ATLANTA -- Ixia (Nasdaq:XXIA), a leading provider of high-speed, multiport network performance analysis and network monitoring systems, announced today that it is teaming with Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:EXTR), a leader in Ethernet networking, to demonstrate leading-edge IPv6 capabilities at the SUPERCOMM tradeshow (Booth #11231) in Atlanta, June 4-6. IPv6 is essential for network growth as it overcomes the limitations of IPv4 by providing increased IP address space, enhanced routing, security, reduced administrative workload, and support for emerging mobile communications devices. Extreme Networks is at the forefront of IPv6 development. With trial installations deployed internationally, the SUPERCOMM demonstration reveals for the first time its high-performance IPv6-enabled switching and routing capabilities that establish its leadership position, providing best-of-breed solutions for next-generation networks. "We are very happy to utilize our award-winning IPv6 Test Series to help Extreme Networks demonstrate their support of this leading-edge technology," said Eran Karoly, vice president of marketing for Ixia, "Ixia's delivery of the first complete IPv6 test solution continues to help developers of next-generation networking equipment to support this technology and speed their time-to-market cycles. Underscoring the importance of this test suite, Ixia's IPv6 Test Series was recently selected as Best Of Interop at the NetWorld+Interop 2002 show in Las Vegas." The demonstration will feature Extreme Networks' BlackDiamond(R) 6808 core Ethernet switching platform handling simultaneous IPv4 and IPv6 traffic at wire speed, in the presence of RIPng routes being generated and flapped. The IPv6 Test Series includes IPv6 conformance validation utilizing Ixia's ANVL test suites, simultaneous IPv4 and IPv6 traffic generation and analysis at wire speed for testing dual-stack and tunneling migration methodologies, IPv6 encodes and decodes, as well as IS-IS and RIPng protocol emulation. Identification of IPv6 routers in a network is facilitated using the Neighbor Discovery Protocol (RFC 2461). Address Auto configuration (RFC 2462) and Path MTU Discovery Protocols are also supported.
