Higher Speed 이더넷 테스트의 진화

대역폭 요구 사항이 네트워크 장치의 한계를 넘어섬에 따라 장비 제조업체는 훨씬 더 밀도 높은 40/10GE 장비를 도입하여 경쟁해야만 합니다. Xcellon-Multis는 광범위한 테스트 요구를 충족시키기 위한 Ixia의 차세대 아키텍처 및 테스트 솔루션입니다. 인터넷 사업자 와 대기업에서 이와 같은 장비를 자체 네트워크에서 구현하려면 설치 전에 성능과 기능을 테스트 및 검증해야 합니다.

Ixia의 Xcellon-Multis QSFP load 모듈 제품군은 업계에서 가장 밀도가 높은 10GE 및 40GE HSE(Higher Speed 이더넷) 테스트 장비로 구성되어 load 모듈당 12개의 40GE 포트에서 보다 폭넓은 테스트 범위와 듀얼 레이트 40GE/10GE 성능을 모두 단일 슬롯 load 모듈로 제공합니다. 이더넷 테스트의 새로운 패러다임인 혁신적인 10GE 팬아웃 기술을 채택한 Xcellon-Multis는 고속 포트 하나를 저속 포트 여러 개로 팬아웃할 수 있습니다. 이 초고밀도 load 모듈은 제품 라이선스, 설치 공간, 전력 및 쿨링에 필요한 총 비용을 줄임으로써 높은 투자 수익을 가져다 줍니다.
