Absolute Analysis (Newbury Park, CA) has released a 10Gbps Ethernet protocol analyzer employing a SFP+ (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) interface and support for the 10GBase-LRM (Long Reach Multimode) standard. The 10Gbps SFP+ test solution provides developers with the capability to connect up to 16 ports in a single chassis, simultaneously utilizing both Ethernet and Fiber Channel. These ports are each synchronized to a common clock, allowing users to monitor multiple points in the network and aggregated links, and time correlate trace information for anomalies.

The analyzer has a 4GB capture memory that is expandable to 8GB, enabling deep capture of over eight million frames for analysis over extended time periods. The Ethernet protocol analyzer features LAN (Local Area Network), WAN (Wide Area Network), SAN (Storage Area Network), and MAN (Metro Area Network) support. The analyzer has up to 32 firmwarebased multi-level triggers and filters to capture specific information required by the user. The analyzer is ideal for users in military and aerospace for embedded systems development and advanced military applications, and in data communications and telecommunications markets for storage development and networking applications.
