What is OSNT?

The world's first open-source hardware traffic generator and capture system.

OSNT is low cost: it is based on the NetFPGA platform and can be built for less than $2000.
OSNT is open source: all the hardware and software designs are freely available for you to use and extend.
OSNT works out of the box: it comes with some standard libraries for generating and capturing user-selected packet lenghts at different rates.
OSNT is extensible: it is easy to add new features and adapt it to your needs.

Our approach has demonstrated lower-cost than comparable commercial systems while achieving similar levels of precision and accuracy; all within an open-source framework extensible with new features to support new applications, while permitting validation and review of the implementation.
