Ixia Validates Wide Range of 4G/LTE Innovations at Mobile World Congress

Ixia-Tested Campaign Highlights Eight Innovations From Leading Companies

CALABASAS, CA--(Marketwire - February 10, 2011) - Ixia (NASDAQ: XXIA), a leading, global provider of converged IP network test solutions, announced its collaboration with industry leaders at Mobile World Congress 2011 in showcasing new wireless products and never before seen performance benchmarks. These Ixia-tested innovations will push forward the wireless industry's delivery of better performing and higher quality 4G networks. Ixia will highlight end-to-end mobile testing solutions for femtocell, LTE access, LTE core, mobile backhaul, and wireless security at MWC in Barcelona from February 14-17, in Hall 1 Stand #1C62.

To validate their products industry leaders need massively scalable wireless test solutions capable of emulating the largest mobile broadband networks in a single test box. Ixia is the only company capable of scaling to hundreds of gigabits of video traffic, emulating hundreds of millions of mobile subscribers surfing the internet, and processing millions of web transactions per second. Live discussions and demonstrations will showcase the following mobile broadband innovations:

  • Industry-first IEEE 1588v2 benchmarking tests against Alcatel-Lucent's market-leading 7705 Service Aggregation Router (SAR) that validate boundary and transparent clock performance under traffic load and scaled mobile backhaul network conditions. Alcatel-Lucent is located in Hall 6, Stand #6C23.
  • Industry-leading LTE Evolved Packet Core (EPC) high-performance scalability with Alcatel-Lucent highlighting key benefits to mobile operators looking toward the further evolution of mobile broadband to LTE and 4G. Alcatel-Lucent is located at Hall 6, Stand #6C23.
  • Ixia, Picochip, and Continuous Computing showcase a pre-validated femtocell platform that significantly accelerates time-to-market for equipment vendors, and allows operators and vendors to solve difficult LTE cell design challenges. Picochip is located at Hall 1, #1D56. Continuous Computing is located at Hall 1, Stand #1F01.
  • Game-changing collaborations with Mindspeed Technologies, Interphase, and Continuous Computing that offer a breakthrough for eNodeB application developers seeking to quickly move product to market with industry-leading base station performance. This will be demonstrated at Mindspeed Technologies Hall 2, Stand #2H57 and Continuous Computing Hall 1, Stand #1F01.
  • EANTC test results of BroadHop's policy server, setting new performance and scalability benchmarks for 3G and 4G/LTE policy control. BroadHop is located at the Catalonia Plaza Hotel, Meeting Room 7-1 (7th Floor).
  • RadiSys will showcase the ability of its new award-winning LTE SEG 11000 security gateway to process more than 10Gbps of encapsulating security payload (ESP) traffic per LTE SEG 100 blade, allowing operators to secure the S1 backhaul links from hundreds of eNodeB sites using IPsec while providing stateful firewall and denial-of-service protection against IP attacks on EPC elements. At Hall 4.2, Hospitality suite 4.2HS11.
  • Cavium Networks will highlight the performance of its multi-core network processors for mobile data security applications at Hall 2, Stand #2C05.
  • Powerwave will use Ixia to demonstrate new products to mobile operators at Hall 8, Stand #8B109.

Ixia's wireless testing solutions accelerate the deployment and quality of mobile data services end-to-end -- from the LTE wireless access, through mobile backhaul, and the EPC. It is the only solution to support:

  • Multi-dimensional capacity planning that scales to hundreds of gigabits of stateful traffic and millions of transactions per second.
  • Real-world mobile subscriber modeling and sophisticated quality of experience (QoE) metrics, including perceptual voice and video quality scoring.
  • Scalable user equipment (UE) emulation for functional, capacity, and handover testing.
  • Comprehensive end-to-end femtocell system validation for access points and gateways.
  • IEEE 1588v2 and Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) to evaluate the functionality, conformance, and performance of timing over packet (ToP) implementations.
