Overview

GL offers high density variant using mTOP™ 1U/2U rack mount enclosures within which PacketExpert™ 10GX USB units are stacked to provide high density GigE ports form factor solution for testing GigE switches, routers and network conditions.

The sleek design of PacketExpert™ 10GX (PXN100) portable hardware allows multiple units to be easily placed in a mTOP™ 1U/2U rack mount enclosure (MT001, MT002, MT003, MT004) to provide high density GigE ports form factor solution (MT001 + PXN100).

Each hardware unit in the rack system is capable of both 1 Gbps and 10Gbps testing. It has two 10/1 Gbps Optical ports, and two 1 Gbps Electrical/Optical ports. The 10 Gbps Optical ports can be down-shifted to 1Gbps, thus allowing all 4 ports for 1 Gbps testing. It is a compact with reduced power requirements appliance for high performance and optionally can include 12-port user-configurable TTL trigger ports as an important enhancement.

A single PacketExpert™ mTOP™ test solution (MT001 + PXN100) with stacked rack units greatly reduces the licensing costs per device. It is a perfect ethernet test tool for customers who require multi-port testing but are constrained by lab space. For more details on mTOP™ rack-based platform, refer to Test Tools in Rack Based Platforms.
