The China Academy of Telecommunication Research of the Ministry of Information Industry is working with Spirent (SPM) for large-scale testing of 10-Gigabit core routers.
Spirent test solutions will enable CATR to test the performance of core routers under high-capacity configurations and extreme networks conditions found in real-world operations.
The test systems provide wireline packet generation and analysis, along-side sophisticated QoS models for simulation of real-world network scenarios. The CATR test environment consists of 16 ultra-high capacity 10 Gigabit per second (Gbps) packet over SONET (PoS) interfaces.
As a part of the test series, Spirent will assess the performance of MPLS platforms, VPNs, multicast service and IPv6 networks. With these series of tests, CATR will be able to fully access the extreme forwarding capacity of core router devices and understand the technological trend of mainstream routers.
"Spirent is honored to be able to provide the China Academy of Telecommunication Research with test solutions for the large-scale 10-Gigabit core routers testing," said Gene Zhang, vice president and general manager for Spirent Communications Asia, in a prepared statement. "Spirent test systems along with professional services allow customers to validate complex products and services within a defined timeframe and budget."
The test series also will provide valuable data and experiences to telecom research organizations in China for research and explorations on router testing methodologies.
