Modular platform for telecom / datacom testing

The NIC is a scalable solution for verifying and qualifying the performance of
today’s multi-protocol global communications networks.
With a flexible software/firmware-based architecture, the scalable NIC Plus
combines in a single platform the multitude of traditional hardware-based
test sets required to install, maintain, and monitor high-speed multi-protocol
The NIC products support a variety of test applications for the transport
