Ixia Acquires CMC for 802.11 Test Systems

Ixia has acquired privately-held Communication Machinery Corporation (CMC). a Santa Barbara, California-based developer of 802.11 capacity and performance testing equipment, for an undisclosed sum. Ixia will now offer a new family of 802.11 test tools.

The new IxWLAN offers a set of test solutions that combine CMC's 802.11 station emulation and security expertise with Ixia's traffic generation and functional test applications, such as IxChariot, IxExplorer, IxLoad, IxVoice, and IxVerify. The tools are aimed at WLAN engineering organizations and service deployment teams of Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) and Fortune 500 companies.
