Ixia's test suite also tests problems due to incompatibility between legacy IPv4 infrastructure and multiple vendors' IPv6 systems under realistic load conditions.

Ixia supports IPv6 testing across its product line. Ixia's IxLoad (TM) triple play test capability validates network performance and device interoperability running voice, video and stateful data traffic over IPv6 networks. IxChariot(TM) verifies end-to-end performance metrics of IPv6 networks by simulating stateful Layer 4 through Layer 7 application traffic.IxNetwork(TM) provides a framework for executing large capacity performance and scalability testing, including a variety of IPv6 routing protocols and DHCPv6.

"The IPv6 market is dynamic and evolving. Mobile IPv6 is the next phase of this evolution," said says Jessy Cavazos, industry manager, Test & Measurement at Frost & Sullivan. "In the past, IXIA has been actively involved in the market transition from IPv4 to IPv6, participating in key industry projects such as Moonv6, etc. The company is once again playing a leading role in the market's move to Mobile IPv6 with the introduction of the first conformance test suite able to manage the market transition for both wired and wireless networks. IXIA is committed to advance this market and I believe we can expect additional announcements in the near future."
