XEST-1: 10 Gigabit Ethernet Service Tester

XEST-1 expands the capabilities of GEST-1K to support 10 GbE wire-line rate. Most of the features are identical to GEST-1K.

The device is designed to work without requiring on-site local technicians. Test engineers can control the device remotely from a network operations center. With its minimal size and weight, combined with the capability for wire-line QoS testing and a web-based user interface, the XEST-1 provides cost-effective service and setup testing for Carrier/Metro Ethernet service providers, and it reduces CAPEX and OPEX to support an increasing number of subscribers. XEST-1 makes helps to ensure successful deployment for Carrier/Metro Ethernet service providers, with the best cost performance in the industry.

Features

  1. Specially designed for Carrier/Metro Ethernet service
  2. Smallest and lightest device in the industry per 10 GbE port
  3. Just plug it in: no technicians required on-site, control remotely from an NOC
  4. 10 GbE wire-rate generation and QoS capability
  5. Easy-to-use, web-based user interface
  6. Use an AC adapter or battery power (5 hours)

XEST-1's hardware architecture is very simple: A high performance SoC-based (System-on-chip) FPGA enables most of the functionalities of the product. In addition to the 10 Gbps wire-line transmission and capture related engines, the device contains an Ethernet MAC that guarantees no frame loss in Tx/Rx with a shortest Inter Frame Gap (IFG) of 96bits in 10 GbE. An MIPS-based processor in the device controls the system including the test manager, generation and capture engine, statistics engine and upper layer protocol stacks. The combination of these features brings you the simplest, fastest and easiest Ethernet setup testing with the best cost performance.
