(07. 9. 2023) PacketExpert™ 100G - Comprehensive Ethernet/IP Testing Solution from GL Communications Inc.

Our partner GL Communications is pleased to announce the release of 100 Gbps PacketExpert Ethernet testing platform.

The PacketExpert™ 100G (PXX100) is a cutting-edge hardware platform designed for extensive testing of wire-speed Ethernet and IP networks, supporting speeds of up to 100 Gbps. The PacketExpert™ 100G is a high performance appliance with specialized network interface cards, GL’s proprietary PacketExpert™ software, large RAM and storage, with optimized processing, and cooling capability. Available in rack-mount and portable platforms.

This versatile device comes with a web-based user interface. All functionalities can be easily accessed through any standard web browser, allowing convenient control from multiple locations and various access devices such as PCs, laptops, and tablets.

The PacketExpert™ 100G hardware platform features a dual-port configuration with two high-speed 100 Gbps QSFP ports (Port 1 and Port 2). These versatile QSFP ports can be easily adapted to support 1Gbps, 10Gbps, 25Gbps, 40Gbps and 50Gbps optical connections by utilizing QSFP adapters with respective SFP modules. This flexibility empowers the platform to offer two optical ports for comprehensive Ethernet testing. Additionally, if higher test port density is desired, multiple NIC cards can be seamlessly connected to the appliance.

PacketExpert™ 100G can perform Bit Error Rate Testing (BERT)Loopback Testing and RFC 2544 Testing (throughput, packet loss, latency measurements) methodologies. Each 100G port provides independent Ethernet/VLAN/MPLS/IP/UDP layer-wise testing at wirespeed. BERT, RFC 2544, and Loopback applications are implemented on all transport Layers including Layer 2 (Ethernet), Layer 2.5 (VLAN / MPLS), Layer 3 (IPv4 / IPv6), and Layer 4 (UDP).
