Xena Networks Ethernet National Research and Educational Networks (NRENs)

The Xena testers are ideally suited for accurate characterization of the performance 10GbE and higher speed research and educational networks, and for the implementation of WAN research testbeds for advanced technologies such as IPv6, Carrier Ethernet OAM, MPLS, and 40/100G WAN links.

The availability of compatible network performance testers when testing high-speed network links is generally cost prohibitive for the Research and Educational community, which has leads to the use of commodity PC systems and open source tools. The Xena testers are a very good alternative to using commodity hardware, both in terms of performance, consistency, features, and cost.
