VePAL MX120/MX300 and TX300 4 Gbps Fibre Channel Test Suite. VePAL MX120/MX300 and TX300

VeEX introduces an optional 4 Gbps Fibre Channel test suite to the MX120/300 and TX300 platforms providing comprehensive test performance capabilities for high bandwidth SAN deployments. The optional Fibre Channel test suite offers full line rate traffic generation and analysis, bit error rate testing (BERT), round trip delay measurements, buffer-to-buffer credit configuration, and flow control (RRDY) statistics. The 4 Gbps rate support complements the existing 1 Gbps and 2 Gbps functionality already offered in the handheld MX120 Metro Ethernet Expert test set. The full test suite (1 Gbps, 2 Gbps, and 4 Gbps) is available for the newly released MX300 and TX300 products.

The MX300 equipped with the Fibre Channel test suite is the industry's smallest and most portable Ethernet and Fibre Channel test set supporting 10GE LAN/WAN, 10/100/1000Base-T, 1000Base-X, and 1/2/4Gbps Fibre Channel test functionality. The hardware and software scalable TX300 takes this functional integration to a new level by adding STM-64/OC-192, E1/DS1 to STM-16/OC-48, and OTN OTU-2 test capability to the Ethernet and Fibre Channel test suites. The MX300 and TX300 platforms allow network operators to equip themselves with the right combination of multi-service test functions in a single test unit, simplifying network deployments, service delivery, and network maintenance.
