CALABASAS, CA. -March 8, 2022 -Spirent Communications plc (LSE:SPT) announced the availability of its latest 400G and 800G test platforms at OFC2022. These solutions enable providers to ensure their 400G infrastructure is up to the challenge of today’s data growth needs, while preparing 800G to be the future workhorse of the cloud’s backbone.
Spirent A1 400G Appliance delivers the industry’s highest port density to validate infrastructure and services dependent on high-speed Ethernet technologies, with traffic loads that emulate the real world. This gives service providers and hyperscale data centers confidence they can support massive growth, meet customer expectations, and keep costs in check. Spirent’s A1 test platform enables large capacity testing of ultra-high-scale, next-generation-enabled multi-terabit cloud data center fabrics, as any performance degradation in the backbone disrupts critical fixed and mobile services – potentially bringing SLA penalties, customer support issues, and troubleshooting costs that can run to millions of dollars each year.
“The cloud’s meteoric growth requires its Ethernet backbone to be constantly reinvented, leaping forward in each release with double or even quadruple the speed and capacity of previous releases,” said Aniket Khosla, Spirent’s VP of Cloud and IP Product Management. “Spirent continues to be the industry’s trailblazer for Ethernet validation, bringing new test solutions to market first so that the Ethernet infrastructure ecosystem and service providers are able to keep moving forward to meet the insatiable demands for performance and capacity.”
“We value our partnership with Spirent and we’re pleased that our solutions are featured in their 400G demo at OFC,” said Osa Mok, Chief Marketing Officer at InnoLight. “Spirent is uniquely positioned to help their customers manage validation across entire ecosystems and we look forward to our continued collaboration.”
