IXVERIWAVE ® —CHASSIS
AND ACCESSORIES
WORLD’S MOST COMPLETE WI-FI
TEST SYSTEM
DATA SHEET
HIGHLIGHTS
Ixia offers the world’s most complete Wi-Fi test
equipment including chassis, automation appliances,
cables, and radio frequency (RF) connection equipment
that allow the setup of isolated, stable, and repeatable
test beds. Ixia Chassis are designed to house all
IxVeriWave WaveBlades® and also provide line-rate
backplane connection and ventilation and cooling for the
blades. The Chassis come in both rack-mountable and
portable-tabletop variants. Ixia’s WaveChambers provide
excellent RF characteristics with a high degree of
isolation, in a compact form factor that is easily portable
and yet extremely functional. With optional turntables, the
solution can also be extended to test and improve device
performance at different antenna orientations.
 Rack-mountable and portable chassis
variants
 Automation – 10x more efficient
 Cost of ownership minimized
 Repeatability equals confidence
 Goes beyond conformance and
interoperability
 Run long, scaled, control-plane soak
and system stress tests
 Easily integrates into any automation
framework
 Reduces test time
IXVERIWAVE CHASSIS
 Functional sanity test suites target
specific controller/AP features
For professional Wi-Fi testing, industrial-quality
equipment is required. The IxVeriWave two-slot WT20
and nine-slot WT92 chassis power WaveBlades to
produce extensive Wi-Fi benchmarking, extreme loading,
and broad traffic mixes. Real-world testing requires reliable equipment that can scale to reflect today’s WiFi network use. IxVeriWave Chassis and WaveBlade solutions provide up to 500 concurrent Wi-Fi client
simulations to test extensively Wi-Fi Networks.

o Hundreds of tests run unattended
o Uninterrupted operation for extended periods of time
o Complete control over large-scale deployment scenarios
 Cost of Ownership Minimized
o Test time reduced from days to minutes
o Test coverage increased
o Bugs revealed early in the QA cycle

AUTOMATION TEST APPLIANCE
The ATA1000 and ATA100 Automation Test Appliance offer users the ability to access and control highscale WaveTest systems via user-written scripts. An optional command line interface (CLI) mode is also
available for script development and limited manual testing. The appliances enable large-scale and longterm testing scenarios requiring clients and flows that connect and reconnect automatically and
persistently.
KEY FEATURES
 Ability to run long, scaled, control-plane soak and system stress tests
 IxVeriWave test systems integrate into users’ own test automation framework using a welldocumented and common API
 Test time reduced greatly by avoiding the need to bind test ports, create/associate clients, start
flows, then tear it all down prior to the next test case

 CLI used to create test cases before they are automated and to build test scripts around the
IxVeriWave API
 Functional sanity test suites target specific controller/access point (AP) features
 Powerful appliance offers automation of large number of IxVeriWave test ports and devices under
test (DUTs)
 Changes to IxVeriWave-created client behavior made on the fly while tests are running
 The ATA100 and ATA1000 expose the IxVeriWave-generated client behavior in a controlled and
portable fashion by allowing the user to reserve ports, set channels, scan for APs, capture packets,
create/destroy clients, set security modes and MAC/PHY options, send/receive arbitrary frames, set
up traffic flows (stateful/stateless), roam clients, create and handle groups of clients and flows, and
read back port/client/flow statistics
 The system creates persistent clients and adapts to changes advertised by the system under test
(SUT), essential for large-scale tests and long-term soak tests
 ATA100 and ATA1000 offer a highly interactive script or CLI that allows the user to connect via
Telnet or standard sockets interface
 The ATA1000 and ATA1000 support a single user
 Users can issue commands, disconnect at any time, reconnect, and resume a session later

WAVECHAMBER XT
WaveChamber XT is Ixia’s high-end, semi-anechoic chamber that comes with optional turntables to
facilitate antenna orientation testing.
WaveChamber XT is perfectly suited for testing performance of small to medium devices that often change
positions during use. It comes built-in with 2D or 3D turntables that can position the device at specific
azimuths from the measuring antenna before calibrating results. With 5 different types of filtered connectors
built-in, it can accommodate a wide-variety of devices for testing, while providing high-degree isolation from
external sources.

KEY FEATURES
 2D or 3D turntables for antenna orientation testing
 High isolation; 100-110dB overall, and >80dB at interface points
 Webcam for remotely monitoring devices inside the chamber
 Support for five different types of filtered connectors
WAVECHAMBERS
Designed to provide a simple and space-efficient solution for large-scale testing environments that involve
multiple wireless APs, Ixia’s WaveChamber provides the isolation, cooling, and filtered signal connectivity
needed to achieve accurate and repeatable results. WaveChamber provides an RF-isolated environment
small enough to support rack-mounting and desktop use, yet large enough to house most access points in
a small, medium and large footprint.
Ixia WaveChambers: Small, Medium, and Large
Bulkhead-mounted connections for RF cabling, filtered 10/100/1000/2500/5000Mbps Ethernet, USB, HDMI,
and console ports make interfacing to any AP quick and easy. WaveChamber includes a fan and front-toback airflow, providing adequate cooling, whether used on the bench-top or stacked in high-density racks.
KEY FEATURES
 Designed to provide the highest density configurations for testing a complete WLAN system from all
kinds of devices, APs, and managed WLAN switches
 Greater than 80dB of isolation at up to 6GHz provides excellent isolation for a wide range of wireless
products including antennas, RF cabling, and Ethernet cable
 PoE Ethernet supported
 Best testing provided through use of the Wi-Fi Snuggie accessory, wrapping the device inside the
chamber
 Small WaveChamber is a small chamber that minimizes space requirements, ideal for AP testing
 Medium WaveChamber is ideal for device testing and can house multiple larger multi-radio and
outdoor AP units
