Transceivers come in a multitude of formats and are a ubiquitous part of most networks and server rooms. Small form-factor (SFP) and enhanced small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) remain the standard for 1GE and 10GE Ethernet but are making way for the next generation that support speeds up to 400GE such as QSFP-DD and OSFP.
Network cabling remains an intrinsic part of connecting devices in Local Area Networks (LANs). The performance and reliability of twisted pair, coaxial and fiber optic cables can determine the same parameters of the network.
Valkyrie and Vantage are ideal for testing the performance and interoperability of these essential networking components.
