Keysight's Metronome is a precision test instrument that seamlessly integrates with our test solutions to enable large-scale, time-synchronized testing of complex networks.
Metronome enables devices under test (DUT) and an IxNetwork test system to use the same time reference. The Metronome enables massive-scale time-synchronized testing using up to 8 directly connected chassis when using one Metronome. If a massive scale is required, the Metronome-STAR topology can be used for up to 48 AresONE connected in a synchronization system. The Metronome and the Metronome Timing System Extender together provide connection and distance flexibility between Metronome and the attached chassis.
- Unified platform for L2-7 testing: a unified solution for executing a wide array of data, routing, and bridging protocol emulation; and signaling, voice, video, and application testing from layers 2-7
- Extensive interface support: higher speed Ethernet 400GE, 100GE, 50GE, 40GE, 25GE, 10GE, and 10/100/1000 Mbps copper Ethernet
- Hot-swap capability: load modules can be actively swapped in and out of the testbed without disrupting ongoing tests that is using installed modules
- High performance: high-speed backplane supports high bandwidth requirements of large-scale application tests
