5G NETWORKS MUST DELIVER HIGH PERFORMANCE AND QOS

5G is happening now, worldwide. Which use case will provide the most ARPU—eMBB, URLCC, or mMTC? Who will drive network slicing? How will 5G interact with and overlay 4G/LTE networks? Service providers and equipment manufacturers are challenged to answer these questions to best compete.

Cutting through the challenges of combining old and new technologies, Ixia’s 5G Core test solution validates all the new 5G technologies and services at industry-leading scale and performance. By combining Ixia’s XAir2 4G/LTE test platform with its new XAir3 5G test platform, users can validate their sub-6Ghz and mmWave radio solutions. Ixia produces the world’s only solution that can test both RAN and Core in a single product. Read more.

5G NETWORKS MUST DELIVER HIGH PERFORMANCE AND QOS
ASSESS 5G CONVERGENCE AT SCALE

ASSESS 5G CONVERGENCE AT SCALE

Powered by IxLoad-Wireless, Ixia’s wireless test solution is the only converged, high-scale LTE test solution in the market. It allows service providers and NEMs to test the cellular networks of today and the future, from end-to-end or in isolation, to measure subscriber quality of experience.

Ixia is enabling a smooth transition to 5G with best-in-class wireless test solutions that validate the quality of experience of wireless services at massive scale. For this, we have recently launched XAir2, a new hardware platform for massive scale cellular subscriber emulation and radio access network testing.

Combined with our PerfectStorm high-scale, modular application and security test platform and a new, more scalable XAir2 radio head, we offer the world’s most scalable Uu interface test solution.

XAIR2 - THE STEPPING STONE TO 5G TESTING

Ixia’s IxLoad-Wireless XAir2 provides user equipment (UE) emulation that enables a powerful IxLoad eNodeB Layer 1 to 7 test solution. With complex UE modeling and emulation, it offers realistic and easily-configured traffic models and call patterns.

 

  • Support for advanced carrier aggregation, with up to four carriers
  • Multiple 10GE traffic generation ports to help model per-subscriber throughput growth
  • Support for unlicensed spectrum usage with technologies like LTE-U and LAA
  • 400 - 5900MHz frequency range
  • Powerful and extensible with technologies like Cellular IoT (NB-IoT, Cat1M)
