72‐port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Test Chassis now available from Xena Networks

New 6 port 10G modules means 4U XenaBay chassis offers very high port density for customers testing 10Gbps L2‐L3 Ethernet.

April 9, 2011 ‐ Copenhagen: Xena Networks, an innovative developer of low‐cost, high performance gigabit Ethernet test hardware, has released what is arguably the world’s smallest high‐port density solution for customers testing 10 Gigabit Ethernet. 

“Populating a full 4U XenaBay chassis with our new 6 port 10Gbps modules provides customers with a whopping 72 10‐gig test ports in a single rack mountable,” says Jacob Nielsen, CEO of Xena Networks. 

Designed to address the increasing demand for 10G Ethernet test ports, Xena says the new 6‐port 10GigE module is already proving popular with customers with sales in the US, Europe, Israel and Asia. 

Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis “World Gigabit Ethernet Test Equipment Market” reported a surge in test equipment sales, and that vendors were now under considerable pressure to reduce the price of 10 GbE test equipment. 

“Test vendors are focused on building high‐performance traffic generation and analysis products that demonstrate price and performance leadership,” concluded the analyst behind the report.

Jacob Nielsen confirmed that the new 6‐port 10G module would reflect Xena Networks strategy of delivering 90% of the same L2‐L3 test features as the market leaders but at around 50% of the price.

“This represents enormous value in an industry where gigabit Ethernet is now a commodity rather than IT service,” says Jacob Nielsen.

Like all of Xena Networks’ products, the new 6‐port 10G module is supplied complete with free management software, three years’ free software upgrades and lifetime tech support.

Customers interested in seeing Xena’s test equipment in action can try a live demo on the company’s website, or visit YouTube for a video presentation.
