COPENHAGEN, October 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
New 100 Gigabit Ethernet test module from Xena supports provides exceptional flexibility and value.
Xena Networks, the award-winning Gigabit Ethernet Test & Measurement manufacturer announces the availability for beta testing of a unique "triple-media" and "tri-speed" 100/40/10G test module for the XenaCompact and XenaBay chassis.
This unique M1CFP4QSFP28CXP test module supports three transceiver form-factors: CFP4 (CAUI-4), QSFP28 (CAUI-4), and CXP (CAUI) and users can choose any one of these form factors to be active at any time. When the CXP form-factor is selected, the user can, in addition to a single 100G test port, also use the test module to provide two 40G test ports or eight 10G test ports.
Triple media support delivers cost-cutting flexibility
"We've chosen to develop this unique product to meet the needs of Network Equipment Manufacturers (NEMs) tasked with testing their equipment in a variety of network environments where they can reasonably expect to encounter all three of these 100G form-factors.
"By supplying them with one test module that supports them all, we dramatically reduce the cost of testing as now they needn't invest in 2 or 3 different 100G test modules," explains CEO Jacob Nielsen.
Xena has a large established customer base worldwide and almost half of these are NEMs, according to Jacob Nielsen.
Xena's "tri-speed" feature equals huge value for customers
"The other aspect is that via the CXP interface, we also effectively give customers two 40G test ports or eight 10G test ports for free," says Jacob Nielsen. "This flexibility and price/performance makes the new test module ideal for BERT, load-stress, and functional testing of Ethernet equipment and network infrastructure."
