The Ixia 3500 provides an intuitive solution for validating the performance of synchronisation services and the Carrier Ethernet functions required in next-generation carrier grade IP-based networks.
This feature-rich, accurate and precise solution is equally suited to comprehensive testing of Boundary/Transparent/Slave and SyncE EEC devices essential to the successful implementation of emerging synchronisation technologies like Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) in the LAN.
Key benefits include:
Realistic and repeatable network impairment conditions in your lab
Improved productivity and time-to-test
Increased reliability of your network reducing support costs
Precisely reproduce and quickly resolve issues occurring in the field.
