variation
√
X
Provide accurate DV/FDV
measurements
Multi-Flow monitoring
√
X
Monitor multiple concurrent flows
simultaneously
Loopback at line rate
√
X
Allow line rate loopback for all MTU
sizes, support PRBS string
Accurate frame loss measurements
√
X
Detect even a single frame loss

wait for a reply
“Loopback packets which
have VID 100 & IP SA
117.155.160.13 + perform
IP & MAC swap”

Carrier Ethernet NID
ETX-204A
• Supports L2 or L3 loopbacks up to line rate
• Can be used for throughput testing across routed/switched networks.
• Flexible loopback criteria:
– Src\Dst MAC, Src/dst IP, VLAN, p bit, DSCP, etc.
– Vlan+Mac, VLAN + IP, Vlan+Pbit, etc.
• Non-Intrusive loopback on a dedicated flow – always “on” , with no need to
configure the remote NTU
• Ability to loopback many flows simultaneously (on both user & network sides)
