Ixia established Ixia Labs to pursue innovation in IP technologies. Errol Ginsberg, Ixia's founder, chairman of the board, and chief innovation officer heads the labs.
Ixia Labs is structured so as to accelerate innovation in IP technology. The lab's personnel will draw from and rotate with Ixia's engineering staff. Ixia Labs is also chartered to participate in international standards bodies, such as the IEEE and ITU.
The Ixia Labs' first project was the development of test equipment for high-speed Ethernet (HSE). It has thus far resulted in a 100 GE Proof-of-Concept demonstration, 100 GE Development Accelerator System, and 40 GE Proof-of-Concept demonstration.
Ixia Labs looks at emerging technologies that are a year or more from initial deployment," said Errol Ginsberg. "We started work on high-speed Ethernet more than a year ago and today we are ready with products that will speed 100 GE and 40 GE development.
