Physical Test Probes

Carrier Ethernet and IP test probe to perform benchmarking and testing for MEF 3.0, CE 2.0, RFC 2544, Y.1564, etc. and Y.1731 based active performance monitoring

Test Platforms for MEF 3.0, CE 2.0, RFC 2544, Y.1564, Y.1731 and TWAMP Testing and Monitoring

Veryx probes can generate Ethernet traffic of up to 10G at line rates to enable active testing (MEF 3.0, CE 2.0, RFC2544, Y.1564) of Service Attributes and Bandwidth profiles and continuous monitoring of performance SLAs. The traffic generated by Veryx probes can be received at the other end by a peer Veryx probe or looped back by a peer access device to perform the required measurements.

Veryx Ethernet and IP test probes come in a range of hardware options to suit the varying requirements of Network Service Providers.

All Veryx hardware platforms come with PktBlaster test automation and traffic generation and analysis toolkit designed for testing Carrier Ethernet and IP based devices.

Veryx hardware platforms are capable of generating stream-based traffic and analysis of received packets based on streams as typically needed in functional and conformance testing scenarios. This helps the tester to release expensive traffic generation ports and optimize test resource utilization.

With PktBlaster toolkit, it is possible to define and generate hundreds of transmit- and receive-streams with their own exclusive traffic profile. Each stream can generate many unique traffic flows by using programmable packet field modifiers. Generated Ethernet and IP traffic can be used to perform verification of equipment under real-world conditions.
