The Extended Physical Layer Verification System combines bit error rate testing, eye pattern signal synchronization and versatile pattern generation in a single instrument. This is a front line tool for physical layer verification of 1Gb/s and 2Gb/s Fibre Channel, Gigabit Ethernet and InfiniBand gigabit/second devices.

Verifying data integrity is key to insuring the performance and reliability of Gigabit-rate networks and systems. Physical layer testing requires worst-case data loading and bit-by-bit data checking with results presented in an industry accepted format like BER. The GTX-B verifies data integrity by sending industry-standard worst-case data patterns through network devices. These data patterns are designed to stress the physical layer of the system, with patterns specifically developed to check frequency response, data dependencies and network interface components. With bit-by-bit comparison, any difference between the transmitted and received data is detected, counted and captured for additional analysis. Unique data patterns can be created to meet special test requirements. The GTX-B is protocol aware for Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel. The unit recognizes data modifications allowed by devices on the link and does not report them as errors. The GTX-B can also greatly reduce manufacturing test times for test hubs, host bus adapters, Fibre Channel RAIDs, and other active or passive devices by stressing all of the components in the data path. Eliminate the hours of test time looking for a data-dependent error which happened only rarely in a normal traffic stream.
