Spirent in Action

Spirent test equipment is used by most of the world’s well-known and respected independent labs to test, measure, and validate the latest developments of cloud, data center, virtual and hybrid environments, applications, security, services, and test automation over high speed Ethernet networks.

H3C S12516X-AF sets new world records for Datacenter performance & scale at 100G

H3C commissioned independent test lab Network Test to validate the performance and scalability of its datacenter core switch. This is, by far, the largest assessment of 100G Ethernet switch performance yet conducted, with 768 100G Ethernet ports. Network Test assessed the H3C switch including performance stress tests, and in terms of control-plane metrics such as BGP and MP-BGP routing with IPv4 and IPv6 traffic; Ethernet VPN (EVPN) scalability using VXLAN tunnels; and the impact of in-service software upgrades (ISSU).
