Ixia Intros Load Module

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA), a leading provider of high-speed, multi-port network performance analysis systems, today introduced the industry's first fully-integrated OC-192c Packet Over SONET, OC-192c BERT, and 10GBASE-W WAN analysis solution within a single interface Load Module. This innovative Load Module provides an economical alternative to requiring separate OC-192c Packet Over SONET, OC-192c BERT, and 10GBASE-W WAN Load Modules. The Ixia Load Module is designed to significantly enhance the time-to-market and interoperability of 10GbE equipment, applications, and services being developed and deployed by Optical Chip and Component Manufacturers, Internet and Network Service Providers, Network Equipment Manufacturers, and Enterprise Users.

In addition, Ixia is introducing a comprehensive, full wire-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) family of performance verification products capable of generating and analyzing up to 15 million packets per second on each port. Ixia's new family of 10GbE Load Modules support IEEE 802.3ae compliant optical interfaces such as 10GBASE-R LAN, 10GBASE-X LAN WDM, and 10GBASE-W WAN, as well as electrical interfaces such as XGMII and XAUI. These highly innovative Load Modules enable performance verification of 10GbE PHYs, transceivers, switches, and routers utilized in the LAN, MAN, and WAN environments.
