ATTEST on Xena Platforms

Veryx and Xena partner to offer Veryx’s broad portfolio of conformance and functional test suites on Xena’s high performance, wire-speed Ethernet test hardware

Xena – Veryx ATTEST

Veryx offers specific Veryx ATTEST test suites also on Xena platforms. The Xena test platform provides an open environment where L2-3 traffic can be generated and performance analyzed at wire speed.

Hardware Platform Details
 XenaBay-edited

XenaBay

  •  Modular platform supporting 1 to 72 ports (144 10G ports)
  •  Wire speed traffic generation
  •  Optical and copper 100GE, 50GE, 40GE, 25GE, 10GE and 1GE test modules
 XenaCompact-edited

XenaCompact

  • Compact platform supporting 1 to 6 ports
  • Wire speed traffic generation
  • Optical and copper 100GE, 50GE, 40GE, 25GE, 10GE and 1GE test modules

 

The XenaBay, XenaCompact and test modules are controlled via Xena Manager-2G, a very easy to use, free Windows GUI client provided for ad-hoc test execution, and remote management of test equipment located in multiple locations. Also included are standalone applications for automated RFC 2544, Y.1564, RFC 2889 and RFC 3918 testing.

An open TCP/IP-based text API lets users automate testing from any software environment, using Tcl, Python, Perl, VBA and Java wrappers to convert to/from the generic Xena Command Line Interface (CLI) format.
