“High-speed Ethernet links are widely found in local area networks, metropolitan area networks and wide area networks. Testing network performance of high-speed Ethernet links is challenging and requires specialized test tools”, said Vijay Kulkarni, CEO of GL Communications.

“PacketExpert™ 10GX offers many industry standard testing modules including bit error rate testing, RFC 2544, loopback mode functionality, ITU-T Y.1564 for verifying service level agreements and RFC 6349 for TCP throughput testing. Furthermore, PacketExpert™ 10GX can function as a wirespeed network tap and can record and playback traffic onto a network. Also, within the tap configuration, PacketExpert™ 10GX can impair selected streams of traffic as they pass through the device. These impairments can be packet loss, bandwidth throttling, added latency, duplicated, reordered or corrupted packets. PacketExpert™ 10GX offers all these capabilities as optional licenses and is the most cost-effective solution on the market”.

He further added, “the PacketExpert™ 10GX includes two 10/1 Gbps optical ports, and two 10/100/1000 Mbps electrical/optical capable ports. The 10/1 Gbps optical ports can be downshifted to support 1 Gbps electrical ports, thus offering 4 electrical / 4 optical 1 Gbps ports for Ethernet testing. The same two 10 Gbps ports can be converted to 2.5 Gbps ports with an appropriate SFP and a simple software upgrade”.
