Anue Systems Ships 8x Fibre Channel Network Emulator

AUSTIN, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 28, 2007 -- Anue Systems, the leader in high performance network emulation, has announced general availability of the world's first 8x Fibre Channel Network Emulator.

"As servers increase processing power and bus speeds in response to increased bandwidth demands, a faster infrastructure is required," said Chip Webb, CTO of Anue Systems and architect of the new solution. "The backward compatibility of the 8x FC standard is attractive because it allows network planners to increase bandwidth without a costly forklift upgrade."

Anue Systems network emulators are used in network test labs to simulate the effects of real world network environments. Supported protocols include IP, Ethernet, Fibre Channel, SONET/SDH, OTN, and CPRI. Anue Systems network emulators introduce network delays, errors and other network impairments during network testing and system validation, providing confidence that customers' systems and network applications will operate effectively when deployed.

The Anue Systems 8.5 gigabit FC solution, which can simulate up to 250 ms (50,000 km) of network delay in a test lab, incorporates commercial XFP modules. Network equipment manufacturers will use the 8x FC network emulator to validate the functionality and performance of Fibre Channel devices and network applications. Service providers will use the new solution during planning, design and network testing to assure service reliability and reduce support costs.
