LANforge Part Details

Candela Technologies offers pre-configured LANforge systems to simplify your choices. You may choose to load LANforge-FIRE and/or LANforge-ICE software on your existing hardware and purchase the required software licenses. This can be an economical way to create a test environment suited to your particular needs, but it cannot compare with the ease-of-use of pre-configured LANforge hardware delivered to your door!

LANforge license fees are based on the number of ports, speed of those ports, and the number of machines. The minimum order is two port licenses and additional port licenses are sold at a discount.

Please contact sales@candelatech.com or call +1 360 380 1618 for help choosing an optimal configuration.
