CALABASAS, Calif. -- Ixia (NASDAQ: XXIA), a leading, global provider of converged network IP performance test systems, announced today that Deutsche Telekom AG will migrate to Ixia’s newly announced NGY high-density 10 GE testing solution. The NGY hardware provides a seamless integration path for customers who want to take advantage of previous investment in IxN2X software and test scripting while requiring higher-density 10GE hardware previously not offered by the Agilent N2X product line. This melding of the N2X and Ixia product lines fulfils the promise of Ixia’s FUSION program announced in conjunction with the acquisition of the Agilent N2X platform.

Deutsch Telekom is using IxN2X to perform layer 2-3 testing of their network backbone under high traffic conditions, as well as to scale up traffic levels to see how the network performs under stressful load conditions. Ixia’s NGY emulates internet-scale routing topologies and traffic profiles, proving that DT’s network scales successfully without degradation in performance.

“Migrating to Ixia's next generation NGY load modules allows us to qualify and test QoS with large scale routers before putting them into our live network,” said Peter Pipping, Vice President System Qualification of DT’s Technical Engineering Center. “The NGY modules can be used with our existing IxN2X software and scripts, so integration was seamless.”
