A 10Gbps Ethernet protocol analyzer employing a SFP+ (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) interface and supporting the new 10GBase-LRM (Long Reach Multimode) standard is a test solution that provides complete analysis with no data loss at 10Gbps and at distances to 220 meters (720 ft).
The Absolute Analysis 10Gbps SFP+ test solution lets developers connect up to 16 ports in a single chassis, simultaneously using both Ethernet and Fiber Channel. These ports are each synchronized to a common clock so that you can monitor multiple points in the network and aggregated links, and time correlate trace information for anomalies. The analyzer also has a 4 GB capture memory that is expandable to 8 GB, enabling deep capture of over eight million frames for analysis over extended time periods.
Additional features include the ability to use an external clock source to ensure user control; LAN (Local Area Network),WAN (Wide Area Network), SAN (Storage Area Network), and MAN (Metro Area Network) support; up to 32 firmware-based multi-level triggers and filters capture specific information required by the user, as well as detect protocol anomalies.
