Employing Cisco Network Design Best Practices 

Using a 100% Cisco Modeling Labs (CML) compatible virtualized network test tool such as Spirent TestCenter Virtual, you have the flexibility of testing in a variety of environments, from mixed physical and virtual to virtual-only scenarios or even labs located in a public cloud.  IT teams have access to functionality that includes the ability to generate any customer-defined traffic encapsulation, a wide range of emulation capability and measurement of key performance metrics.


The virtual test solution’s connectivity to CML is supported in a variety of deployments – from chassis-based hardware for precision and performance to virtual ports for convenience and flexibility – Spirent solutions are supported on any cloud type including on premise, public, private, and hosted).

For many customers, having access to a test environment such as CML to emulate and design topologies is a new and challenging concept. Leveraging the Cisco Network Design methodology, experience and best practices from Spirent you can transition from an ad-hoc manual workflow to a fully automated on demand virtual test bed. 

You can utilize both CML and Spirent TestCenter Virtual to assure that your network is verified in the lab before issues are found in production.  Test your deployments today with Spirent Virtual and Cloud solutions and join us on active conversations through LinkedIn and Twitter.
