xGenius is a nice handheld tester equipped with a large touch-screen to make easier the analysis and results interpretation. It is 100% suitable for labs or field use because is full equipped with IP / Ethernet / PTP / SyncE / T1 / E1 / E0 / C37.94 and Datacom interfaces, battery operated, light (1.9kg) and very rugged. The unit is able to test transmission and synchronization networks up to 10Gb/s. It supports master/slave PTP emulation. Multiple operation modes are possible and includes Performance, Quality, One-way Delay and Wander tests at all interfaces. A built-in Rubidium clock disciplined with GNSS oscillator to provides high accuracy and continue working perfectly in holdover mode.
