M2SFP+ Wire-speed 2-port 10G L2-3 test module


The Odin-10G-1S-2P is a wire-speed 2-port 10G L2-3 test module

Odin-10G-1S-2P Wire-speed 2-port 10G L2-3 test module

Based on Xena’s advanced architecture, the Odin-10G-1S-2P is a proven solution for testing 10G Ethernet at Layers 2-3.

It is available for both the 4U 12-slot XenaBay chassis and the robust transportable 1U XenaCompact chassis.

The Odin-10G-1S-2P comes complete with Xena’s free XenaManager software – an easy-to-use GUI for handling both routine and advanced test schedules that includes XenaScripting, Xena2544, Xena1564, Xena3918 and Xena2889 software.

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
Tx disable Enable/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
• Frequency drift over 1st year: +/- 3 ppm (over 15 years: +/- 15 ppm)
• Temperature Stability: +/- 20 ppm (Total Stability is +/- 35 ppm)
Number of transmit streams per port 256 (wire-speed) Each stream can generate millions of traffic flows through the use of field modifiers
Test payload insertion per stream Wire-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 profiles Burst size and density can be specified. Uniform and bursty bandwidth profile streams can be interleaved
Field modifiers 16-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 controls Fixed, random, butterfly, and incrementing packet length distributions. Packet length from 56 to 16384 bytes
Packet payloads Repeated user specified 1 to 18B pattern, a 8-bit incrementing pattern
Error generation Undersize 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 autodecodes Ethernet, 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.
– Burst. Packets per stream are organized in bursts. Bursts from active streams form a burst group. The user specifies time from start of one burst group till start of next burst group.
Number of traceable Rx streams per port 2016 (wire-speed)
Automatic detection of test payload for received packets Real-time reporting of statistics and latency, loss, payload integrity, sequence error, and misorder error checking
Jitter measurement Jitter (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.
Capture criteria All traffic, stream, FCS errors, filter match, or traffic without test payloads
Capture start/stop triggers Capture start and stop trigger: none, FCS error, filter match, payload error
Capture limit per packet 16 – 16384 bytes
Wire-speed capture buffer per port 64 kB
Low speed capture buffer per port (10Mbit/sec) 4096 packets (any size)
(1) The interface implements discrete PHY devices with built in EDC support that employs sophisticated signal processing techniques to recover a 10 Gbps signal that has travelled over a dispersive Copper Direct attach cable and restore a bit-error rate of 10-12 or better.

(2) Counter size: 64 bits
