Spirent Offers MPLS and Security Testing Services

Spirent Communications introduced new MPLS Flow Monitoring and Firewall Assessment Services as well as a new level of advanced network technology certification training.

Spirent's Flow Monitoring Service is designed for network operators deploying MPLS-based IP VPN networks. The on-site, five-day service combines Spirent's AX/4000 Broadband Test System and its test experts to assess the performance, interworking and stability of demanding multiple protocols associated with MPLS-VPNs. The AX/4000 monitors and analyses an operator's network in the predeployment phase by emulating its unique topology, helping customers to diagnose, isolate and correct faults among a million or more MPLS-VPN flows.

Spirent's Firewall Assessment Service helps enterprise network engineers to validate the performance and reliability of their security and network infrastructures. Spirent test professionals use the Spirent Avalanche platform for firewall and network testing. Within two weeks, customers receive reports of system performance, behavior under load and attack, user handling capacity and bandwidth capability. This report provides the insight necessary to resolve performance, scalability or security issues.

Finally, Spirent's new certification service provides an ongoing learning experience to customers, enabling them to train and certify in-house staff in testing and network performance analysis. The service leverages Spirent's extensive work with leading network equipment manufacturers to provide customers testing training designed around state-of-the-art hardware, testing applications and network architectures. Students may engage in online, self-paced training or in scheduled on-site, instructor-led courses focused on a "how-to-test" curriculum. Both online and on-site training culminates in the award of SCPA (Spirent Certified Professional Associate) or SCPE (Spirent Certified Professional Expert) certifications.
