Ixia Opens State of the Art Proof-of-Concept Lab and Executive Briefing Center in Silicon Valley


Demonstrates A City-Scale Network with More Than 100,000 Truly Converged Multi-Play Subscribers

CALABASAS, Calif.– Ixia (NASDAQ: XXIA), a leading global provider of IP performance test systems, today announced the opening of “iSimCity,” an executive briefing center and proof-of-concept (PoC) lab adjacent to its sales and services offices in Santa Clara, Calif. Today Ixia will conduct a city-scale demonstration on assuring Quality of Experience (QoE) in high performance, converged multi-play networks.

With the ability to conduct city-scale testing at iSim City, customers can access thousands of test ports and aggregate traffic in the range of 10-100 Gbps, emulate hundreds of thousands of subscribers/users and generate millions of routes with thousands of routing peers. They also can conduct system testing by emulating dozens of infrastructure servers, including load balancers, denial of service defenders, switches, routers, video servers, SIP proxies, and DNS and DHCP servers.

“Our goal is to provide carrier grade scale with real-world network emulation that will provide quick proof to our customers that Ixia’s test solutions are essential in getting their products and services to market more quickly,” said Atul Bhatnagar, Ixia president and COO. “iSimCity has all the industry-leading Ixia software and hardware solutions so customers can be assured that their equipment and services are benchmarked with the best of breed testing solutions.”

Network equipment manufacturers, service providers and enterprises often request proof-of-concept demonstrations, at scale, before they will commit to purchasing test applications and equipment. Both test hardware and software must function with the devices tested.

Ixia’s iSimCity PoC lab can complement companies’ existing test labs and accelerate time to market by adding bandwidth for in-house projects, or handle short lead time requests for testing that their in-house test resources cannot schedule. And with Ixia’s Test Conductor, the entire test plan design and execution can be automated to speed the same process to just a fraction of the time.

In addition the PoC test facilities and executive briefings, customers can take advantage of Ixia’s professional services and schedule third-party tests in iSimCity’s advanced lab environment.

“Ixia’s state-of-the-art lab is an ideal proving ground,” said Rob Smithers, CEO of Miercom, a leading technology product testing company. “The facility is the perfect place for high-density, large-scale and real-world tests of enterprise and carrier-market equipment.”
Ixia is committed to provisioning ‘iSimcity’ with cutting-edge products coupled with world-class expertise, both of which are necessary to take the industry’s most sophisticated and leading solutions to the market on time with superb quality.
