It truly takes confusion out of Ethernet testing at all protocol layers - from raw Ethernet to IP/UDP packets. It can also be used as a general purpose Ethernet performance analysis tool for 10/100 Mbps or 1 Gbps Ethernet local area networks. Two of the 4 ports have both Electrical and Optical interfaces, enabling testing on optical fiber links as well”.He a

It includes various parameter configurations such as Test Selection, Frame Sizes, Unidirectional/Bidirectional, Number of trials, Trial Duration, and many more. User-defined options to configure various packet header parameters, like MAC addresses, IP addresses, UDP ports etc. Results are displayed in both tabular as well as graphical format”.
