M12QSFP10 Advanced 1U Gigabit Ethernet test module with 12 10G ports

M12QSFP10

The M12QSFP10 is an advanced 1U Gigabit Ethernet test module with 12 10G ports.

1U Gigabit Ethernet test module

The M12QSFP10 is a wire-speed 12-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet test module that offers industry-leading port density for testing 10G Ethernet at Layers 2-3.

Based on Xena’s advanced architecture, the M12QSFP10 is available for both the robust transportable 1U XenaCompact chassis, and the 4U 12-slot XenaBay chassis where it can be built out to provide 144 10G test ports.

The M12QSFP10 comes complete with a comprehensive suite of management and test application software.

Histogram
statistics(2)
Two real-time histograms per port. Each histogram can measure one of RX/TX packet length, IFG, jitter, or latency distribution for all traffic, a specific stream, or a filter.
Loopback modes- L1RX2TX – RX-to-TX, transmit byte-by-byte copy of the incoming packet
- L2RX2TX – RX-to-TX, swap source and destination MAC addresses
- L3RX2TX – RX-to-TX, swap source and destination MAC addresses and IP addresses
- TXON2RX – TX-to-RX, packet is also transmitted from the port
- TXOFF2RX – TX-to-RX, port’s transmitter is idle
- Port-to-port – Inline loop mode where all traffic is looped 100% transparent at L1
Tx disableEnable/disable of optical laser or copper link
IGMPv2 multicast join/leave)IGMPv2 continuous multicast join, with configurable repeat interval
Oscillator characteristics• Initial Accuracy is 3 ppm

TRANSMIT ENGINE
Number of transmit streams per port256 (wire-speed) Each stream can generate millions of traffic flows through the use of field modifiers.
Test payload insertion per streamWire-speed packet generation with timestamps, sequence numbers, and data integrity signature optionally inserted into each packet.
Stream statistics(2)TX Mbit/s, packets/s, packets, bytes, FCS error, Pause
Bandwidth profilesBurst size and density can be specified. Uniform and bursty bandwidth profile streams can be interleaved
Field modifiers16-bit header field modifiers with inc, dec, or random mode. Each modifier has configurable bit-mask, repetition, min, max, and step parameters. 5 modifiers per stream.
Packet length controlsFixed, random, butterfly, and incrementing packet length distributions. Packet length from 56 to 16384 bytes
Packet payloadsRepeated user specified 1 to 18B pattern, an 8-bit incrementing pattern
Error generationUndersize length (56B min) and oversize length (16384 max.) packet lengths, injection of sequence, misorder, payload integrity, and FCS errors
TX packet header support and RX autodecodesEthernet, Ethernet II, VLAN, ARP, IPv4, IPv6, UDP, TCP, LLC, SNAP, GTP, ICMP, RTP, RTCP, STP, MPLS, PBB, or fully specified by user
Packet scheduling modes- Normal (stream interleaved mode). Standard scheduling mode, precise rates, minor variation in packet inter-frame gap.
- Strict Uniform. New scheduling mode, with 100% uniform packet inter-frame gap, minor deviation from configured rates
- Sequential packet scheduling (sequential stream scheduling). Streams are scheduled continuously in sequential order, with configurable number of packets per stream
RECEIVE ENGINE
Number of traceable Rx streams per port2048(wire-speed)
Automatic detection of test payload for received packetsReal-time reporting of statistics and latency, loss, payload integrity, sequence error, and misorder error checking
Jitter measurementJitter (Packet Delay Variation) measurements compliant to MEF10 standard with 8 ns accuracy. Jitter can be measured on up to 32 streams.
Stream statistics(2)- RX Mbit/s, packets/s, packets, bytes.
- Loss, payload integrity errors, sequence errors, misorder errors
- Min latency, max latency, average latency
- Min jitter, max jitter, average jitter
Latency measurements accuracy±8 ns (opto/elec).
Latency measurement resolution 8 ns (Latency measurements can calibrate and remove latency from transceiver modules)
Number of filters:- 6 x 64-bit user-definable match-term patterns with mask, and offset
- 6 x frame length comparator terms (longer, shorter)
- 6 x user-defined filters expressed from AND/OR’ing of the match and length terms.
Filter statistics(2)Per filter: RX Mbit/s, packets/s, packets, bytes.
