Ixia, a provider of converged IP network test solutions, has announced that its K2 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) test solution was implemented in AT&T’s testing of a standard-ready, single-flow, 100 GE field trial.
Ixia’s K2 100 GE higher speed Ethernet load module provided IP traffic generation and BERT testing for the 100 GE connection, demonstrating AT&T’s ability to trial a 900-kilometer ultra long-haul transport link between Louisiana and Florida.?
The K2 family can validate IEEE P802.3ba standard-based products, and is fully compatible with standard Ixia chassis and load modules.
K2 modules generate and analyze full 40 GE and 100 GE layer 2-7 line rate traffic, with up to 1 million distinct flows per port. The modules support unframed bit error ratio tests (BERT) as well as PCS compliance and performance testing.
