Ixia Targets LTE Testing

Calabasas-based network testing equipment developer Ixia said today that it is targeting the LTE testing market, with its Ixia IxLoad product. According to Ixia, it is looking to help mobile carriers maintain and safeguard their network infrastructure, by allowing those providers to prototype those real-world networks in the lab. Ixia develops a wide range of network testing software and hardware products. The firm has been offering up LTE testing tools for awhile, since it acquired LTE testing equipment firm Catapult Communications in 2009.
