NextGig Systems, Inc. - Network Connectivity & Test Solutions

About Xena Networks

Founded in 2007 and based in Denmark, Xena develops affordable, easy-to-use, and flexible Ethernet test solutions. We focus exclusively on Ethernet networking technology and analysis products that deliver demonstrable price/ performance leadership. This is one of the reasons we won Frost & Sullivan’s “2010 Global Gigabit Ethernet Test Equipment Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award”.

Award-winning technology

State-of-the-art technology is a key enabler for our breakthrough price/performance ratio. We offer:

• An open test platform, which enables network traffic from 3rd party test suites or software applications to be integrated.
• Our Ethernet traffic network test and analysis platforms scale easily from 10 Mbps to 100 Gbps.
• We offer remote management of test equipment across different locations and an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI).
• A text application programming interface (API) based on TCPIP enables the users to automate and script test from any location, tool environment or software.

Xena’s products recently received the stamp of approval by Iometrix — the official test laboratory of the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) and the Broadband Forum (BBF) — which now uses our hardware as the standard platform for their certification program.

How’s this for value?

To make it easy to evaluate our solutions, Xena offers a free online demo before you buy. You can set up traffic streams and filters through our demo unit, to help you make calibrated purchase decisions. We offer a free 12-month hardware warranty, no per-user licensing and free technical support for the lifetime of the product. We also offer a free 36-month software maintenance agreement covering updates on ongoing product developments, improvements and enhancements. We also offer value-added services through our channel and technology ecosystem partners. This lets you extend Xena’s core products with other solutions from companies like Net 02 and Callmation.

Need new features?

Being smaller than most of our competitors, Xena can respond much quicker to market demands. For example, we have a very flexible product development policy. Requests for product features are quickly assessed and typically we commit to providing the accepted feature within 30 days of receiving the order.

Born global

We operate in a global market and we’ve been scaling our operations to meet the needs of the gigabit Ethernet test equipment industry. During 2008 and 2009, we recruited some of the best channel partners across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. We are also developing an ecosystem of strategic partnerships with other technology specialists to help us offer an even richer selection of solutions. We have partnered with Net O2, a leading company in the sphere of compliance testing, particularly in Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) conformance testing. And we have recently brokered an OEM agreement with Callmation, a specialist in test automation.

Join the Success

Since our inception in 2007, our network of channel partners has grown rapidly. We offer a comprehensive range of sales and marketing tools to help them successfully communicate Xena’s unique benefits to network equipment manufacturers (NEMs), network service providers and enterprises in the financial, governmental, and broadcast content distribution sectors.

Ever wanted more Ethernet test equipment ports in your lab, or in your network test bed? That is the situation most network engineers are facing, even when the networking community for years been served by test equipment vendors such as Spirent, Ixia, and Agilent.

Many equipment vendors embark on their own in-house development of test systems, despite the availability of commercial test equipment, since it allows them to scale the capacity of their test infrastructure without exceeding the capital budget constraints they are facing. Xena is dedicated to the mission of delivering a new class of Ethernet test equipment, providing a better price performance point then any alternative in-house developed or existing commercial test solutions. This way, you as a customer, can keep your focus on what you do the best, and let Xena support you with a scalable, feature rich, and user friendly Ethernet test platform.

With 10 Gbps Ethernet on the rise, and 40/100 Gbps emerging, we expect a significant impact on the Gigabit Ethernet test equipment market. Many companies are facing an upgrade of their Ethernet test equipment, and Xena’s test platforms can easily result in the saving of tens and hundreds of thousands of $. Our products allows you to scale not only the capacity of your traffic generation and analysis, but also the number of sites equipped with test equipment, such as smaller R&D labs, application and sales sites, pre-staging labs, and backbone network POPs.

Our philosophy for the Xena test platform is that it must offer a GUI which is intuitive and easy to use from day-one, powerful scripting capabilities from any tool environment, standard RFC test suites, as well as functional & conformance testing of Carrier Ethernet and IP/Ethernet networks & devices at a price performance point which allows you to build out your network test infrastructure. Today, Xena is offering Ethernet test platforms with optical and electrical Ethernet interfaces from 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps, and will soon be launching 40 and 100 Gbps Ethernet test ports at a very compelling price/performance point.
