Web Host NewsSANTA CLARA, CA – Ixia (NASDAQ: XXIA), a leading, global provider of converged IP network test solutions, announced that over 25 enterprises, network equipment manufacturers, and service providers are attending the world’s first Low-Latency Measurement Summit which is taking place today at its iSimCity facility in Santa Clara. The charter of the Low-Latency Summit is to help NEMs, data center planners, and enterprises that require low-latency communications create and deploy next generation converged data centers. Speakers will discuss how latency affects the key issues and trends in data center technology, including cloud networking, bandwidth needs, design and scale, traffic patterning, and testing methodologies. Ixia will post videos of the summit to the iSimCity solution page next week.

“Low-latency devices are critical to the delivery of time-sensitive data flows, as in financial transactions,” said Douglas Gourlay, Vice President of Marketing for Arista Networks. “Low-latency testing, as performed at iSimCity, is crucial for data center equipment and network deployment.”

As data centers are used to deliver more real-time traffic, including voice, video, and time-critical data over a converged network infrastructure, testing to determine actual latency values becomes imperative. Ixia’s award-winning precision hardware and software test platform provides high-scaling, large traffic emulations that not only simulate city-sized traffic levels, but model real-world traffic patterns. Ixia provides the greatest testing methodology and hardware precision, with latency resolution down to 2.5 nanoseconds and support for 1, 10, 40, and 100 Gbps data rates.

“Next-generation converged data centers need highly granular and accurate measurements of end-to-end latency for superior design and high-confidence deployment,” said Atul Bhatnagar, president and CEO of Ixia. “Ixia’s breakthrough innovations in precision measurement technology, with full support for lossless Ethernet, priority flow control, and the ability to report network convergence times via new hardware features, enables us to demonstrate our data center testing solutions at this event.”

Ixia opened iSimCity, its executive briefing center and proof-of-concept lab in Santa Clara, California in 2008. iSimCity was designed from the ground up to serve multiple functions for customers and visitors. iSimCity serves as an executive briefing center, large-scale proof-of-concept lab, professional services venue, and a lab test environment.
