CALABASAS, Calif. -- Ixia (NASDAQ: XXIA), the leading, global provider of converged IP network test solutions, today announced that IxVeriWave, its recent product line acquisition, now supports IPv6 testing over Wi-Fi networks and access points. IxVeriWave’s WaveTest suite of testing products are the first to market that address a new generation of WLAN infrastructure equipment, and enable wireless service providers, equipment manufacturers and enterprises to ensure that new offerings and network deployments are fully IPv6 compliant and backward compatible.

In recent years, the popularity of mobile devices such as smart phones, iPads, iPods, Internet radio, DVRs, game consoles and the like has depleted the global pool of IPv4 addresses, restricting growth in major markets such as Asia. As the IPv6 protocol compensates for the shortage, ABI Research estimates that worldwide mobile broadband-enabled IPv6 subscriptions will reach one billion by the end of this year. IxVeriWave WaveTest solutions uniquely allow service providers, equipment manufacturers and enterprises to perform crucial performance and compatibility testing to ensure successful migration to IPv6 in both public and private infrastructures.

Ixia’s suite of IPv6 testing solutions equips service providers, equipment manufacturers and enterprises with test plans and tools to fully evaluate the IPv6 readiness of each device, system or end-to-end network. IxVeriWave’s IPv6 testing furthers Ixia’s end-to-end IPv6 capabilities by providing comprehensive IPv6 testing from the Wi-Fi access point to the IP network core. As the “gold standard” development and deployment testing solution for wireless infrastructures and devices, WaveTest solutions enable the thorough testing of newly enhanced functionalities, as well as the ability to generate and test how well systems handle IPv6 and IPv4 clients concurrently.
