CALABASAS, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA) 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.
