VeEX Metro & Carrier Ethernet

VeEX MLX100 Intelligent Ethernet Loop Back Device

Next Generation of Metro and Carrier Ethernet Testing
VeEX™ MLX100 Metro Loopback Expert is an intelligent Ethernet loopback device developed as a perfect companion to the MX100+, MX120+, MX300, and TX300 products.

Loopback control can be performed in-band or via the built-in 10/100Base-T Ethernet port via an Internet connection. When paired with the compatible MX/TX series, the MLX100 is the industry’s most costeffective solution for point-to-point Service Level Agreement (SLA) verification and end-to-end performance testing.

Key Features

  • Low cost Ethernet loopback device for testing end-to-end network performance when paired with MX100+, MX120+, MX300, TX300, or 3rd party Ethernet testers
  • Ideal for testing transparent, switched, routed, and next generation carrier grade Ethernet networks
  • 10/100/1000Base-T Electrical port (IEEE802.3), RJ45
  • 1000Base-X Optical port supporting hot swappable, MSA compliant SFP transceivers
  • BERT, RFC2544 and Throughput application eliminating the need for an expensive remote test partner
  • Smart Loop mode for Layer 1, Layer 2, Layer 3, and Layer 4
  • Intelligent device Discovery mode
  • In-band loopback control; accepts loopback commands from MX100+, MX120+, MX300, or TX300
  • Out-of-band operation via 10/100Base-T Ethernet management port and ReVeal software
  • Activate a loopback profile from a remote location
  • Default loopback profile storage for fast and easy loopbackready boot-up
  • RS232 supervisory port to configure IP address
  • Remote control capability and loopback profile creation/upload through ReVeal PC software

 

  • Layer 1, Layer 2, Layer 3, and Layer 4 modes are available for looping back test traffic
  • Layer 1: loops back all incoming traffic
  • Layer 2: all incoming unicast traffic is looped back with MAC source and destination addresses swapped
  • Layer 3: all incoming unicast traffic is looped back with MAC and IP source and destination addresses swapped
  • Layer 4: all incoming unicast traffic is looped back with MAC, IP, and UDP/TCP ports swapped

 

VeEX MLX100 General Spec

 

Carrier Ethernet Distributed Testing
When the MLX100 Intelligent Loopback device is used in conjunction with an MX100+, MX120+, MX300, or TX300 test set, a complete end-to-end and distributed test solution becomes available 24/7/365. The MX or TX units generate Ethernet/IP test traffic to the MLX100, which will loopback the test traffic for analysis. This test scenario can be carried out for BERT, RFC2544, and Throughput test applications.VeEX_MXL100_Ap_ET

 

End-to-End Performance Testing
Irrespective of Ethernet service being installed, it is always necessary to verify that the network can carry out and cope with the allocated bandwidth required by the customer. Service Level Agreements (SLA) compel service providers to measure network throughput and other performance characteristics to ensure that bandwidth associated with different service types conform to customer expectations.
