Ixia Completes Acquisition of Net Optics

Ixia will offer industry-leading, comprehensive network visibility and security solutions

Ixia has announced that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of Net Optics, Inc., a leading provider of total application and network visibility solutions. With the addition of Net Optics’ product portfolio, Ixia will offer industry-leading, comprehensive network visibility and security solutions, giving enterprises and service providers a single resource to address all of their application and network visibility needs.

Greater network complexity due to the explosion of data creation, consumerization of IT and data center virtualization is driving enterprise organizations and service providers to increase visibility into their networks to ensure reliable, secure and high quality application delivery services to their customers. Although more monitoring and security tools are in use than ever before, IT organizations still face the challenge of managing access to the relevant data needed to sufficiently monitor, measure and troubleshoot customer quality of experience. Ixia network visibility solutions help solve this problem.

“The combined Ixia and Net Optics portfolios will enable our customers to achieve end-to-end visibility and security into their networks so they can focus on what truly matters – customer quality of experience,” said Errol Ginsberg, Chairman and Acting CEO at Ixia. “This acquisition reaffirms our commitment to grow our network visibility business, expand our enterprise and service provider customer base and broaden our channel and partner sales program.”

Ixia solutions provide end-to-end visibility and security, with data access to any point in the network – physical or virtual. Regardless of network scale or management needs, Ixia network visibility solutions easily integrate into data center environments and deliver the control and simplicity necessary to provide actionable insights to support business agility and scale as networks grow in size and scope. Ixia helps IT deliver on its service level agreements, meet its key performance indicators and provide best-in-class customer service.
