The Ixia Difference
Ixia solutions optimize networks and data centers to
accelerate, secure, and scale the deliver of applications
and services for enterprises, equipment manufacturers,
service providers, and governments.
Ixia solutions test the network infrastructure,
performance, and security to facilitate new service and
application roll-out, new equipment integration, and
increased user requests.
Ixia solutions assess the network's ability to process
service and application requests, handle a rapidly scaling
user base, and whether security is affecting performance
Ixia solutions monitor network resource usage, providing
visibility into how traffic is traversing your network, what
types of traffic your network experiences, and if your
network is secure.
