Ixia Demos at OFC/NFOEC

CALABASAS, Calif. -- Ixia (NASDAQ: XXIA), the leading global provider of converged IP and wireless network test solutions, is expanding its WAN optimization offering by introducing the 40GE ImpairNet load module. Ixia’s 40GE ImpairNet is the industry's first 40GE test solution for emulating real-world network impairments. Testing a variety of wide area network (WAN) applications, the new 40GE ImpairNet module emulates the latency inherent between data center clouds and validates whether the end-to-end performance is impacted by the delay within the WAN cloud. Ixia will demonstrate the 40GE ImpairNet module at this year’s OFC conference in Los Angeles from March 6 – 8.

The growing demands placed on data centers by media-rich and bandwidth hungry applications requires the use of Higher Speed Ethernet (HSE) connections between data center clouds. The ability to completely characterize the latency performance of data center clouds over HSE links is critical for time-sensitive applications – such as financial transactions – where even milliseconds of delay can result in a loss of millions of dollars.
