PhyView Analzyer

Sifos Technologies offers PhyView Analyzers in two form factors; the multi-slot PVA-3000 and the compact PVA-3002. Both Ethernet testers support the highly innovative and fully automated 10/100/1000 PHY Performance Test Suite covering transmitter, receiver, and auto-neg behaviors of any 10/100/1000Base-T interface. 


Connects up to 24 10/100/1000Base-T ports and provides access to the PHY Performance Test Suite supporting one-click, fully automated transmitter, receiver, and, auto-neg testing.


Compact and transportable 2-port configuration with same testing features as the PVA-3000.
