Problem: 
Can I run a layer 2 or 3 Ethernet traffic test to another manufacturers testset?
Solution: 
To run a quality of service test with a testset from a different manufacturer it is necessary for one of the testsets to be placed into a logical loopback mode. This is done on the Viavi unit by enabling the LLB function on the device such as TB5800, HST, MSAM or Smartclass Ethernet. The test can then be initiated from the far end testset. If the far end testset also supports a logical loop then they can manually place their unit in loopback mode for the test to be initiated from the Viavi test device.
