THRU mode for 10/100 Ethernet testing—If you purchase the optional dual port configuration and the 10/100 option, you can now monitor 10/100 traffic in THRU mode. Optional single-mode and multi-mode GigE and Fibre Channel GBICs—You can now test Fibre Channel (and GigE Ethernet) on an optical link using a single-mode or multi-mode GigE and Fibre Channel GBIC. Optional copper GigE GBIC—You can now test 1G Ethernet on a copper link using a copper GBIC. Optional single-mode long-haul GBIC—You can now test 1G Ethernet over very long distances using a long-haul GBIC. Features and capabilities The FST-2802 provides you with the tools you need to provision Ethernet or Fibre Channel service, verify end-to-end connectivity, and analyze link performance by simulating different traffic conditions. Features and capabilities of the FST-2802 include the following: – Traffic generation—Using the FST-2802 you can generate frames and configure traffic parameters such as bandwidth utilization, frame length, and frame rate. You can simulate different network traffic conditions and analyze the performance of a link by config- uring traffic loads for constant, bursty, and ramped traffic. – Filtered traffic—Using the FST-2802 you can filter received traffic by defining a profile which specifies the frame characteristics of the traffic you want to monitor. –––––––Link status—Using the easy-to-interpret LEDs on the FST-2802, you can obtain a quick summary of the state of the link you are analyzing. The LEDs indicate the status of the link or a specific traffic stream, allowing you to quickly verify circuit integrity or iden- tify the source of a problem. Verify end-to-end connectivity—Using the FST-2802 you can ensure physical layer integrity and verify end-to-end connectivity of a circuit. Link utilization and throughput verification—Using the FST-2802 you can generate traffic at a specific bandwidth to verify the error free throughput of a link. The FST-2802 allows you to loopback frames at the far end to qualify the link in both directions. Identify problems with faulty interfaces—Using the FST-2802 you can perform basic troubleshooting of links and verify the capability of network elements to support reliable communications by trans- mitting standard frames over a circuit. Round trip delay measurement—Using the FST-2802 you can verify that a link complies with round trip delay requirements as specified in a customer’s service level agreement. You can also ensure frame loss and frame error statistics fall within the range specified as acceptable. Service disruption time measurement—Using the FST-2802 you can measure the amount of time it takes to switch service to a protect line. Pattern transmission—Using the FST-2802 you can stress the jitter and noise characteristics of Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel components and systems on physical layer networkstransmitting continuous random test patterns (CRPAT), continuous jitter test patterns (CJPAT), and the compliant supply noise pattern (CSPAT). Ethernet features by In addition to the standard features, the following features are avail- able when performing Ethernet tests using the(FST-2802: – Auto-negotiation—You can configure auto-negotiation before establishing the link, which ensures compatibility between the FST-2802 and any installed Ethernet Interface. ––––––Frame verification—You can verify that the size and format of Ethernet frames conforms to IEEE 802.3 or DIX (Digital/Intel/ Xerox) requirements, ensuring the capability of network elements to support reliable communications. Jumbo frames—You can optionally transmit jumbo frames which exceed the IEEE 802.3 maximum length of 1518 bytes. Loopback frame generation—You can generate loopback frames to loop up a second FST-2802 at the far end. This feature allows you to leave one FST-2802 at a central location to measure bi- directional throughput. IP Ping testing—You can send ping requests and respond to ping messages from another Ethernet device to verify connectivity. RFC 2544 script—You can run a script which automates the test procedures recommended in RFC 2544. The script prompts you to select key parameters for each of the tests, runs the tests, and then automatically generates a text file of results for the tests. User-assigned source MAC address—You can optionally change the default MAC address assigned to each port of the FST-2802 when you configure tests. FibreChannel features In addition to the standard features, the following features are avail- able when performing Fibre Channel tests using the(FST-2802: ––Frame verification—You can verify that the size and format of Fibre Channel frames conforms to ANSI X3T11 requirements, ensuring the capability of network elements to support reliable communications.
