Ixia First to Successfully Demonstrate 400 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) Technology with Eight Electric Lanes of Four-Level Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM4)

CALABASAS, Calif.–()–Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA), a number one supplier of community testing, visibility, and safety options, in the present day introduced it has efficiently demonstrated 400 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) expertise by combining eight electrical lanes of 56 Gigabits per second (Gbps), outlined as 400GAUI-Eight by IEEE802.3bs, through four-level Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM4).

Ixia helps clients meet the rising demand for community bandwidth
The dwell demonstration, the primary of its type, was delivered by Ixia to key members of the 400 GbE ecosystem together with a spread of end-users, in addition to industry-leading community tools, chip, and optics producers. Attendees had been supplied with a first-hand view into Ixia’s capability to combine new and present options, together with PAM-Four (probably the most scalable multi-level signaling protocol for next-generation line fee), with the corporate’s superior 400 GbE expertise to deal with the rising bandwidth necessities of increasing hyperscale information facilities. In truth, in accordance to a latest Cisco report entitled The Zettabyte Era — Trends and Analysis, world IP site visitors is anticipated to improve practically threefold over the subsequent 5 years.

Ixia collaborates with key MSA teams to drive the long run of 400 GbE expertise
Ixia presently helps and collaborates with two key multisource settlement (MSA) improvement teams to assist drive the effectiveness and effectivity of 400 GbE expertise: double-density quad small-form-factor pluggable (QSFP-DD) MSA, and Octal Small Form Factor Pluggable (OSFP) MSA.

The QSFP-DD MSA Group is addressing the technical challenges of attaining a double-density interface and making certain mechanical, electrical, thermal, and signal-integrity interoperability for module parts produced by completely different producers. Collaboration by way of the MSA is meant to allow quicker implementation and simpler operation of the high-speed, double-density quad small-form-factor pluggable interface in networking tools. QSFP-DD addresses rising world bandwidth consumption with its capability to quadruple mixture change bandwidth whereas sustaining port density.

The OSFP MSA is comprised of 49 leaders who’re tasked with defining the shape issue for brand new 400 GbE transceiver module that may help the complete vary of 400 GbE optics applied sciences, from datacenter to metro attain.

Ixia’s Ethernet expertise management
Ixia was additionally the primary vendor to efficiently and publically exhibit forefront, IEEE802.3bs draft compliant 400 GbE expertise with 400GAUI-16 electrical interface. Demonstrations passed off at a number of occasions in 2016. These demonstrations, held in Japan and Germany, assist verify that 400 GbE expertise, together with key parts, is obtainable and prepared to construct the subsequent era of excessive velocity networking merchandise.

Safe Harbor beneath the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995
Certain statements made on this press launch could also be deemed to be forward-looking statements together with, with out limitation, statements relating to rising bandwidth necessities; the anticipated improve in world IP site visitors; the advantages of collaboration by way of the QSFP-DD MSA Group; and the applied sciences to be supported by the 400 GbE transceiver module. In some circumstances, such forward-looking statements will be recognized by phrases similar to “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “project,” “predict,” “potential,” or the like. These statements mirror our present views with respect to future occasions and are primarily based on assumptions and are topic to dangers and uncertainties. These dangers and uncertainties, in addition to different elements, might trigger future outcomes, efficiency, or achievements to be materially completely different from these expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Factors that might trigger precise outcomes to differ materially from these expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements embrace, amongst others, the precise development fee for world IP site visitors; the power of the QSFP-DD MSA Group to efficiently collaborate and to notice the anticipated advantages from that collaboration; the power of the Octal Small Form Factor Pluggable (OSFP) MSA to efficiently outline [the specifications for the] new 400 GbE transceiver module and the module’s success in supporting the complete vary of 400 GbE optics applied sciences; adjustments within the world financial system and market situations; and struggle, terrorism, political unrest, pure disasters, and cybersecurity assaults. The elements which will trigger Ixia’s future outcomes to differ materially from our present expectations additionally embrace, with out limitation, the dangers recognized in Ixia’s Annual Report on Form 10-Ok for the 12 months ended December 31, 2015 and in Ixia’s different filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We undertake no obligation to replace any forward-looking statements, whether or not consequently of new info, future occasions, or in any other case.
