Novus, Novus-M, and Novus-R are Keysight's next-generation architecture and Ethernet test solutions that satisfy the test needs of both high-density, multi-rate switch/router makers and the organizations implementing the network equipment. Supporting 8-ports of native QSFP28 100GE, 16-ports of 50GE, 8-ports of 40GE, up to 32-ports of 25GE or 10GE per load module, Novus load modules enable interoperability and functional testing, as well as high-port-count performance testing.

Complex multi-rate Ethernet and networking test requirements have emerged for validating 100GE, 50GE, 40GE, 25GE, and 10GE on the same physical port. Novus native QSFP28 100GE interfaces, along with 50GE, 40GE, 25GE, and 10GE speed and fan-out cable support, address these requirements with a more efficient and flexible set of 100/50/40/25/10GE test use cases.
