Product Description

Intelligent Network Test Platform Brief



RFC2544 Test:

GAO-ENET-103 fully meets RFC2544 standard, supports Throughput; Latency; Frame loss; and Back-to-Back test in metro network, and can be able to generate a complete test report.



Frame Loss Test

Back-to-back Test

BERT Test:

Ethernet BERT test adopts the similar principle of SDH BERT test. It is by transferring the Ethernet frames with special test code, then analyse these frames at the receiver to test the network.

Multi-Stream Test:

GAO-ENET-103 supports to generate multiple data streams to test the forward ability of these service in Ethernet network. In addition, multiple data streams can be set as different priority.

OAM Test (Coming Soon):

OAM test supports IEEE 802.3ah, IEEE 802.1ag, ITU-T Y.1731, and ITU-T G.8113.1 OAM link and services protocol. It includes partner link detection, remote loopback, MIB retrieval, and link event notification. It also can check network connection, connection ring back; generate link trace messages, and analyse service level of OAM test application. ITU-T Y.1731 OAM message can practice frame loss performance verification. ITU-T G.8113.1 OAM message can verify the PTN network, and practice and the frame loss performance verification.

Y.1564 Test:

RFC2544 was the most popular standard for Ethernet test. However, it is specially designed for indoor network facilities test, not suitable for outdoor field test. Hence, ITU‐T Y.1564sam is particularly introduced for telecom operator to do Ethernet network service launch and fault diagnosis. Compared with RFC2544, it includes critical SLA standards such as packet jitter identification and QoS measurements, which could increase test speed promptly, save test time and resource, and optimises QoS.

Network Configuration Test

Network configuration test will conduct a test for every service to verify whether the service configuration is correct or not, and whether all specific KPI or SLA parameters have been satisfied.

Performance Test

When the configuration of every service has been checked, and verified successfully, GAO-ENET-103 will conduct a test for the quality of service simultaneously.
