IxVeriWave

Test and validate Wi-Fi performance of WLAN networks by recreating real-world scenarios.

Problem: Testing too little, too late

In today's wireless world, a robust Wi-Fi network is key to fast and reliable access to enterprise applications. For many, testing Wi-Fi performance in a real-world environment can help identify critical IT issues, but troubleshooting in the deployment stage isn’t easy. The exponential growth and the diversity of IoT devices and applications can make it difficult to isolate problems, and detecting glitches already in a live, deployed network is a costly and complicated endeavor.

WiFi Test

Solution: Wi-Fi for the real world

Ixia IxVeriWave™ delivers Wi-Fi performance testing by simulating complex networking environments for testing WLAN networks. By recreating real scenarios—such as interference and background traffic—in a controlled lab environment, IxVeriWave allows IT to identify and resolve problems early in the network lifecycle. Early custom testing of Wi-Fi networks provides actionable insight into real-world performance, while testing can occur in a deterministic and repeatable fashion. Detecting a bug in the development phase costs considerably less than managing glitches in a production environment. Business benefits of using IxVeriWave include faster time to market for products, superior network performance, and proactive problem resolution.
