Reporting Segments

  • Communications Solutions Group (CSG)

CSG revenue growth was driven by R&D solutions for new technologies including 5G, 4.9G and Wi-Fi test that was partially offset by a decline in revenue from aerospace, defense and government, despite strong order growth in this end-market.
    • For fiscal 2017, CSG generated $1.7 billion in revenue, compared with revenue of $1.8 billion in fiscal 2016.
  • Electronic Industrial Solutions Group (EISG)

  • Ixia Solutions Group (ISG)
    • ISG revenue was $124 million in the fourth quarter. ISG saw solid demand for its high-speed Ethernet test solutions, including 400G, and strong orders for its security and applications solutions. Additionally, visibility sales to its service provider customers were strong, offset by softness in enterprise accounts.
    • For fiscal 2017, ISG revenue totaled $256 million.
  • Services Solutions Group (SSG)
    • SSG revenue in the fourth quarter grew 2 percent year-over-year to reach $110 million when compared to $108 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. Growth in calibration and remarketed solution sales were partially offset by a decline in repair revenue.
