From core to access, and from SONET/SDH to Ethernet and FTTx, wireline infrastructure is a vital component of any network. Discover our wireline testing solutions.
Transforming from 100GEthernet to 400GE: objectives, differences and new physical interfaces
Like previous Ethernet speed increases, 400G is designed to satisfy the ever-increasing demand for higher bandwidth, to deliver content in increasingly efficient ways.
High-speed networks are under intense pressure from consumer markets as data and traffic volumes explode of cloud services, smartphones, social media apps, UHD 4k/8k video streaming and ongoing implementation of the Internet of Things.
Selecting the Optimal Test Methodology for Ethernet Service Turn-Up
An Service Level Agreement (SLA) is an agreement between a service provider and their end customer. It states that the turn up or validation (also referred to as “burned in”) of an Ethernet service must be measured and must meet the specifications defined within that SLA. These performance measurements commonly include throughput, latency, jitter, frame delay variation (FDV), frame loss and out of sequence (OOS).
iSAM: Simplifying Ethernet Testing for Today’s Network Reality
As a result of ever-increasing competition in the telecom industry, service providers need to turn up next-generation Ethernet services more quickly to get to revenue faster.
Best Practices for 10G and 40G Network Forensics
On highly utilized 10G and 40G networks, capturing network traffic from individual SPAN ports on switches and routers typically results in spotty visibility, compromising an IT team’s ability to respond to network outages, performance degradations, and security threats. How should IT organizations re-think their network forensics strategies, now that 10G and faster networks are becoming the norm? Read this paper to learn about best practices for recording, storing, and analyzing network data.
