CALABASAS, CA: Ixia , a network testing, visibility, and security solutions provider, has further propelled  its suite of production-ready solutions that helps  customers to extensively implement 100GbE, 50GbE, and 25GbE, by introducing the new NovusTM QSFP28 High-Density 100GbE Load Module (Novus).

Depreciation of capital expenditure and augmentation of test flexibility is achieved by the new solution offered by Ixia. This is procured by offering multi-rate Ethernet test ports who straight away nullify the requirement of multiple load modules. “Ixia continues to lead the market in delivering production-ready validation solutions on a proven, field tested platform and our list of firsts continues to grow,” said Dennis Cox, Chief Product Officer at Ixia.

As the demand for bandwidths are increasing, companies and high scale data centers require a high density networking set-up. Also, ultra-high density switches that support multi-rate Ethernet speeds working on a single port are being built by network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) to enable flexible switch deployment as per the requirement of customer’s data center. “Over the past 15 years, we’ve been first to ship test systems supporting 10GbE, 100GbE, 40GbE, 25GbE, and 50 GbE.  We have a track record of developing and bringing new test solutions to market with emerging technologies to serve early adopters,” added Cox.

Lately Ixia has been the main business pioneer shipping production-ready solutions arrangements that meet the greater part of the bandwidth needs of these organizations, giving interoperability and in addition useful and high-port check execution benchmark testing over different Ethernet speeds.

Previously, Ixia has been providing QSFP28 solutions and shipping from 2014. In addition, Ixia was the first native market with native QSFP28 100GbE and 25GbE solutions, and it was the first to market with a production released 50GbE speed option on the company’s Xcellon®-Multis QSFP28 platform.
