800Gbps Ethernet is here

112Gbps SerDes will double the top Ethernet speed.

We’re ready. Are you?

It took the industry around six years to go from 100Gbps to 400Gbps Ethernet. Now, just two years later, the first 800Gbps Ethernet products are being developed and plans for implementing 1.6Tbps Ethernet are being discussed.

Xena is committed to maintaining its leadership position as a reliable first mover in high-speed Ethernet traffic generation and analysis (TGA) solutions. Just as we were with our Thor 400Gbps test modules, Xena is one of the very first to market with functional 800Gbps framed Ethernet test solutions.

Named Freya (after the Nordic goddess of fertility), this family of test modules uses the new 112Gbps SerDes. They are compatible with our ValkyrieBay 2400 chassis, and will be a stepping stone towards future 1.6 Terabit Ethernet testing.
