CALABASAS, Calif. -- Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA), a leading, global provider of IP performance test systems, announced today the latest release of IxChariotR, the popular tool for simulating real-world applications to predict network infrastructure performance. The new IxChariot 6.40 supports multiple clock synchronization techniques, including external clock synchronization to Network Time Protocol (NTP) Stratum-0 clock sources such as GPS-based clocks. This provides more accurate video and audio media quality measurements using one-way delay, jitter and MOS scores enabling both large enterprises and service providers to better manage their SLAs and improve Quality of Experience for their customers.IxChariot 6.40 also includes Auto-Recovery of tests when errors are caused by network conditions. This enables more reliable testing of large-scale, unpredictable networks such as those carrying IP services over wireless.

Novarum, an independent consulting firm providing comprehensive broadband wireless advisory, analysis and testing services, uses IxChariot for its ongoing Wireless Broadband Review, which compares the performance and availability of metropolitan Wi-Fi networks with 3G and 2.5G cellular services. IxChariot measures application delay as well as download and upload throughput for all available wireless services. "Metropolitan wireless broadband networks are becoming ubiquitous.IxChariot is the gold standard tool in both assessing the technologies being deployed in these networks and in monitoring the user quality of experience," said Ken Biba, managing director of Novarum. "This new release will enable us to keep up with the overwhelming speed with which these networks are being deployed. It will also help us to better assess the ability of these networks to deliver voice and data services."
