Agilent Technologies introduces compliance testing support for EEE standards
Feb 27, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Agilent Technologies Inc., a provider of bio-analytical and electronic measurement solutions, has introduced compliance testing support for Energy-Efficient Ethernet, or EEE, standards used in networking applications.
Agilent's solution for transmitter tests includes 10BASE-T, 100BASE-T and 1000BASE-T EEE test standards as described in the IEEE 802.3az-2010 specification.
Growing consumer demand for energy-saving network devices has driven the need for more network testing. EEE technology allows devices such as routers, switches and servers to conserve energy by limiting the power of the network PHY transmitter.
The Agilent N5392B Energy-Efficient Ethernet compliance application provides an automated test script that allows engineers to quickly and reliably test EEE signals. The compliance application can be automated to run over extended periods, and it allows engineers to add incremental user-defined tests. Wilder Technologies, an Agilent partner that specializes in high-signal-integrity test fixtures, provides an EEE test fixture that can be used with Agilent's EEE compliance application.
