Go Big with 5G at Mobile World Congress 2018

Barcelona - home of the Mobile World Congress


Ixia is proud to be exhibiting at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona. We will be at Stand 6G30 in Hall 6 with the Ixia solutions on display in the Keysight stand.

This year our big focus (and one of the big focuses of the rest of the show as well) will be 5G. While it is tempting to think of 5G as being just like 4G/LTE but more and faster, it is more than that. 5G will include fast download speeds, up to 20Gbps, less than 1 ms latency, scale for IoT and more.

If this many things will be changing on your network, it is clear that you are going to have to be pretty careful about things like the end user experience and this implies pretty comprehensive testing and testing at scale.

That's where Ixia solutions come in. With IxLoad, IxLoad Virtual Edition, XAir2 and PerfectStorm all on display, you will be able to see how we can help with testing 5G and scaling user experience emulation – know what the UX will be before your customers call your support centers and tell you. Perform realistic tests at terabit scale so you can better ensure that your next generation deployments go the way you expect them to.

We hope to see you in Barcelona.

Here's our MWC page – there's some good 5G reading for the plane at the bottom.
