Ixia Opens Permanent Israeli Office in Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv, Israel – 26 August 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) - Ixia, the leading global provider of converged IP and wireless network test solutions, today announced the opening of a permanent office in Tel Aviv, Israel that provides its customers with a direct point of contact for all product, solution, and customer service needs. This office is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ixia Technologies International Limited, which is a subsidiary of Ixia. To celebrate, Ixia will be hosting an open house on 6 September, 2012 at the new offices in Ramat Hachayal, Tel Aviv. 

Ixia sees Israel as a key market for expansion due to the region’s sophisticated technology innovations. The complex nature of our customers’ solutions – and the industry’s continued reliance on performance, conformance, and applications testing – made a local presence in the region a crucial step for Ixia’s growth. Ixia’s customers have already begun benefiting from the company’s recent placement of employees that are providing local and immediate service and support. Close proximity to the Israeli hub of innovation ensures that local customers have a direct link to Ixia’s research and development teams and enable the company to keep pace with new and innovative technologies coming from the region. This new subsidiary allows current customers to work directly with the company’s sales and service team, and increases Ixia’s presence in the region. 

The new office is headed up by a local team made up of regional sales managers, sales engineers, and professional services consultants with experience in this market and an unparalleled knowledge of how to apply Ixia solutions to any networking issue. Ixia invested heavily into outfitting the new location, including a lab to help support customers with simulating their environments for testing. Ixia’s experts will staff the lab to help with validating infrastructure, compliance, services, and other testing. The office will service customers in Israel, Eastern Europe and Africa. 

Ixia’s continued investment in this region shows our commitment to Israel with localized customer service and response to customers,” said Vic Alston, president and CEO of Ixia. “The opening of our new, permanent facilities will enable us to further support the region with facilities for sales, customer service and a test lab for our customers that require industry-leading network test solutions.” 

Ixia provides the industry’s most comprehensive converged IP network validation and network visibility solutions. Equipment manufacturers, service providers, enterprises, and government agencies use Ixia’s solutions to design, verify, and monitor a broad range of wired, Wi-Fi, and 3G/LTE equipment and networks.
