Ixia Anue 3500: Overview

3500 Product Overview

The Ixia Anue 3500 is an intuitive test case driven solution that you can use to validate the performance of synchronization services and Carrier Ethernet functions required by next generation carrier grade Ethernet/IP based networks.

With the Ixia Anue 3500, test and development engineers at any level can quickly and easily verify compliance to international standards based requirements with real-time graphed analysis and automatic pass/fail results. The Ixia Anue 3500 provides real-world testing of technologies including Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE), IEEE 1588, PTP, Circuit Emulation Services (CES, IETF SAToP, IETF CESoPSN, ITU-T Y.1413), MPLS-TP and Carrier Ethernet OAM.
