The XenaCompact lets us accurately simulate the volume of traffic predicted in the future, enabling effective development and testing of future applications that will leverage the potential of the National Broadband Network.

Xena Networks, an innovative developer of gigabit Ethernet test hardware based in Denmark, and TelecomTest Solutions (TTS) are helping the University of Melbourne’s Institute for a Broadband-Enabled Society (IBES) to accurately model Australia’s future broadband network.

Melbourne-based IBES Industry Partner, TelecomTest Solutions has provided IBES with a XenaCompact platform enabling researchers to generate huge volumes of data traffic to emulate those found on comparable telecommunications networks.

IBES Director, Laureate Professor Rod Tucker said, “The XenaCompact lets us accurately simulate the volume of traffic predicted in the future, enabling effective development and testing of future applications that will leverage the potential of the National Broadband Network.”

"IBES is driving research that will harness the future potential of Australia’s broadband infrastructure," said Jacob Nielsen, Xena Networks’ CEO. "It’s exciting to see our equipment being used in such a forward-thinking program."

“Ultimately, it’s about ensuring Australia remains competitive by developing robust broadband applications that are optimized for the network,” says John Rabba, TTS’ Senior Account Manager.
