BEIJING -- Spirent Communications, the leader in testing networks, services and devices, today announced that Huawei selected Spirent TestCenter to verify the performance of the newly launched CloudEngine 12800 series data center switches. This test of 384 ports of 10G Ethernet was conducted at massive scale under the most stressful yet realistic conditions, representing China’s first highest port density and TRILL and test.

Huawei launched the CloudEngine data center switches earlier this year with 48 Tbps of single-frame switching capacity and support for high-density switching of 1/10/40/100 G Ethernet interfaces as well as virtualization and computing, storage and network convergence. Huawei used Spirent solutions to test its data center switches’ capability to offer stable, reliable and secure services to help customers build scalable, virtualized and converged data center fabric architectures.

Huawei used Spirent TestCenter to conduct high-performance testing of its CloudEngine 12808 to determine that it delivered on key performance metrics. The test used full mesh traffic across 384 ports of 10G Ethernet to showcase the CE12808 switch’s zero packet loss at line rate forwarding, and support for TRILL. Huawei also leveraged Spirent TestCenter and Spirent iTest for a green test to highlight low power consumption of the CE12808 switch. The results allow Huawei to confidently address the scalability, performance and latency needs of increasingly large data centers and cloud-based services.
