Ixia provides physical and virtual network application performance and security resilience solutions. Products and Services The company’s product solutions consist of its hardware platforms, such as its chassis, interface cards and appliances, software application tools, and services, including its warranty and maintenance offerings and professional services. Products Sales of the company’s network test hardware products typically include a chassis and one or more Ethernet interface cards. The company’s software applications and application programing interfaces allow its customers to create and manage integrated automated test environments. The company’s hardware platform consists primarily of interchangeable interface cards, which fit into multi-slot chassis. The company’s chassis are metal cases that incorporate a computer, a power supply, and a backplane, which connects the interface cards to the chassis. The interface cards generate, receive and analyze a wide variety of traffic types at multiple network layers. The company’s primary 12-slot network test chassis (XGS12 and XG12) provides a high-density, highly-flexible test platform. Operating in conjunction with the company’s software applications, its chassis provide the foundation for a test environment. A range of interface cards is available for the company’s primary chassis. The 12-slot Ixia chassis supports approximately 192 Gigabit ports, 384-10GE ports, 48-40GE ports and 24-100GE ports. These interface cards provide the network interfaces and distributed processing resources needed for executing a range of data, signaling, voice, video, and application testing for layers 1-7 of the network stack. Each chassis supports an integrated test controller that manages all system and testing resources. The company offers various interface cards that operate at speeds of approximately 400 gigabit per second. Each one of the company’s interface cards contains multiple independent traffic generation and analysis ports that operate at line rate. Each port on most interface cards has a transmit stream engine that is used to generate packets of information and a real-time receive analysis engine capable of analyzing the packets as they are received. In addition, the company’s systems measure the effectiveness of networks in prioritizing different types of traffic. Most of its generation interface cards also include a microprocessor per port to generate and analyze routing protocols, such as BGP and MPLS, as well as application traffic, such as TCP/IP, HTTP and SSL. Certain of the company’s application and security load modules could recreate approximately 35,000 attacks, including exploits, malware, denial of service (DoS), and mobile malware. These load modules provide application and threat assessment solutions at Internet-scale, and create massive-scale, high fidelity simulation and testing conditions for battle-testing infrastructures, devices, applications, and people. The company offers a suite of software applications in conjunction with its network test hardware platforms to address specific technologies. These applications measure and analyze the performance, functionality, interoperability, service quality, and conformance of networks, network equipment and applications that run on these networks. The company’s technology-specific application test suites are targeted at a range of application and security performance and conformance requirements across various protocols, interfaces and types of devices. These include automated and targeted delivery, functionality and performance test for technologies and devices, including storage, video, voice, intelligent networks, specific applications, routing, switching, Wi-Fi, broadband, wireless, software defined networks and virtual networks and functions. All of these technologies are used in various situations, including (but not limited to) R&D test environment, change management and scenario planning for production networks. The company also develops virtual versions of its core network test products designed to test virtual assets and environments using technologies that have been used f
