xGenius | Transport + Synchronisations-Tester

xGenius is a beautifully designed handheld tester equipped with a large touch screen to facilitate analysis and interpretation of results. It is 100% suitable for laboratory or field use as it is fully equipped with IP / Ethernet / PTP / SyncE / T1 / E1 / E0 / C37.94 and Datacom interfaces, battery powered, lightweight (1.9 kg) and very robust. The device is capable of testing transmission and synchronization networks up to 10Gb/s. It supports master/slave PTP emulation. Multiple modes of operation are possible and include performance, quality, one-way delay and wander tests on all interfaces. A built-in rubidium clock (optional) disciplined with a GNSS oscillator provides high accuracy and works perfectly even in holdover mode.
You can buy only a dual-port 10GbE tester of the latest generation, and then add more interfaces as needed with a simple and easy upgrade by code. Then you can get the new firmware that supports the desired functionalities.
