FLEXIBLE PACKET GENERATION
Each Ixia 10 gigabit Ethernet test port is capable of generating precisely controlled network traffic at wire speed using Ixia’s IxExplorer test application. Millions of packet flows, with fully customizable packet header fields, can be configured on each port. Flexible header control is available for Ethernet, IPv4/v6, IPX, ARP, TCP, UDP, VLANs, QinQ, MPLS, GRE, and many others. Payload contents can also be customized with incrementing, decrementing, fixed, random, or user-defined information. Frame sizes can be fixed, varied according to a pattern, or randomly assigned across a weighted range. Rate control can be flexibly defined in frames per second, bits per second, percentage of line rate, or inter-packet gap  time.
REAL-TIME LATENCY
Packets representing different traffic profiles can be associated with packet group Identifiers (PGIDs). The receiving port measures the minimum, maximum, and average latency in real time for the packets belonging to different groups. Measurable latencies include:
·    Instantaneous latency and inter-arrival time where each packet is associated with one PGID
·    Latency bins, where PGIDs can be associated with a latency range
·    Latency over time, where multiple PGIDs can be placed in "time buckets" with fixed durations
·    First and last time stamps, where each PGID can store the timestamps of first and last received packets
TRANSMIT SCHEDULER
There are two modes of transmission are available – packet stream and advanced stream scheduler:
·    Packet Stream Scheduler. In packet stream scheduler mode, the transmit engine allows configuration of up to 4000 unique sequential stream groupings on each port. Multiple streams can be defined in sequence, each containing multiple packet flows defined by unique characteristics. After transmission of the first stream, control is passed to the next defined stream in the sequence. After reaching the last stream in the sequence, transmission may either cease, or control may be passed on to any other stream in the sequence. Therefore, multiple streams are cycled through, representing different traffic profiles to simulate real network traffic.
·    Advanced Stream Scheduler. In advanced stream scheduler mode, the transmission of stream groupings is interleaved per port. For example, assume a port is configured with three streams. If stream 1 is defined with IP packets at 20% of line rate, stream 2 is defined with TCP packets at 50% of line rate, and stream 3 is defined with MPLS packets at 30% of line rate, data on the port will be transmitted at an aggregate utilization of 100% with interleaved IP, TCP, and MPLS packets.
EXTENSIVE STATISTICS
·    Real-time 64-bit frame counts and rates
·    Spreadsheet presentation format for convenient manipulation of statistics counters
·    Eight QoS counters (supporting 802.1p, DSCP, and IPv4 TOS measurements)
·    PRBS mode per-PGID statistics:
o PRBS Bits Received
o PRBS Errored Bits
·    PRBS BERT user-defined statistics with trigger condition
·    Extended statistics for ARP, ICMP, and DHCP
·    Transmit stream statistics for frame counts and rate
·    External logging to file for statistics and alerts
·    Audible and visual alerts with user-definable thresholds
DATA CAPTURE
Each port is equipped with 512 MB of capture memory, capable of storing tens of thousands of packets in real time. The capture buffer can be configured to store packets based on user-defined trigger and filter conditions. Decodes for IPv4, IPv6, UDP, ARP, BGP-4, IS-IS, OSPF, TCP, DHCP, IPX, RIP, IGMP,
CISCO ISL, VLAN, and MPLS are provided.
DATA INTEGRITY
As packets traverse through networks, IP header contents may change resulting in the recalculation of packet CRC values. To validate device performance, the data integrity function of GbE ports allows packet payload contents to be verified with a unique CRC that is independent of the packet CRC. This ensures that the payload is not disturbed as the device changes header fields. In addition to the data integrity check, NGY-NP offers PRBS testing, which detects errors within encapsulated Ethernet frames and provides errored-bit identification and bit error rate (BERT) calculations.
SEQUENCE AND DUPLICATE PACKET CHECKING
Sequence numbers can be inserted at a user-defined offset in the payload of each transmitted packet. Upon receipt of the packets by the device under test (DUT), out-of-sequence errors or duplicated packets are reported in real time at wire-speed rates. The user can define a sequence error threshold to distinguish between small versus big errors, and the receive port can measure the amount of small, big, reversed, and total errors. Alternatively, the user can use the duplicate packet detection mode to observe that multiple packets with the same sequence number are received and analyzed.
TCL API
Ixia's GbE ports are supported by a comprehensive Tcl application programming interface (API). This API allows users to develop custom scripts, and integrate the modules into automated test environments.

