Ixia test systems deliver the industry’s most comprehensive
solutions for the performance, functional, and conformance testing of networks
and networked applications. The 2-slot XM2 portable chassis provides a
high-density, highly-flexible platform on which an Ixia test system can be
built. Operating in conjunction with the Ixia family of test applications, the
XM2 provides the foundation for a complete portable, flexible test environment.
A wide array of interface modules is available for the XM2. The chassis
supports up to 32 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 16 - 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 1 -
40 Gigabit Ethernet port , 1 - 100 Gigabit Ethernet port, 1 dual-speed 40/100
Gigabit Ethernet port, four packet over SONET (POS) ports, or 4 asynchronous
transfer mode (ATM) ports. These modules provide the network interfaces and
distributed processing resources needed for executing a broad range of data,
signaling, voice, video, and application testing for layers 2-7.
The XM2 chassis support an integrated test controller that manages
all system and testing resources. Resource ownership at a per-port level,
coupled with hot-swappable interface modules, ensures a highly flexible and
multi-user testing environment. A load module form factor adapter assures
backward compatibility with existing Ixia standard form factor interface
modules and provides seamless migration from and integration with existing Ixia
test system installations.
