Test Ethernet Switches

Test. Improve. Repeat.

Ethernet switches have come a long way since they first hit the market in 1990. Today the focus is on enabling them to handle the ever-increasing demand for security, while coping with the ubiquitous access required for IoT, 5G and TSN. As the complexity increases, so does the need for rigorous testing.

Many Xena’s customers use our Valkyrie traffic generators to do performance and QoS testing on Layer 2 and Layer 3 switches. Vantage is also used extensively by manufacturers to verify switch performance during production.
