Xgig 16G Fiber Channel Analyzer (Discontinued)

The Xgig 16G Fiber Channel Analyzer is a modular blade for the newly released Xgig 5000 platform designed for high-speed network analysis.

The industry-leading VIAVI Xgig product family for distributed protocol monitoring, analysis, and testing provides a unique platform offering advanced multi-protocol, multi-application, and multi-channel capabilities. Xgig helps storage equipment manufacturers, field service engineers, and data center IT professionals to overcome the complex design, deployment, and maintanence challenges typical of today’s high-speed serial Storage Area Networks (SAN) and subsystems.

The Xgig platform is a versatile and comprehensive solution for generating, testing, and analyzing live traffic across all major high-speed storage protocols. The Xgig chassis hosts up to four blades capable of testing and analyzing different protocols such as FC, Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI), Serial Attached SCSI (SAS), Serial Attached Technology Attachment (SATA), Gigabit Ethernet (GigE), and Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE). Xgig is the only solution on the market that supports end-to-end testing of multiple protocols, multiple applications (analyzing, generation, and testing), and multiple data rates simultaneously on a single platform. This capability provides unparalleled flexibility while maximizing customer return on investment.
