Xena Networks, a developer of high-performance gigabit Ethernet test hardware, has released a compact, high-port density product for customers testing 10 gigabit Ethernet.

Xena Networks, a developer of high-performance gigabit Ethernet test hardware, has released a compact, high-port density product for customers testing 10 gigabit Ethernet.

“Populating a full 4U XenaBay chassis with our new 6-port 10Gbps test modules provides customers with a whopping 72 ten-gig test ports in a single rack mountable,” says Jacob Nielsen, CEO of Xena Networks.

The new release is designed to address the increasing demand for 10G Ethernet test ports. The new 6-port 10GigE test module is already being adopted in the U.S., Europe, Israel, and Asia.

Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, “World Gigabit Ethernet Test Equipment Market,” reported a surge in test equipment sales, and that vendors were now under considerable pressure to reduce the price of 10 GbEtest equipment.

Nielsen confirmed that the new 6-port 10G module would reflect Xena Networks strategy of delivering 90% of the same L2-L3 test features as the market leaders, but at roughly 50% of the price. “This represents enormous value in an industry where gigabit Ethernet is now a commodity rather than IT service,” he says.

Xena Networks’ new 6-port 10G module is supplied with free management software, three years’ free software upgrades, and lifetime tech support.
