The SierraNet M648 family offers the most cost effective, advanced and fully integrated Ethernet and Fibre Channel data capture and protocol verification systems available for developers and protocol test engineers. The M648 protocol analysis systems provide engineers with 100% recording of all Fibre Channel and Ethernet related traffic at full line rates on all ports and offers the addition of error injection and traffic corruption with our InFusion™ tools for advanced validation and verification testing.
The SierraNet M648 hardware platform and graphical user interface provides the highest level of performance and flexibility available in the market for legacy and todays’ emerging high-speed network and fabric deployments.
The SierraNet M648 provides ultimate flexibility in analysis and verification of traditional or converged Ethernet and Fibre Channel products in a single platform and the flexibility to add protocol specific features, functionality, and speed support at the time of purchase or later by the addition of license keys.
Each FlexPort SFP28 pair can probe both Ethernet and Fibre Channel links of speeds up to 50Gbps/link for Ethernet and/or 64G FC/link on copper or optical cabling and eliminates the need for separate "single function" blades, pods, or adapters found in some competitive products providing a highly compact, extremely flexible, multi-function protocol analyzer.
The SFP28 pairs may be aggregated to support 100Gbps Ethernet links, and the integrated QSFP-DD connections support all Ethernet rates – 50GbE, 100GbE and 200GbE link traffic – for both analysis and jamming applications.
In addition to FlexPort technology, the SierraNet M648's sophisticated analysis and jamming software, the Net Protocol Suite, provides unmatched flexibility with customized data displays that easily identify and navigate to specific events of interest quickly. Decoding in the Net Protocol Suite's multiple trace views provide superior visibility for troubleshooting low level to application layer issues, decode per the supported specifications and their associated encoding schemes, and the zero-time search and filter capabilities easily find Ethernet and Fibre Channel events in a contextual and intuitive way. In a multi-protocol environment, Teledyne LeCroy's CrossSync™ can synchronize and correlate traces with our other leading protocol analysis tools, such as the PCI Express Summit analyzers, to understand how traffic, stimulus, and/or errors propagate across bridges or adapters.
