Xena Networks: Valkyrie Freya 800-Gbps Ethernet TGA Platform

Feb. 6, 2022
Valkyrie is one of very few platforms capable of generating Ethernet traffic up to the new maximum of 800 Gbps. This capability is achieved with Xena’s new “Freya” test module which uses 112-Gbps SerDes PAM4 to achieve the rate of 800 Gbps.
Xena’s flagship Valkyrie Ethernet Traffic Generation and Analysis (TGA) Platform is a cost-effective test solution for evaluating the performance, functionality, and conformance of Layer 2-3 stateless Ethernet devices. Valkyrie is one of very few platforms capable of generating Ethernet traffic up to the new maximum of 800 Gbps. This capability is achieved with Xena’s new “Freya” test module which uses 112-Gbps SerDes PAM4 to achieve the rate of 800 Gbps. Freya is already being tested by large NEMs and chip manufacturers and will be generally available early in 2022.

Judge’s Comment: “Ethernet testing has become a nightmare scenario with so many different protocols and signaling types to test. The ability to create full Ethernet payloads at Layers 1, 2, and 3 is a great feature.”
