Spirent TestCenter: Does the DX3/PX3 card support QSFP28

Environment/Versions
  • PX3-400GQ-T2
  • DX3-400GQ-T2
Answer
  • Yes, but only in the latest releases:
    • Seems that around 5.16 release (November 2020 release) PX3/DX3 cards which support NRZ card were released
      • enlightenedNeed to set the card to STC-NRZ Mode performance mode under port level - General Tab
    • Prior to 5.13 the cards only supported PAM 4 encoding while QSFP28 requires 25 GB per lane NRZ encoding
