Calnex Paragon-X

The Calnex Paragon-X provides testing gPTP (generic Precision Time Protocol) also known as IEEE 802.1AS. The Paragon-X:

  • Provides one-box testing for gPTP-defined Time-Aware systems – End Stations and Relays(Bridges).
  • Allows complete testing of gPTP Correction Field, Neighbor Rate ratio and CSRO (Cumulative Scaled Rate Offset).
  • Can use integrated packet impairments to verify gPTP performance in the presence of network impairments such as delay, PDV or dropped packets.
  • In addition to detailed gPTP/802.1AS testing, the Paragon-X also supports the following profiles: IEEE1588-2008, G.8265.1 (Frequency), G.8275.1 (Phase), C37.238-2011 (Power), and Customer-defined profiles.
  • Contact Calnex for additional information

The Paragon-X is also available for use by UNH-IOL IEEE 1588/PTP Test Service Members

Echo NIC-1

The Echo AVB Certification Kit (includes 1 or more Streamware NIC-1s) is currently recommended for use with VIOLETT™.

For End Station testing, only one NIC-1 is required. For Bridge testing, 3 are sufficient for most tests; 5 cards co-located in the same system is the maximum needed for full in-house Bridge testing. Please contact info@echoavb.com for more information.

Please indicate to Echo that your purchase is connected to your work with UNH-IOL.

AVnu Certification testing at UNH-IOL has been further enhanced with the support of Ixia and their AVB capable solutions.  

For additional information please refer to https://www.ixiacom.com/resources/testing-audio-video-bridging-avb-and-time-sensitive-networking-tsn. As certification testing continues to expand, certification of 10G and 40G bridges are anticipated with this expanded capability.

Oregano Systems syn1588 NIC

  • The IOL INTACT™ Avnu Alliance Member Edition for gPTP currently requires the Oregano Systems syn1588 PCIe NIC.
  • 2 NICs are required for the 12 Bridge-specific tests, and 3 Bridge test parts require 3 NICs.
  • For End Station testing, only one syn1588 NIC is required.
  • The SYN1588PCIENIC-L (large PCI bracket) or SYN1588PCIENIC-S (small PCI bracket) are likely sufficient for your in-house needs.
