IneoQuest Accuses Ixia of Stealing Secrets

If services delivered by Internet Protocol are the future (and increasingly, the present) then it follows that revenue assurance testing will increasingly revolve around testing IP services too. The market for IP service testing is growing and growing. It is against this background that IPTV quality and service assurance vendor IneoQuest has filed a complaint against rival IP specialists Ixia. The allegation is that Ixia knowingly misappropriated from IneoQuest the technological basis for Ixia’s current video test and measurement solutions. They reportedly did this by abusing a 2004 NDA between the two firms. You can read the press release here.
