Spirent TestCenter Leveraged for Performance Testing at Industry's Largest MPLS and Carrier Ethernet Interoperability Event
Sunnyvale, Calif. - February 12, 2010 – Spirent Communications plc, the global leader in Ethernet networks, device and services testing, today announced that it collaborated with EANTC for interoperability testing of MPLS and Ethernet across the backhaul, transport and access networks. This multi-vendor interop event, displayed at MPLS Ethernet World Congress 2010 in Paris , leveraged Spirent's expertise in application realism and performance testing.
EANTC is dedicated to proving that technologies such as the MPLS and Carrier Ethernet work through public demonstrations,” said Carsten Rossenhoevel, managing director of EANTC. “Spirent has been a testing partner and active participant in the Carrier Ethernet events and its latest generation of test solutions made it possible to test interoperability of important features and use cases of MPLS.”
The interop test used Spirent TestCenter ™, the award winning integrated layer 2-7 test system, along with the Spirent xGEM. Together they supported several key test cases including IP/MPLS Multicast services, PBB VPLS internetworking, IPv6 BGP/MPLS VPNs, performance monitoring loss and delay using Y.1731, and the generation and impairment of video traffic. Spirent TestCenter is the most flexible, scalable and reliable test system in the industry for testing highly-integrated, converged, MPLS networks of today and tomorrow.
“Spirent is focused on advancing critical networking technologies such as MPLS and Carrier Ethernet,” said Michael Lynge, Corporate Marketing Manager at Spirent. “By participating in these events with a leading lab like EANTC, Spirent helps prove system vendors' solutions are ready for deployment.”
