Overview

HD-PacketExpert™ offers higher densities of 12/24 GigE ports form factor solution for testing GigE switches, routers and network conditions. This multi-device hardware unit incorporates all the features of a single quad port PacketExpert™ unit along with the necessary PC hardware with Windows® OS and remote accessibility via Ethernet Remote Desktop. Each of the 12/24 GigE port supports auto‐negotiation and flow control. The chassis comprises of both electrical and optical (fiber) interfaces. The Electrical ports can operate up to 10/100/1000 Mbps line rates in Full Duplex mode, while Optical ports can operate up to 1000 Mbps line rate in Full Duplex mode. User defined Packet Size, Packet Rate, QoS for MAC, VLAN, IP, MPLS makes it versatile tool to test any Ethernet based networking equipment.

The HD-PacketExpert™ can be easily deployed and securely fixed to an equipment rack, and provides extraordinary scalability to test Switches, Routers and Networks end-to-end. It includes additional 2 USB ports (with support for mouse/keyboard), 2 GBit Ethernet ports, in-built PC with solid-state hard drive (32Gb), standard 2G memory, Video port (VGA), and Serial port (COM). There are no moving parts with the unit, so reliability and longevity are integral.

HD-PacketExpert™ provides the important functionalities such as Wire speed BERT, RFC 2544 (Single and Dual Port) Testing, Smart Loopback, ExpertSAM, Record and Playback, PacketBroker, Multi Stream Traffic Generator and Analyzer, IPNetSim, ExpertTCP, and WAN IP link Emulation.


Applications

  • Bit error‐rate test (BERT) is for long‐term service integrity testing
  • Testing Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS), Q-in-Q (Stacked VLAN) enabled Networks
  • End to end testing of network paths, and network devices like Ethernet Switches/Router for QoS parameters
  • In-depth troubleshooting of the Carrier network in the event of network failures or impairments
  • SLA Benchmark Testing with RFC2544 Tests
  • Smart Loopback mode for single‐ended testing scenarios
