“The increasing number of internet connected devices including high powered mobile phones, home cameras and smart appliances puts high bandwidth pressure on existing 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) networks,” said Vijay Kulkarni, CEO of GL Communications. “As a result, high speed 2.5 Gbps technology is being deployed throughout the world. A convenient advantage of 2.5 Gbps networks is that it can use existing cabling infrastructure. This allows network administrators to upgrade their existing networks without any major investments in infrastructure. The move to 2.5 Gbps Ethernet networks is necessitating the need for Ethernet testing at 2.5 Gbps bandwidth.”

He further added, “GL Communications, a worldwide leader in Ethernet testing, has added 2.5 Gbps support on its existing 1 Gbps/10 Gbps testing platform – PacketExpert™ 10GX. This enhancement makes our PacketExpert™ 10GX platform even more flexible. Now users can perform the testing at three different speeds – 1 Gbps, 2.5 Gbps and 10 Gbps, all using the same hardware. For existing users, the two 10 Gbps ports, already present, can be converted to 2.5 Gbps ports with an appropriate SFP and a simple software upgrade.”

The entire range of testing applications that are available for 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps speeds are also available for 2.5 Gbps. These include:
