xGenius has 8 inches

xGenius the 3rd Dimension

xGenius is a handheld transmission and synchronization tester equipped with multiple network interfaces and a large capacitive screen. It is light (1.9kg) and very rugged. The unit is able to test Ethernet/IP networks up to 10Gb/s while supporting master/slave Sync-E/PTP emulation. It also has interfaces for T1/E1, Datacom and C37.94. Operation modes Performance, Quality and Wander tests at all interfaces and the ability of PTP/SyncE emulation and analysis, while measuring Freq./Phase, PDV metrics, analyse/generate TIE/MTIE/TDEV and TE. A built-in Rubidium clock provides high accuracy in hold-over.

T1, E1, GbE, SyncE, Datacom, Jitter/Wander, PTP-1588v2

It all depends on time

The instrument is ideal for LTE/TDD/5G deployment because it has EVERYTHING engineers need in IP/Ethernet backhaul and PTP/SyncE synchronization. Field experts do not need to carry several testers with multiple modules to turn up and monitor communication infrastructures.

xGenius is equipped with all of the features you may need or imagine such as Master/Slave PTP emulation up to 10Gb/s, BER, RFC2544, eSAM, Multistream, MPLS, Jitter, Wander, etc. to permit the verification of the transmission layer in those terms of performance and quality required to support critical applications.

Case studies

  • (OPERATIONS)'we need to turnup a 10 GbE network for LTE that must be synchronized with PTP. Do we have any compact tester? '
  • (FINANCE) 'migration towards SyncE has been decided, so the company doesn't need to invest in two separate units for asynchronous and SyncE, just a single GbE test instrument'
  • (MANAGEMENT) 'engineers must be ready and able to troubleshoot any technology'
  • (ENGINEER) 'yes boss, we are willing to do it, we just need a good van and a multitech instrument'
  • (LAB) 'prepare a PTP Master/Slave emulator to test the new LTE base station but please verify both internal and external clock reference'
  • (POWER) 'please verify the hi-voltage teleprotection of lines, multiplexers, transformers and generation plant'
