Teledyne LeCroy Announces Protocol Analyzer for Testing PAM4-based Network and Cloud Storage Products

  • The Teledyne LeCroy’s SierraNet M648 protocol analyzer provides PAM4 50Gb Ethernet and 64Gb Fibre Channel protocol analysis and traffic impairment system.

Teledyne LeCroy has announced the SierraNet M648 protocol analysis and traffic impairment system, the first-to-market protocol analyzer for 4 level Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM4) 50G Ethernet and 64G Fibre Channel interconnections.

The SierraNet M648 includes a traffic impairment system that precisely introduces timing or syntax errors into network and cloud communication, allowing developers to pretest errors and debug products prior to launch.

Data in the cloud and in data centers are moving in increasing magnitude and at unprecedented speeds. As a result, capturing data is becoming more difficult for network and storage companies, which need solutions to test devices at the highest possible rates.

The SierraNet M648 allows to test new storage products across the widest possible range of configurations and speeds over both Fibre channels and Ethernet.
