  • Compact PhyView Analyzer

    PVA-3002 - Sifos Technologies, Inc.

    The 2-Port PVA-3002 Compact PhyView Analyzer is designed to bridge the wide coverage gap between comprehensive Ethernet twisted pair PHY IEEE 802.3 compliance testing and simple packet verification testing. The PVA-3002 introduces an innovative multi-port capability dedicated to 10/100/1000BaseT (copper) physical layer characterization under controlled impairments including line loss, ingress noise, jittered or offset timing, and even Power-over-Ethernet. The PVA-3002 tests Ethernet switches and routers, discrete LAN interfaces, link transmission components, and network service integrity at any DTE interface.

  • IEEE 802.3at LLDP Emulation & Analysis

    PSA-LLDP & PSL-LLDP - Sifos Technologies, Inc.

    With the 802.3at standard, PoE has moved in the direction of bypassing layer 1 PD classification in favor of a MAC (or Link) Layer PD classification that offers very high power distribution granularity and enables dynamic negotiation of power levels between PSE and PD. The link layer scheme uses a PoE-specific Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) as specified in the new Clause 79 of IEEE 802.3 with additional protocol rules defined in Clause 33 (IEEE 802.3at). LLDP is a link (point-to-point) MAC protocol historically used to allow switches and routers to automatically "discover" what is around them and to populate and maintain a MIB that can be used for viewing and managing a network topology. PSA-3000 and PSL-3000 platforms each offer a feature upgrade that enables flexible emulation and analysis for PoE "Plus" LLDP. The upgrade is available in the form of an instrument-specific license code that may be purchased from Sifos Technologies.

  • IEEE 802.3at PD Analyzer & Verifier

    PDA-602AB - Sifos Technologies, Inc.

    The PDA-602B Powered Device Analyzer is a single-box comprehensive solution for testing IEEE 802.3at PoE Powered Devices (PD’s). It offers one-button, fully automated test sequences and limit checking for critical Powered Device PoE characteristics. With measurements performed at the Powered Device network interface, many parameters critical to IEEE 802.3at interoperation can be accurately assessed relative to specification requirements, thus fully avoiding the need for and limitations associated with interoperability testing using IEEE 802.3at PSE’s.

  • Impairment & DC Unbalance Modules

  • PhyView Analyzer Performance Test Suite,

    PVA-3000-PTS & PVA-3002-PTS - Sifos Technologies, Inc.

    Comprehensive 10/100/1000 PHY Testing Made Easy! Ethernet interface testing has never been easier than the PhyView Test Suite for the PVA-3000. This group of fully automated tests can be automatically sequenced across up to 24 10/100/1000BaseT ports to produce colorful and graphical reports of interface performance. Sequencing and reporting is accomplished with just a few mouse clicks in PVA Interactive software or with a single command in PowerShell PSA. Unlike traditional packet testing, PhyView Performance Tests clearly and independently characterize transmitter, receiver, and physical interface performance in quantitative terms that predict link performance over the full range of possible applications.
