CALABASAS, Calif. -- Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA) today unveiled the XAir solution to the crowds at 4G World in Chicago, demonstrating live how operators can now use one solution to validate LTE base station performance and bring enhanced network quality of experience to their networks. As the first comprehensive LTE base station validation solution, XAir creates true mobile user behaviour to provide operators with performance insight to make informed equipment selection, design resilient mobile networks, accurately plan capacity and quickly troubleshoot problems. Attendees of 4G World in Chicago from October 29 to November 1 can visit booth #332 for a live demonstration.

LTE is the fastest-growing mobile technology ever, with the LTE infrastructure market projected to grow to $17.5 billion by 2016, according to leading research firm Infonetics. But before operators spend billions of dollars on LTE equipment and deployments, they must evaluate and validate the network QoE before it is deployed live to subscribers. LTE base stations are at the heart of LTE networks, and as such, their performance, capacity and quality significantly affect the perceived network QoE.

Ixia’s XAir is the industry’s only product to support three critical dimensions of LTE network validation, realistic subscriber and service modelling, massive scalability, and comprehensive QoE measurements. Support of all three elements is critical to properly evaluate LTE base stations. XAir provides realistic subscriber modelling, supporting web, voice and video applications, all LTE mobility types, and modelling of radio characteristics — cell edge, cell centre and user movements. With support for more than 1,000 emulated user equipment’s per sector and more than 6,000 per chassis, XAir is a highly scalable solution.
