Smart SFP IP SLA Probe

Smart SFP IP SLA Probe is a network performance monitoring and diagnostic device in the SFP form factor. Smart SFP is installed in any network device with an SFP slot and acts simultaneously as a standard SFP module and IP SLA Probe.

Smart SFP IP SLA Probe provides a possibility to execute Y.1564, TWAMP tests, to turn up smart loopback on L2-L4, analyze traffic statistics and capture traffic.

It can be used on mobile operators networks, ISP networks for performance monitoring or by enterprises for service assurance.
