Speaking to the press, Mr. Vijay Kulkarni CEO of GL Communications said, “PacketBroker is an optional application with GL’s PacketExpert™ Ethernet Test Tool, which is used as a highly precise non-intrusive Wirespeed Ethernet Tap and all the necessary features packaged within to capture real world traffic, define multiple filters for drilling-down to traffic of interest, generate triggers based on packet filters, and transmit filtered/aggregated packets for deep-packet data analysis.”

“GL’s PacketExpert™ 10GX is a USB based portable Quad Port wirespeed Ethernet/IP Tester, of which 2 are 10/1 Gbps optical ports, and other 2 are 10/100/1000 Mbps Electrical/Optical ports. The 10/1 Gbps Optical ports can be down shifted to support 1Gbps Electrical ports, thus offering 4 Electrical / 4 Optical 1 Gbps ports for ethernet testing per unit.”

Vijay further added, “In addition to PacketExpert™ 10GX portable platform, GL also offers rack-based 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. It is a perfect ethernet test tool for customers who require multi-port testing but are constrained by lab space.”
