Protocol Analyser Supports 16G Fibre Channel and 10Gbps Ethernet protocols
Teledyne LeCroy has added the SierraNet M168 and its new FlexPort Technology to the SierraNet product family. The SierraNet M168 is an 8-port multi-protocol analyser and error injector supporting up to 16G Fibre Channel and 10Gbps Ethernet protocols. FlexPort and 40Gbps Ethernet analysis and error injection capabilities have been added to the SierraNet M408.
Leveraging FlexPort in the SierraNet family of products eliminates the need for costly single-function blades, pods and adapters found in some competitive products. In addition to minimising cost, FlexPort also allows for the creation of portable, highly compact, extremely flexible, multi-function protocol analysers. Utilizing FlexPort, each port-pair can probe both Ethernet and Fibre Channel links up to speeds of 16G on copper or optical cabling.
Other important innovations to the SierraNet platforms include: the integration of two integrated 40Gbps Ports. Integrating the QSFP ports in the hardware eliminates the complexity of external octopus” cables used in competitive products. This also ensures reliable analysis by eliminating the risk associated with the additional 8 potential failure points the “octopus” cables create in a test environment. The SierraNet platforms are 1U and 9.5lbs, saving real estate in labs and racks and offering a portable solution for engineers on the move. Fast and convenient access to data is enabled with a USB3.0 Host Interface that deliver a more than a 5x transfer rate improvement over any other Fibre Channel or Ethernet Analyser. This is particularly important when capturing large amounts of data or when a quick connection to the analyser is required ensuring more of the user’s time is spent testing and less time spent waiting for the analyser to save trace files to the host system.
The SierraNet family includes advanced and easy to use Triggers, Filters and Error Injection capabilities with up to 4 sequencers and up to 24 states per sequencer, providing surgical precision to concisely target areas of interest and save precious time. It also provides for the largest capture capabilities in the market (up to 64GB) and extends this lead even further with dynamic memory allocation. SierraNet products can dynamically assign up to 50% (or up to 32GB) of the total recording memory to one port-pair or spread the memory use across all eight ports dynamically based on the traffic profile. This is necessary when the user can not accurately define the conditions associated with a problem and needs to capture a broad swath of traffic to identify the issue.
