Packet Performance and the Cloud: The Importance of Validation Testing
Date / Time: Wednesday, December 15, 2021, 12:00 p.m. New York / 5:00 p.m London
The increase in cloud routing services and applications is forcing network operators to re-evaluate their infrastructure decisions as they race to keep up with bandwidth demands. For core and peering use case deployments, it requires the high packet performance, flexible filters and inherent security that silicon-based platforms can achieve. But is your router actually performing at the level is claims to be?
In this session you will hear from top industry execs and learn how benchmark tests were carried out on the industry's leading core and peering routers. Attendees will understand the limitations of not meeting these new service-level agreements and how customers can benefit now and in the future.
Our conversation will cover:
What's required in silicon for today's modern 400G-based core and peering networks
How PTX uniquely fits those needs
How the results impact customers
