Albedo Ether.Genius

Multi-Technology Performance Testing for Ethernet, E1, Datacom, PTP, SyncE and Jitter and Wander

ALBEDO Ether.Genius is a multi-technology tester that includes an optional Rubidium clock, and equipped with all the features you need to install and maintain Telecom networks based on Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), Synch Ethernet (SyncE), E1, Datacom, PTP (IEEE 15882v2) and Jitter/Wander.


With capabilities such as BER, RFC2544, eSAM, Multistream, MPLS, Jitter, Wander, you have the  capability to verify the transmission layer for performance and quality in order to support audio, video or critical data applications.


Add the built in GPS receiver and Ether.Genius provides powerful One Way Delay measurements capabilities on interfaces including X.21, E1 , C37.94 and Ethernet. No other product offers this capability making it invaluable for network environments where legacy network technologies are installed alongside next generation services.


The addition of Asymmetric testing to Ether.Genius provides users the capability to run independent A ->B and B -> A  performance and timing tests a must have for anyone requiring accurate network measurements.


Designed for the field with a rugged case and easy to navigate GUI through a touch-screen, Ether.Genius is the ideal Ethernet test tool for technicians of all skill levels.
