Spirent Communications is known for its global expertise in testing and measurement, offering an extensive portfolio of solutions to test data centers, cloud computing environments, high speed Ethernet networks and services, 3G/4G wireless networks and devices, network security and global navigation satellite systems.
Spirent's mission in this space is to help validate SDN/NFV technologies and accelerate their adoption in Service Provider, Data Center and Enterprise environments. Spirent delivers the required test methodologies and results to determine if the technologies can deliver the business benefits without impacting the quality of service (QoS) of the network and the quality of experience (QoE) of the end-user experience.
Many of Spirent's products are powered by multi-core Intel® processors, enabling simultaneously scale up on multiple dimensions by assigning separate cores to different functions/protocols. The Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (Intel® DPDK) drivers vastly improve the data-plane performance of Spirent offerings such as TestCenter* and Avalanche.*
