Ixia Rolls Out Wireless Network Testing For LTE

Calabasas-based network testing equipment firm Ixia said today that the firm has begun to offer a combined, large scale wireless network testing solution for long term evolution (LTE) networks, out of the firm's June acquisition of Catapult Communications. The firm said its products now offer wireless testing for large scale LTE (long term evolution), UMTS, IMS, and CPRS/EDGE networks. Ixia claims it is first to market with a solution which can provide network, device, and traffic emulation for LTE. Ixia's acquisition of Catapult Communications was worth approximately $105M.