FLEXIBLE PACKET GENERATION
Each Ixia 10 gigabit Ethernet test port is capable of generating precisely controlled network traffic at wire speed using Ixia’s IxExplorer test application. Millions of packet flows, with fully customizable packet header fields, can be configured on each port. Flexible header control is available for Ethernet, IPv4/v6, IPX, ARP, TCP, UDP, VLANs, QinQ, MPLS, GRE, and many others. Payload contents can also be customized with incrementing, decrementing, fixed, random, or user-defined information. Frame sizes can be fixed, varied according to a pattern, or randomly assigned across a weighted range. Rate control can be flexibly defined in frames per second, bits per second, percentage of line rate, or inter-packet gap  time.
REAL-TIME LATENCY
Packets representing different traffic profiles can be associated with packet group Identifiers (PGIDs). The receiving port measures the minimum, maximum, and average latency in real time for the packets belonging to different groups. Measurable latencies include:
·    Instantaneous latency and inter-arrival time where each packet is associated with one PGID
·    Latency bins, where PGIDs can be associated with a latency range
·    Latency over time, where multiple PGIDs can be placed in "time buckets" with fixed durations
·    First and last time stamps, where each PGID can store the timestamps of first and last received packets
TRANSMIT SCHEDULER
There are two modes of transmission are available – packet stream and advanced stream scheduler:
·    Packet Stream Scheduler. In packet stream scheduler mode, the transmit engine allows configuration of up to 4000 unique sequential stream groupings on each port. Multiple streams can be defined in sequence, each containing multiple packet flows defined by unique characteristics. After transmission of the first stream, control is passed to the next defined stream in the sequence. After reaching the last stream in the sequence, transmission may either cease, or control may be passed on to any other stream in the sequence. Therefore, multiple streams are cycled through, representing different traffic profiles to simulate real network traffic.
·    Advanced Stream Scheduler. In advanced stream scheduler mode, the transmission of stream groupings is interleaved per port. For example, assume a port is configured with three streams. If stream 1 is defined with IP packets at 20% of line rate, stream 2 is defined with TCP packets at 50% of line rate, and stream 3 is defined with MPLS packets at 30% of line rate, data on the port will be transmitted at an aggregate utilization of 100% with interleaved IP, TCP, and MPLS packets.
EXTENSIVE STATISTICS
·    Real-time 64-bit frame counts and rates
·    Spreadsheet presentation format for convenient manipulation of statistics counters
·    Eight QoS counters (supporting 802.1p, DSCP, and IPv4 TOS measurements)
·    PRBS mode per-PGID statistics:
o PRBS Bits Received
o PRBS Errored Bits
·    PRBS BERT user-defined statistics with trigger condition
·    Extended statistics for ARP, ICMP, and DHCP
·    Transmit stream statistics for frame counts and rate
·    External logging to file for statistics and alerts
·    Audible and visual alerts with user-definable thresholds
DATA CAPTURE
Each port is equipped with 512 MB of capture memory, capable of storing tens of thousands of packets in real time. The capture buffer can be configured to store packets based on user-defined trigger and filter conditions. Decodes for IPv4, IPv6, UDP, ARP, BGP-4, IS-IS, OSPF, TCP, DHCP, IPX, RIP, IGMP,
CISCO ISL, VLAN, and MPLS are provided.
DATA INTEGRITY
As packets traverse through networks, IP header contents may change resulting in the recalculation of packet CRC values. To validate device performance, the data integrity function of GbE ports allows packet payload contents to be verified with a unique CRC that is independent of the packet CRC. This ensures that the payload is not disturbed as the device changes header fields. In addition to the data integrity check, NGY-NP offers PRBS testing, which detects errors within encapsulated Ethernet frames and provides errored-bit identification and bit error rate (BERT) calculations.
SEQUENCE AND DUPLICATE PACKET CHECKING
Sequence numbers can be inserted at a user-defined offset in the payload of each transmitted packet. Upon receipt of the packets by the device under test (DUT), out-of-sequence errors or duplicated packets are reported in real time at wire-speed rates. The user can define a sequence error threshold to distinguish between small versus big errors, and the receive port can measure the amount of small, big, reversed, and total errors. Alternatively, the user can use the duplicate packet detection mode to observe that multiple packets with the same sequence number are received and analyzed.
TCL API
Ixia's GbE ports are supported by a comprehensive Tcl application programming interface (API). This API allows users to develop custom scripts, and integrate the modules into automated test environments.
