VeEX RXT-6402 Advanced Dual 400G Multi-service Test Module
Advanced 2x400GE Multi-service handheld test set for Lab to Field Applications
VeEX® RXT-6402 is the industry’s most flexible, compact, and future-proof handheld test solution for Core, Metro, Datacenter, and Access applications. The VeEX RXT-6402 Dual 400G offers the flexibility of testing current interfaces and supporting future expandability for applications including Transport, Aggregation, cross-connect, 5G x-haul, and NEMs field support.
The RXT-6400 family has been the leading test solution for portable 400G testing. The RXT-6402 expands its applications and flexibility. Equipped dual test ports to support all common optical transceiver form-factors, AOCs and DACs, this module is a perfect complement to the RXT Platform, extending its testing range to 2×400 Gbps and offering an upgrade path to all-in-one 400GE multi-service testing. Installation, verification, commissioning, evaluation and maintenance tasks are simplified thanks to a combination of intuitive GUI and powerful test functions. Novice users benefit from the easy-to-use GUI, while experienced users will appreciate an array of advanced layer 1-to 4 test features, such as FEC codeword Error distribution analysis, PAM4 pre-emphasis, skew, transceiver check and stress, Lane BERT, Throughput test, IPv4/IPv6 and much more.
As 400GE becomes mainstream, it is important for test equipment to support all test interfaces required to maintain existing legacy infrastructure and data links.
