Learn about the new PAM4 400GE & 200GE data rates and how Xena can help you cost-effectively verify the performance of Ethernet network equipment capable of handling the new speeds.

Flexible solutions to support new speeds

The latest generation of data center equipment can typically support both PAM4 400GE and 200GE data rates as well as the lower NRZ  (10/25/100GE) speeds – all via the same port. When verifying the performance of these products, all rates need to be tested. While this is a challenge for most Ethernet traffic generation and analysis solutions, Xena has a unique solution.

How can Xena help you verify your network equipment performance?

Learn about the new 400GE & 200GE data rates and how Xena’s “Thor” test modules can cost-effectively help you verify the performance of network equipment capable of handling the new speeds.
