Informatics A high speed LAN hardware standard for communicating among PCs, which can link up to 1024 nodes in a bus network. See Local area network, Packet swltching. Cf Fiber distributed data interface.
The device also incorporates link diagnostic capabilities including voltage-time offsetting, BER calculators and traffic monitors which when complemented with highly programmable Ethernet frame, PRBS and custom test pattern generators and checkers, can provide highly granular data on the health of a high speed serial link in a dense and cross talk dominated back plane environment.
Occam's BLC 6450 also received the MEF 14 certification for traffic management and service performance, which tested for carrier Ethernet frame delay, frame delay variation, and frame loss ratio metrics as well as bandwidth profiles per ingress UNI, per EVC, and per Class of Service.
Ethernet Extenders are being used to tap into that existing copper wire to transmit Ethernet frames up to 10,000 feet to Ethernet attached devices like routers, switches, PCs, digital sensors, VoIP phones, Wi-Fi Access points and IP cameras.
In 2014, the company predicts that hybrid clouds will become the dominant vision for IT; questions on data sovereignty will impact private and public storage; 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40GbE) (a standard that enables the transfer of Ethernet frames at speeds of up to 40 gigabits per second) adoption will take off in the data center; big data evolves from analysing the data you have to driving the collection of new data and clustered storage; converged infrastructure, object storage, in-memory databases will all continue momentum in 2014.
Emulate Packet loss in each direction can be specified in a single value, periodic loss, burst loss, or as bit errors (BER) of values of 1x10-18 or greater; supports packet duplication, contents of received Ethernet frames
