Ixia acquires application and network visibility solutions provider Net Optics

Ixia has completed the acquisition of Net Optics, a provider of total application and network visibility solutions.

The acquisition will help Ixia offer 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.

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. They 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.
