In today’s marketplace, Ethernet and Fibre Channel (SAN) services are the focus of metropolitan area network data offerings. Fibre Channel networking technology is used to link storage systems and servers, and the storage industry is experiencing significant growth. By enabling Ethernet and Fibre Channel testing (both 1.0625 and 2.125 Gpbs) on the FST-2802, service providers are able to turnup and verify both set of services from the same test instrument, using the existing workforce with minimal training. In addition, the enhanced BER testing capability enables technician to stress test the layer 1 (physical layer) and layer 2 using a wide range of stress test patterns.Moreover, the dual port feature enables service providers to simultaneously stress two circuits with the full line rate traffic, and perform bi-directional monitoring of Ethernet and Fibre Channel circuits to verify that the network can support reliable communications.
