Ixia Helps Ensure Microsoft UC, Wi-Fi Compatibility
Microsoft tapped Ixia to be its official test house to qualify Microsoft’s Lync application against Wi-Fi networking and client devices. With Ixia qualification, enterprises can determine whether they can expect Wi-Fi performance equal to wired networks. The background: Microsoft Lync is a unified-communications (UC) platform that provides a single client experience for presence, instant messaging, voice and video. During a two-week period, Ixia will work directly with potential Microsoft partners to test and qualify technology used with the UC system, using its IxVeriWave offering to create real-world conditions by emulating a range of scalable, media-rich application traffic. Once testing is complete, Ixia will deliver a qualification report to Microsoft and to the technology partner with security and reliability findings. Using this report, Microsoft can determine whether the tested technology is qualified for use with the Lync platform.
