Spirent Delivers First 2.5GbE and 5GbE BASE-T Test Solution

Spirent Communications introduced the first 2.5G and 5G BASE-T Ethernet test solution.
The Spirent DX2 2.5G and 5G BASE-T Ethernet test solution is a high-density 16-port test module supporting line rate Layer 2-3 test traffic and analysis for 100M / 1GbE / 2.5GbE / 5GbE / 10GbE interfaces. This series of modules has single-slot blades compatible with Spirent N11U and N4U modular chassis and its other Ethernet and Wi-Fi products.


“A 1Gbps wired Ethernet link between access points and switches is no longer adequate.  The new access points require higher speeds like 2.5/5G over existing Cat5e and Cat6 copper cable infrastructures in order to address bandwidth constraints in enterprise, campus, and data center networks. With Spirent’s new multi-speed 100M/1G/2.5G/5G/10G Ethernet test module, testing for today and tomorrow’s enterprise access speeds has never been easier,” stated Abhitesh Kastuar, general manager of Spirent Communications.

Spirent is a member of the NBASE-T Alliance.

Spirent Debuts First 50Gb Ethernet Test System

Spirent unveiled the world's first 50 Gbps Higher Speed Ethernet test solution.

Spirent's 50GbE Boost system tests layer 1 to layer 3 quality and highlights error-free performance with different combinations of streams, frame lengths and rates by delivering per-port and per-stream statistics such as latency, frames out of sequence, frame counts and rates, L1 PRBS capability and layer 1 statistics to help debug physical link problems.

"According to Dell'Oro Group 2015 data, 50Gbps servers will represent more than 30 percent of server shipments in 2019, up from essentially zero percent today," says Abhitesh Kastuar, General Manager of Spirent's Cloud and IP business. "With virtualized applications driving server performance it makes sense that access speeds are increasing from 10 to 25 and further to 50Gbps.  I believe the rapid adoption of 25G and 50G server links will drive the move to 100GbE and beyond for the uplinks from the leaf nodes to the spine nodes."

Spirent Launches Landslide Diameter Testing

Spirent introduced its Landslide Diameter solution for testing network signaling protocols at scale.  Peak events known as signaling storms can degrade and disrupt network services. Sprint said the use of IP networks for signaling and the move to “always on” Internet of Things (IoT) and other connected devices is driving huge levels of signaling traffic in the mobile network, necessitating the need for testing at scale.

Landslide Diameter lets carriers and their vendors emulate specific Diameter applications to test specific nodes or test the network from end-to-end to ensure that the management and monetization functions operate at extreme scale. The test system can be used to simulate real-world traffic scenarios or call models at scale so carriers can see what happens on a node-by-node basis. The call models can be adapted to test the impact new services and devices will have on the control network. These tests remove the guesswork out of predicting signaling traffic loads so they can adequately and effectively architect their networks. Carriers and vendors worldwide use Spirent Landslide in the design, optimization, monetization, and maintenance of their broadband and mobile network.

Landslide Diameter is a key component of Spirent Landslide, a suite of advanced test tools for mobile networks and services that emulates millions of mobile subscribers simultaneously accessing wireless networks using various mobile devices.
