Spirent Announces the World’s First 200G Ethernet Test System to Meet the Insatiable Demand for Bandwidth

Spirent Communications Plc (LSE: SPT), an industry leader in test and measurement, today announced the world’s first 200G Ethernet Test System. This additional Ethernet speed is enabled by new 50G electrical interfaces, which allows the deployment of cost-effective 50G links from high performance servers to a new generation of switches and routers. Within these devices, 50G interfaces can easily be combined to build higher speed connections to other systems within the data center or out to the cloud.

According to the IEEE, 200G will be the next area for explosive growth in the Ethernet ecosystem due to the insatiable demand for more bandwidth in mobile devices, high-speed data center servers, internet-enabled entertainment (especially video), cloud computing and social media.

“The 200G Ethernet speed heavily leverages 100G 4x25G NRZ technology now shipping in high volume. Its 4x50G PAM4 architecture re-uses 100G optical packaging and lasers. This enables near-term cost-effective volume deployment,” stated Chris Cole, Vice President of Advanced Development at Finisar.

“Traditionally, combining four electrical interface lanes has been the sweet spot, both technically and economically, for Ethernet technologies,” stated Neil Holmquist, VP, Marketing Cloud and IP at Spirent. “So just as the use of four 25G lanes has been embraced for 100GbE, it is our belief that the use of four 50G lanes will be widely adopted for 200GbE.”

This new generation of switches and routers, based on 50G electrical interfaces, will present additional challenges for equipment vendors and those who deploy their equipment. It will start with ensuring the integrity and stability of the physical link as the traffic scales up to 200Gbps, then will require the validation of a new set of features, functions, performance and scale.

“Spirent’s 200G test capability proves that Spirent is the partner for companies racing to bring their leading edge network technologies to market first,” said Abhitesh Kastuar, General Manager of Spirent’s Cloud and IP Business Unit. “We have a long history of helping our customers get to market faster with the development of generation after generation of Spirent Ethernet testing technologies and we continue to do so with this first-to-market 200G release, as we did with our award-winning 400G solution released back in 2015.”

This new 200G release is compatible with Spirent’s existing chassis and its other Ethernet products. To learn more about Spirent’s 200G test system visit: https://www.spirent.com/Products/TestCenter/Boost/200G

Microsoft Azure Container Services can be used for container deployment in a variety of ways including support for Orchestrators like Kubernetes, Docker Swarm and Mesos. However, the abstraction for app development that support application self-healing, scaling and so on may not be at the right level. Helm and Draft makes this a lot easier. In this primarily demo-driven session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Raghavan "Rags" Srinivas, a Cloud Solutions Architect/Evangelist at Microsoft, wi...
The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated.

Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices – not doing so will be a path to eventual b...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It’s clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Tha...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
