The Avalon Electronics AE2002 rugged, Ethernet SFP+ data recorder provides users looking to record and playback multiple 10 Gigabit Ethernet streams with a complete turn-key recording system, which is compatible with the IEEE 802.3-2008 Ethernet Standard.

Up to two, 10-Gigabit Ethernet user configurable channels can be recorded or played simultaneously, with an aggregated recording rate of up to 1600MB/sec.  A standard SFP+ socket is provided for optical or copper connection to the two Ethernet channels.

The recorder is controlled via an intuitive GUI allowing the user to configure each channel independently.

Parameters are entered for each channel specifying MAC Address, Frame Address Types, CRC Checking, Preamble Control.  All parameters contain limit checking for an easy-to-use, straight out of the box user experience.

The Recorder may be controlled locally or remotely using either an Avalon-developed Windows based application, or by using the Avalon Command and Control message set.  External control is via the recorder’s 1Gb Ethernet control port.  The Avalon Application can be compiled to operate under a range of Windows and Linux operating systems.

The Avalon Application can control all recorder functions, including: Record, Play, Interface Configuration Settings; and Data Management.

The recorder is designed to be fitted into our new, AE1000-series 19” back-plane chassis and interface with our range of storage modules - but may also be used in stand-alone mode and store to any compatible, remote storage system via a 100GbE fibre-optic link.

Recorded data are stored in a standard file format, allowing transcription and analysis to be readily undertaken using a range of available tools.
