spirent communications plc (SPT) Key Developments

Spirent Communications Unveils SpirentAttero 100G

Spirent Communications unveiled SpirentAttero 100G, the first 100GbE impairment test solution for verification of high speed Ethernet systems and networks. The 100GbE impairment generator is designed to allow equipment manufacturers and service providers to emulate a network or network elements with precision, accuracy and repeatability. This innovative high speed test solution can be used to emulate propagation, routing, switching and buffering delays. Network latency or delay can dramatically reduce throughput and affect high speed links carrying applications such as real-time gaming, streaming video, and financial trading transactions resulting in disgruntled consumers and adverse business impact. Spirent Attero 100G can emulate the equivalent of more than 50,000 km of fiber at 100 Gb/s and assess the impact of network congestion, queuing issues or multi-path fading on a device’s performance.

SGS Selects Spirent Communications to Expand Operator Acceptance Testing Capabilities for LTE Networks

Spirent Communications plc announced that SGS has enhanced the testing capabilities it offers its customers by using the Spirent 8100 LTE solution with support for hVoLTE, Voice over IP (VoIP), Video Telephony, and Carrier Aggregation. These critical test areas assess the audio, video, signaling, and data throughput performance of mobile devices to ensure they meet the complex carrier requirements of next-generation LTE networks. Spirent’s 8100 LTE solution addresses the heightened complexities in testing mobile device performance to ensure seamless interoperability across all these new technologies.

Spirent Enables Prediction and Prevention of Signaling Storm Outages with Comprehensive Diameter Testing

Spirent Communications introduced Spirent Landslide Diameter, a comprehensive solution that tests signaling protocols at scale so carriers can ensure efficient and optimized Diameter services. Diameter is the signaling method used for authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) in fixed broadband, 3G and 4G/LTE networks. Surges or storms, congestion, service degradation, and inter-carrier issues can lead to slow or dropped connections, lost billing data, dissatisfied customers, and in the worst case network wide outages. To eliminate these issues, carriers and their eco-system providers must ensure their Diameter networks are optimized and aligned with the rollouts of new services and connected devices. Landslide Diameter lets carriers and their vendors emulate specific Diameter applications to test specific nodes or test the network from end-to-end to ensure that the management and monetization functions operate at extreme scale. The test system can be used to simulate real-world traffic scenarios or call models at scale so carriers can see what happens on a node-by-node basis. The call models can be adapted to test the impact new services and devices will have on the control network. These tests remove the guesswork out of predicting signaling traffic loads so they can adequately and effectively architect their networks. Carriers and vendors worldwide use Spirent Landslide in the design, optimization, monetization, and maintenance of their broadband and mobile network. Landslide Diameter is a key component of Spirent Landslide, a suite of advanced test tools for mobile networks and services that emulates millions of mobile subscribers simultaneously accessing wireless networks using various mobile devices. With Landslide, carriers can employ a single, integrated platform to fully test and measure network performance 'end-to-end' of the entire mobile and Wi-Fi ecosystem. The suite can be used to validate mobile equipment vendors' claims as well as test and optimize network design while checking the impact of changes made to the underlying network architecture and services.
