Teledyne LeCroy Announces 40G Native InFusion

Protocol and Jamming on single port pair of 40Gb Ethernet

Santa Clara, CA, Mar 14, 2014 - Teledyne LeCroy, the worldwide leader in protocol test solutions, today announced its new 40 Gb Ethernet InFusion. The SierraNet™ M408 supports 40G InFusion and provides an error injector ("jammer") for the 40G Ethernet environment. The SierraNet M408 with InFusion Error Injector and Traffic Modifier option is an error injector and traffic modification tool that allows you to verify real‐world fault handling for Ethernet systems. InFusion can sit unobtrusively in the data path on a live system to programmatically alter or corrupt traffic. InFusion is the ideal tool for stress testing systems using actual workloads. The SierraNet M408 with 40G Infusion allows developers and test engineers the ability to dynamically modify 40G Ethernet traffic. By creating desired scenarios, with an easy drag, drop and modify user interface, design engineers can easily modify or corrupt known traffic, injecting errors or timing delays to validate system recovery.

The SierraNet M408 40G solution allows analysis, jamming and traffic modification on a single 40G port pair. This allows engineers the ability to view the traffic prior to modification as well as afterward to see how their system reacts and recovers. Using a single port pair allows companies to maximize port usability and minimize the cost per port of testing and verification. The SierraNet M408 with its unique FlexPort™ technology gives engineers full analysis and traffic modification of either 10G or 40G traffic in a single 1U chassis. The 40G InFusion can be used on either native 40G port pairs or on eight 10G port pairs.

In addition to the 10G and 40G Ethernet capabilities mentioned above, the SierraNet M408 also provides support for 16G Fibre Channel, allowing customers that develop products for both Ethernet and Fibre Channel a single system for testing and verification of both product sets, significantly reducing the cost of test equipment.

The SierraNet M408 with 40G Native InFusion option can be ordered today. Shipments will begin May 1, 2014.
