RE: Testing Bandwidth performance

  • From: Daniska Tomas
  • Date: Wed Jun 26 05:10:58 2002

a few months ago i was playing with a box from anritsu, they can do several gbps for very interesting price
well yes - i could feel on the box they still are an startup - but they seemed very open

as far as i know they developed the box by cisco's request and cisco is using it for lab measurements
they also can do latency/jitter measurements with two such boxes clocked by gps

A transistor protected by a fast-acting fuse will protect the fuse by blowing first.
