San Jose, CA, January 29, 2002 ?Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA), a leading provider of high-speed, multiport network performance analysis systems, and Tyco Electronics Corporation, the world?s largest passive electronic components manufacturer, joined today to provide the world?s first platform for both XAUI interoperability and performance testing. Utilizing Tyco Electronics? XAUI HM-Zd interoperability backplane, Ixia provides a highly flexible traffic generation and analysis solution, which includes support for IEEE 802.3ae Continuous Jitter Pattern (CJPAT) and Continuous Random Pattern (CRPAT). For the first time, developers of XAUI devices are able to conduct interoperability testing as well as performance testing all within a single platform.
?As a principal charter member of the 10 Gigabit Ethernet Alliance (10GEA), Ixia is delighted to be working with Tyco Electronics to accelerate the deployment and acceptance of XAUI technology. We offer the world?s first and only XAUI performance analysis solution,? said Eran Karoly, vice president of marketing for Ixia, ?Our XAUI tester demonstrates Ixia?s commitment to the rapid deployment of 10 Gigabit Ethernet technology throughout the LAN, MAN and WAN.?
Tyco Electronics, chair of the 10 Gigabit Ethernet Alliance (10GEA) XAUI interoperability group, developed the XAUI HM-Zd backplane as a common platform for XAUI interoperability testing. ?We are pleased to be working with Ixia to provide a complete platform for both XAUI interoperability and performance testing?, said John D?Ambrosia, Manager, Semiconductor Relations for Tyco Electronics. ?Ixia?s XAUI tester is a unique product in the marketplace and we appreciate their dedication to the development of verification tools that validate emerging technologies and expedite their widespread adoption.?
Ixia’s XAUI testers are compliant to the latest draft of the IEEE 802.3ae standards and provide additional support for Bit Error Rate Testing (BERT). The Ixia XAUI BERT tester is programmable to be concatenated for single pattern and statistics over all four channels or channelized for independent patterns and statistics on each of the four channels. Ixia?s XAUI performance analysis solutions are designed to assist developers of Quad SerDes, LAN and WAN PHYs with a XAUI interface, XENPAK transceiver modules and switch and router line cards being developed for XENPAK.
