The Spirent C50 10/1 G Ethernet dual-speed appliance combines Spirent’s industry-leading
Layer 2–3 traffic generation and analysis with powerful network emulation and application layer
protocols for emulating a wide range of device types, users and protocols.
The C50 delivers the
highest performance per dollar for Layer 2–7 testing in a compact 3U appliance form factor. The
C50 can be used in a benchtop lab environment where excessive equipment noise can be an
issue for operators or in a traditional test lab environment.
The C50’s flexibility makes it perfect
throughout the test lifecycle for functional, performance and benchmark testing of data center
and service provider network infrastructure and evolving SDN and NFV technologies.
SDN and data center: Validate forwarding performance and functional capabilities of
Software Define Networks (SDN) with ultra-low latency and flexible port density. Supports key
technologies like VXLAN, OpenFlow, PCE, Segment Routing and BGP-LS
Device benchmarking: Test using IETF RFC 2544, RFC 2889 and RFC 3918 methodologies
with easy test setup using dynamically bound traffic and automated wizards
Core and edge routers & switches: Verify scale, reliability, performance of Layer 2 & 3
services including data, multicast, and video delivered via unicast routing, multicast routing,
switching, and MPLS VPN technologies
Carrier Ethernet: Verify scale, reliability, performance of Ethernet services delivered via
Ethernet OAM, MPLS-TP, VPLS, PWE3 Psuedowires, bridged Ethernet, packet transport
protocols, or combinations of these technologies
Subscriber emulation: Verify setup & teardown of thousands of access subscribers using
different services over various tunneling technologies (VLAN, L2GRE, MPLS, VPNs, VPLS,
etc...) under normal or exceptional traffic conditions
