Available in low cost APG4 or APG8 versions supporting 4 or 8 ports of 10Gbps and with an additional 2 ports of 40Gbps available on the 8 port APG208 the Axtrinet™ Ethernet Packet Generators provide full wire rate packet generation and reception on every port. Ideal for Ethernet performance testing or as an Ethernet load generator in an R&D lab, or as part of an automated test solution in a manufacturing test environment, these compact and portable units are packed full of high performance features and yet are easy to use through a simple Graphical User Interface.

And with the Axtrinet Ethernet Packet Generator Software Release V2.0 now available with the following additional features, the APG range is even more compelling.

  • QSFP+ ports can be configured as 40Gbps or 4x10Gbps
  • Multi-Burst Transmit Mode and Packet per Second Transmit Rate
  • Optional Port ID, packet sequence number, transmit and receive timestamps (to ±8ns resolution) for latency and jitter measurements.
  • Up to 1GB ‘deep’ buffer available for line-rate packet capture at 10Gbps and 40Gbps
  • Save captured data to PCAP file for analysis in Wireshark.
  • TCL API for Linux and Windows

Designed for applications in R&D, Test, and Manufacturing environments the Axtrinet APG Packet Generators enable reliable and affordable testing of:

  • Ethernet Network Equipment such as Switches, Routers, Firewalls, and Network Monitoring devices
  • Specialist devices such as FPGA based accelerator NIC cards and offload appliances
  • Ethernet Infrastructure Installations encompassing cabling and switches

Don’t risk shipping untested equipment; use the Axtrinet APG Packet Generators to verify correct operation of new products in the development environment and at the factory.
