Ethernet Testing Made Easy with PacketExpert 10GX

  • GL Communications

GAITHERBURG, MD — GL Communications, a global provider telecom test and measurement solutions, addressed the press regarding their Ethernet Tester - PacketExpert 10GX, which provides testing capabilities for Ethernet networks up to 10 Gbps.

“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. 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.”
