Ixia Ramps Voice Testing Capabilities

Calabasas-based Ixia, a manufacturer of network testng hardware, said last week that its IxLoad Voice testing product has been improved, and can now support over 1 million SIP- or RTP- endpoints per chassis. Ixia's IxLoad products are used by companies to test voice-over-IP (VOIP) equipment. The firm claims the improved capacity is five times the capacity of products from competitors. SIP and RTP are two of the networking protocols used for voice-over-IP networks.
