|I have a 100BaseT Ethernet Router to Ethernet Router link over several miles of fiber using TCP/IP with fixed IP addresses. Nothing in between except fiber and electrical to optical conversion.|
What test equipment is recommended to measure Bit Error Rate from Ethernet port on one end to Ethernet Port on the other end? Im used to using paired PRBS generator/receiver gear to measure BER on serial links (such as Fireberd 6000a), but how is this done on a packet based link? Is there other equipment that might provide BER or other measurements of link quality for this point to point link?
Any thoughts appreciated.
