To help optimize tools and infrastructure, the nGenius® 3900 Series Packet Flow Switch from NETSCOUT® is a modular, chassis-based switch architecture, that supports high-density 1GbE, 10GbE, and 40GbE. NETSCOUT’s Test Optimization product line provides specialized hardware and software to meet requirements that are unique to test labs.
NETSCOUT commissioned Tolly to evaluate the Layer 1 functionality of the NETSCOUT S-Blade Pro in both 10GbE and 40GbE network topologies evaluating the latency across a full range of RFC 2544 frame sizes as well as with jumbo frames and utilization statistics.
In comparing the Layer 1 latency to a leading Layer 2 switch vendor, the NETSCOUT is 15x faster!
Beyond performance, we also found that the NETSCOUT S-Blade Pro delivered:
- Error-free operation & minimal jitter at all packet sizes
- Utilization metrics for visibility into test tool and system-under-test port usage
- Intuitive GUI for operational ease and rapid and repeatable topology reconfiguration
