Network Performance Testing Applications

40/100 GbE
100 Gigabit testing has become essential as bandwidth-intensive applications continue to push the limits of the current infrastructure. Spirent solutions enable generation of realistic multiplay traffic for the highest scale edge and core IP services testing to validate performance, scalability and realism.

Converged Networks/Net-Centric Operations
Spirent is the leading provider of PSTN to Voice over IP (VoIP) convergence testing. As networks evolve, Spirent simplifies the testing of converged applications and devices which becomes an overwhelming necessity as networks become more complex.

Data Center Testing
Spirent validates the performance of data centers by providing a unified Layer 2-7 test architecture specifically designed to test the end-to-end performance of 40/100 Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) convergence, virtualized server networking, cloud computing-based applications and security.

Developing IMS ready equipment means working in a multi-protocol environment with developing standards and proprietary extensions. IMS promises tremendous opportunity, however along with this is the threat of unhappy users' complaining about networks failing, poor media conversion rates and less-than-satisfactory service performance.

IPTV & Video
IPTV brings new, complex challenges and scalability issues that affect Quality of Experience (QoE) for government users, including video telephony, educational video-on-demand and streaming video. Bandwidth demands and IPTV's unique characteristics must be weighed against the business value it delivers.

IPv6/Dual Stack
With the mandate to migrate all military and commercial networks to IPv6, the challenge lies in ensuring the proper operation and performance of large-scale network systems while containing migration costs.

Load Balancing
Government agencies use Server Load Balancers (SLB) to maximize the flow of information requested from servers without becoming a bottleneck. The bandwidth requirements of streaming video and additional security features increase the complexity of optimizing traffic flow.

Mobile Applications
As mobile devices mature, testing has become more focused on verifying the operation of applications and advanced features. The performance of these software-based features often directly impacts end users' experience. Testing wireless data services such as EMS, SMS, MMS, MoIP and mobile video prior to deployment is critical.

Network Infrastructure
Ethernet services are extending out from Local Area Network (LAN) to IP services for LAN, Metro Area Network (MAN) and Access deployments. The challenge lies in selecting and deploying the right combination of products that deliver features that work together on your specific network while keeping costs under control.

Router Testing
As the power, scalability and complexity of each generation of routers increases, so does the pressure to speed deployment and manage converged network applications - all at reduced cost. A critical government issue is the challenge of migrating to IPv6-based routing while containing costs.

Security Testing
Firewalls and intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS) are the first line of defense against unauthorized entry into a network that threatens continuity of operations. The escalating number of threats, vast number of IP or user dialogs, and the demands on network processing combine to challenge agencies trying to secure their networks.

Switch Testing
Gigabit Ethernet switches have become the building blocks for next generation infrastructure. The rapid growth in scalability as well as the complexity of voice, video, data and management of these services adds to the challenges of port density requirements.

The issues surrounding migration to VoIP are both technical and commercial. Users desire perfect response and added value at no cost. Customer expectations surrounding circumstances such as making emergency calls during a power outage require VoIP networks to deliver the same quality as a carrier class network.

Web Applications
Users need access to applications and data around the clock. Failure and poor response times of web-based applications can destroy battlefield awareness and "sensor to shooter" timeliness. Agencies must ensure that applications and systems are performing at optimal levels-regardless of time of day, traffic volume, or security attacks.
