Xgig Secure Systems

Supplier: JDSU T&M Australia

Fibre Channel is a high-speed communications protocol widely used in the commercial and military avionic environments (FC-AE).


It is used in setting up data link backbones of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, F-18 Hornet, etc. to provide communication between the integrated core processor and the sensors, as well as the com/nav/identification (CNI) system and the displays. The supported topology includes point-to-point, switched fabric and arbitrated loop (FC-AL) topologies.

Finisar's Xgig® Secure System leverages our expertise in Fibre Channel protocol analysis and is designed specially for military applications. It supports the commonly used FC-AE protocols such as FC-AE-ASM, FC-AE-1553 and FC-AE-RDMA. It also supports both Avionic Fibre Channel class 2 and class 3 services.

A key feature of the Xgig Secure System chassis is a 2 GB Flash drive containing the system and application kits which can be removed and stored separately from the chassis for maximum data security protection. When engaged in the chassis, the drive is securely key-locked to prevent unauthorized removal.

The Xgig Secure System performs testing of Fibre Channel interfaces configured in any topology including those used in avionic environments. A single system can provide traffic generation, error injection, and advanced analysis across 16-ports (maximum) with data rates from 1Gb/s to 10.5Gb/s.

With an advanced hardware synchronization technology, Finisar's Xgig platform is able to time-sync as many as 64 ports with time resolution of only 5ns, allowing for analysis of complicated networking structures including switch fabric and correlating data flow.

Xgig Expert software provides a unique and robust debugging and analysis tool capable of automatically sorting through millions of events to quickly identify performance, upper layer protocol, logical layer, and physical layer issues. Widely accepted by commercial applications, Xgig Expert is considered the best troubleshooting tool for Fibre Channel.
