10GBASE-T test

Tektronix Inc. claims the first one-button solution for the full-range of 10GBASE-T measurements with the release of its XGbT test automation software and test fixtures. The oscilloscope-based solution lowers cost by nearly 50 percent, removes complexity and improves usability compared to competitive 10GBASE-T test solutions that may require the use of up to three separate instruments.

The market adoption of 10G Ethernet is expected to grow exponentially over the next several years, driven by such bandwidth-hungry applications as streaming video, VoIP, IPTV, video conferencing over Ethernet, virtualization technology, server consolidation and more. This growth means that the entire supply chain for 10GBASE-T will demand low-cost, reliable, fast and easy to operate test equipment such as the new Tektronix XGbT Automation Solution.

"The need for an improved 10GBASE-T solution spans chip makers, product developers and manufacturers around the world," said Brian Reich, VP of performance oscilloscopes at Tektronix. "With our XGbT software and fixtures, we are delivering an affordable one-button solution that can perform repeatable conformance and validation tests at the press of a button, making it ideal for both design and manufacturing applications."
