CALABASAS, Calif. -- Ixia (NASDAQ:XXIA), a leading, global provider of IP performance test systems, today announced that a single port on its XMV16 LAN Services Module — running Ixia’s IxNetwork™ test software — has scaled to 11,582,100 routes across 800 emulated routers in an independent comprehensive test conducted by Isocore at its Internetworking Lab, located in Reston, Va.

The goal of the test was to verify the scalability and stability of the XMV16 module’s control plane. The module’s scalability was validated in what Isocore calls a “testing the tester” environment, in which a major manufacturer’s carrier-class router was used as a device under test (DUT). Isocore conducted a multiprotocol scenario where four routing protocols — OSPFv2, OSPFv3, BGP, and BGP4+ — were enabled on a single test port. Isocore performed the test using its unique carrier multiservice, single-port scaling, benchmarking methodology. Ixia’s XMV16 LAN Services Module operated in its Optixia® XM2 field-proven, multiservice test chassis.

“It is quite challenging to create an environment for testing test equipment with a DUT that can scale to the tester’s capabilities,” said Dr. Bijan Jabbari, president of Isocore. “The observed results demonstrate that Ixia’s XMV16 LAN Services Module does indeed support multiple protocols in a highly scalable environment.”
