CMA5000 10 Gigabit Ethernet Module

Product picture



The CMA5000 10 Gigabit Ethernet test set easily enables network installation, commissioning and troubleshooting. The module is a double size module featuring XFP modular optics. The user interface has dedicated modes for unsurpassed ease of use; these modes include Ping, Traffic generation/monitoring, Performance analysis (RFC2544), BERT, Sequence testing and Capture and decode. These targeted applications ensure easy and efficient measurement of critical networks parameters including throughput and frame loss.


  • Variable line rate traffic generation, up to full line rate
  • Configurable IP and Ethernet source and destination addresses (Support of IPv4 and IPv6 addressing)
  • Unicast and broadcast frames
  • EtherType II (DIX V.2), IEEE 802.3 with 802.2 (LLC1) and IEEE 802.3 with SNAP encapsulation
  • Adjustable frame size from 64 bytes to 9,600 bytes provides testing of undersize, oversize, and jumbo frames
  • User definable VLAN ID and VLAN priority
  • Configurable data field (payload) supporting PRBS or user defined payload
  • User definable traffic mix (Broadcast and Unicast)
  • Frame sizes may be set to constant, stepped, or random length to emulate real world traffic profiles
  • In addition, when used with Ethernet or IP address swapping, all measurements may be performed in loopback or point-to-point networks allowing the CMA5000 to measure any network topology for unsurpassed versatility
