SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Continuing to lead the storage networking industry with innovative testing technologies for emerging protocols, Finisar Corporation (NASDAQ: FNSR) today announced delivery of the world's first complete Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) 10 Gigabit Ethernet protocol testing tool suite. Built on Finisar's proven Xgig(R) technology, the industry's leading multi-function, multi-protocol testing and analysis platform, the new 10GE/FCoE Analyzer, 10GE/FCoE Load Tester, and 10GE/FCoE Jammer offer the most complete support for storage and networking companies designing FCoE and converged Ethernet systems.

The 10GE/FCoE Analyzer provides unparalleled visibility into network transactions. The 10GE/FCoE Load Tester creates test traffic streams designed to stress network equipment and verify FCoE functionality and performance. The 10GE/FCoE Jammer tests system robustness, the performance of priority traffic flow, and error recovery capabilities by manipulating live traffic flows. Additionally, the multi-protocol capabilities of the Xgig platform enable developers to evaluate and analyze network traffic as it crosses protocol domains such as the topology of the FCoE network linking to Fibre Channel storage equipment.

"In early interoperability testing, it is important to have robust tools that allow rapid problem identification and root cause analysis," said Joe Gervais, senior director of product marketing, Emulex Corporation. "Finisar's tools allowed Emulex to quickly capture and analyze FCoE behavior during the recent FCIA Fibre Channel over Ethernet plugfest, greatly enhancing our efficiency at the event."
