Ixia's XGS12 12-slot modular chassis platform delivers comprehensive solution for performance, functional, security, and conformance testing of network equipment and network applications. This platform provides the power and performance necessary for massive-scale Layer 2-7 testing. The XGS12 chassis platform models have a front-to-back airflow system to ensure that Ixia's high-density load modules operate efficiently. A true modular construction maximizes serviceability as each major system component is self-contained and field-replaceable with the fan, power supply, and processor components designed to be readily installed and removed. Ixia load modules are hot-swappable, allowing for a highly-flexible testing environment. This chassis family supports XM and PerfectStorm load modules, providing a seamless integration with existing Ixia test systems.
