LG U+ Employs Spirent TestCenter for Terabit Router Testing

LG U+ is using Spirent's TestCenter to verify the performance of a leading vendor’s 100G Ethernet core network router and its ability to support more than 2.0 Tbps bandwidth. As it moves to an LTE network, LG U+ is planning to deploy 100G routers.

LG U+ used Spirent TestCenter with 10G and 100G Spirent HyperMetrics neXt modules to emulate several routing protocols including Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Protocol-Independent Multicast (PIM) and MPLS for IPv4 and IPv6, while generating a wide range of traffic patterns at full line rate for routing emulation. The tests validated the high-speed router’s ability to support QoS and IPv4/IPv6 routing capacity and data forwarding performance of 2.0 Tbps.
