Traffic generators have changed a lot, in terms of performance, capability and price-performance. This is a chance to see the latest and greatest from Xena Networks and SwiftTest. Xena provides a new class of Ethernet tester for the 100G/40G Ethernet eco-system, delivering a breakthrough price performance benchmark for BERT, load-stress, and functional testing of Ethernet equipment and network infrastructure. Full-line-rate testing of layer 1/2/3 performance of 100 Gbit/s and 40 Gbit/s Ethernet links is provided. The high precision, stream based, layer 2/3 wire-speed traffic generation and analysis capabilities are suited for testing of network devices under deliberate error, stress, and random conditions. Packet formats can be defined per individual packet byte, and packet spacing, transmission rates,and bursts can be defined with byte and kbps accuracy.

SwiftTest storage testing appliances are the industry’s premiere tools for functional and performance testing of networked storage, storage-aware network devices, and storage services. You can now choose to test with a single product that supports CIFS/SMB, NFS, iSCSI, and HTTP with ports that can be configured as either client or server, and that can generate over 34Gbps of traffic. In addition, the SwiftTest Test Development Environment provides graphical test configuration and control so that you save test time and resource time whilst realising savings in hardware and power consumption.
