400G Native QSFP-DD PAM4 Test Module

RXT-6400 New

(No adapters required)

First native 400GE QSFP-DD PAM4 Test Equipment, in true portable form factor, enables Lab-to-Field Transition

The RXT-6400 is the first truly portable 400G test set offering native QSFP-DD PAM4. Equipped to support all common transceiver form-factors, this module is a perfect complement to the RXT Platform, extending its testing range to 400 Gbps and offering a future upgrade path for all-in-one 10M-to-400GE testing. Evaluation, Interop, Installation, verification, commissioning, monitoring, troubleshooting, and maintenance tasks are simplified thanks to a combination of intuitive user interface and powerful test functions. Novice users benefit from the easy-to-use GUI, while experienced users will appreciate an array of advanced layer 1-4 features, such as FEC codeword Error distribution analysis, PAM4 pre-emphasis, skew, I2C/MDIO Read/Write, transceiver check and stress, Lane BERT, Throughput test, IPv4/IPv6 and much more.
