Gnodal Selects Spirent for Low-Latency Data Center Switch Fabric Testing
SUNNYVALE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Communications, the leader in testing networks, services and
devices, today announced that Gnodal
TestCenter HyperMetrics dX to showcase the performance of the
GS-Series Family of switches including its latest GS-Series 40G Ethernet
switch. Gnodal conducted low latency performance testing of the GS4008
and GS0072 High Speed Ethernet switches individually as well as part of
a two-tier data center fabric. The test will also be showcased live
during Interop (News - Alert) Las Vegas 2012 at the Gnodal booth (number 434). The
demonstration features the 32-port Spirent HyperMetrics dX, generating
traffic to Gnodal top of rack switches, interconnected with the new
GS-Series 40G Ethernet switch.
"The Gnodal Fabric allows for extremely low latency communication, an
order of magnitude lower than competitive offerings and provides
scalability to thousands of ports," said Bob Fernander, CEO of Gnodal.
"Spirent (News - Alert) has allowed us to put our data center switches to the test and
demonstrate 40GbE performance with sub 285 nanosecond latency within the
GS0072 and also demonstrate the scalability of the Gnodal Fabric vital
in delivering data center applications."
Modern switch and router fabrics span multiple chassis and can be
expanded to build systems supporting hundreds or thousands of ports. The
density and mesh pattern traffic generation capabilities of the Spirent
HyperMetrics dX module can fully load modern multi-terabit backplanes
and fabrics to assess system performance and verify reliability when
deployed in large mission critical environments supporting millions of
user application flows.
"Forwarding performance, low-latency and flow scalability are critical
metrics for data center switch vendors but accurately measuring all
these metrics together is no easy task," said Jurrie van den Breekel (News - Alert),
director of product marketing at Spirent. "We are pleased that Gnodal
has selected Spirent TestCenter to put its solutions to the test, which
builds on our reputation of being the industry's leader in testing
high-speed Ethernet performance at scale with low-latency measurements
for nanosecond accuracy."
