Ixia Tests Microsoft Lync App Reliability on Wi-Fi

Ixia will serve as the official test house to qualify Microsoft's Lync application against Wi-Fi networking and client devices.  Ixia will work directly with potential Microsoft partners to test and qualify technology used with the Microsoft Lync UC system.

"With tablets and smartphones embedded in our everyday lives, Wi-Fi access to collaboration tools has become an integral part of today's enterprises; however, poor quality over Wi-Fi has slowed that adoption. Microsoft is dedicated to ensuring our customers' success, and qualifying the devices in the Lync Wi-Fi ecosystem is a major driver to enabling needed enterprise collaboration," said B.J. Haberkorn, director of Lync Product Marketing at Microsoft. "Collaborating with Ixia to provide comprehensive, real-world Wi-Fi testing ensures that the power of Lync can be securely and reliably delivered to our customers."
