Spirent Communications’ new A2 400G Appliance helps accelerate the design and development of new generation high-speed ethernet devices.
Optimized for system and scale testing the streamlined, pre-configured A2 400G Appliance is intended for market segments including network equipment manufacturers (NEMs), service providers, enterprises, chipset vendors, and government that need high-density 400G test capabilities to validate routers and switches.
The Spirent A2 400G Appliance is a flexible platform with high-density 400G ports for mission-critical scale emulation and select functional testing, such as throughput testing with traffic packet blasting, and proof of concept (PoC) labs to emulate a real-world service provider customer network. The next-generation 2U platform is available in 8-port and 16-port variants for high-density 400G testing and protocol scale emulation, such as high-density hardware interoperability testing and ASICS testing for chipset vendors.
The A2 platform delivers a proven test solution for validating 400G QSFP-DD architectures for scalability, reliability and interoperability with automation capabilities that save valuable time and resources to accelerate time to market. In addition, the seven-speed appliance supports 400/200/100/50/40/25/10G Ethernet speeds for network traffic testing at line rate.
