Trilithic adds handheld Ethernet tester
Trilithic has introduced a single hand-held tester for complete testing of Ethernet, IP, and LANs.
Trilithics MetroNet 5000 features dual 10GbE interfaces for in-line monitoring and wrap-around testing at 10GbE for faster problem resolution. With packet and frame filtering, the user can focus and filter measurements on several types of traffic and even emulate a particular carrier service.
The MetroNet 5000 can flood device-under-test port traffic for stress testing of routers and switches and simulate distributed denial of service attacks and intrusions to emulate viruses and security breaches.
"It's a sophisticated test set that's simple to use and budget conscious," says Terry Bush, President of Trilithic. "Its lightweight and intuitive design are trademarks of Trilithic systems and it sets new standards in the Ethernet and IP realm for features versus price."
The MetroNet 5000 comes in multiple configurations: the 5020 has two GbE interfaces, the 5100 one 10GbE interface, the 5120 has one 10GbE interface and two GbE interfaces, and the 5200 is equipped with two 10GbE interfaces.
