COMET appliance provides high-performance hardware-accelerated solution for testing network infrastructure and devices. It is convenient for Internet service providers or network operators to troubleshoot network problems or guarantee quality of service.
COMET supports testing on physical and link layers. It allows to generate test patterns on network interfaces or reproduce previously recorded traffic respecting timestamps. Thanks to the hardware acceleration of COMBO cards it it able to generate network traffic at wire-speed including the shortest packets that enables in-depth testing of high-speed links and devices. Incoming traffic is checked for bit errors and statistical data are collected, including packet sizes, inter-packet gaps and one-way packet delays with nanosecond precision.
