Evolve Your Multi-Rate Ethernet Testing

High-Density 10G/1G/100M Multi-Rate Ethernet In One Load Module

Novus 10/1 family of load modules offer complete Layer 2-7 (L2-7) network and application testing in a single system.

Support for Dual-PHY (SFP+ and 10GBase-T RJ45) allows for up to line-rate L2/3 traffic generation and analysis, high-performance routing/bridging protocol emulation, and true L4-7 application traffic generation and subscriber emulation all with one load module. With up to 16 Dual-PHY ports per module, you can create ultra-high-density test environments for 10GE/1GE/100M Ethernet over copper and fiber. Up to 192 10GE/1GE/100M Ethernet test ports are supported in a single 12-slot chassis.

Novus 10GE/1GE/100M load modules are available in three different models to match your requirements and budget:

  • NOVUS10/1GE16DP: A full-featured 16-port, Dual-PHY (RJ45 and SFP+) 10GE/1GE/100M load module designed for high-density requirements.
  • NOVUS10/1GE8DP: A full-featured 8-port, Dual-PHY (RJ45 and SFP+) 10GE and 1GE load module designed for high-density switch testing. To support evolving test needs, users can perform a software field-upgrade to a full 16-port NOVUS10/1G16DP load module.
  • NOVUS1GE16DP: A full-featured 16-port, Dual-PHY (RJ45 and SFP+) 1GE and 100M load module designed for high-density requirements.
