The industry-leading JDSU Xgig product family for distributed protocol monitoring, analysis, and testing provides a unique platform offering advanced multi-protocol, multi-application, and multi-channel capabilities. Xgig helps storage equipment manufacturers, field service engineers, and data center IT professionals to overcome the complex design, deployment, and maintanence challenges typical of today’s high-speed serial Storage Area Networks (SAN) and subsystems.
The Xgig platform is a versatile and comprehensive solution for generating, testing, and analyzing live traffic across all major high-speed storage protocols. The Xgig chassis hosts up to four blades capable of testing and analyzing different protocols such as FC, Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI), Serial Attached SCSI (SAS), Serial Attached Technology Attachment (SATA), Gigabit Ethernet (GigE), and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE). Xgig is the only solution on the market that supports end-to-end testing of multiple protocols, multiple applications (analyzing, generation, and testing), and multiple data rates simultaneously on a single platform. This capability provides unparalleled flexibility while maximizing customer return on investment.
Xgig 16G Fibre Channel Analyzer
JDSU Xgig Fibre Channel (FC) products provide best-of-class protocol testing tools specifically for high-speed storage and networking applications. The Xgig 16G Fibre Channel Analyzer is a modular blade for the newly released Xgig 5000 platform designed for high-speed network analysis. It is the most critical tool for engineers developing and troubleshooting FC components and systems with support for Upper Layer Protocols (ULP) such as Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP), Internet Protocol over Fibre Channel (IPFC), Fibre Connectivity (FICON), SCSI, and Fibre Channel Avionics Environment (FC-AE).
- Industry’s most powerful trace capture: Captures 100 percent at any line rate up to the maximum data rate of 14 Gbps (the real wire rate) backed by the largest trace buffer in the industry with 2 GB per SFP+ port
- Each blade can serve as a protocol analyzer, jammer*, and load tester* through a simple software configuration without changing any hardware
- Cascading multiple Xgig systems together can group up to 64 time-synchronized ports for comprehensive system analysis and testing
Industry’s highest time stamp resolution (5 ns)
