Ixia Targets Energy Efficiency Testing

Calabasas-based network testing equipment firm Ixia said today that the firm's equipment has been used by an independent test lab to test energy efficiency of products. According to Ixia, its IxGreen Proof-of-Concept testing solution, which is intended to test power consumption of data center elements, has been used by Broadband Testing Labs for determining energy efficiency of network switches from D-Link. Ixia said its solution is targeted at helping data center managers achieve their "eco-efficient" data center goals. Ixia rolled out a demonstration of its IxGreen product in April at Interop, but has not yet fully released the product into production.
