RE: Request for info: DSL test gear

Since you know of the spirent stuff, have a look at the adtech 4000 (http://adtech.spirentcom.com/)... this system is more capable at the ATM layer, if that matters for you.

Also, try ixia (http://www.ixiacom.com/)... they are the winner on price / performance with IP datagrams.
