Ixia Certifies Wide Range of 4G/LTE Innovations at Mobile World Congress
Ixia, a global provider of converged IP network test solutions, announced its collaboration with major players at Mobile World Congress 2011 in showcasing new wireless products and never before seen performance benchmarks.
These Ixia-tested innovations will push the wireless industry's delivery for better performing and higher quality 4G networks.
According to Ixia (News - Alert), the company 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.
Company officials said that live discussions and demonstrations will showcase mobile broadband innovations including industry-first IEEE 1588v2 benchmarking tests against Alcatel-Lucent's (News - Alert) market-leading 7705 Service Aggregation Router (SAR) that validate boundary and transparent clock performance under traffic load and scaled mobile backhaul network conditions.
LTE (News - Alert) 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. Ixia, Picochip, and Continuous Computing (News - Alert) 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 among other such things.
Company officials claimed that 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.
According to company officials, 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 and scalable user equipment (UE) emulation for functional, capacity, and handover testing among other such things.
