SCinet 2013 Multi-Technology Network Tested With Spirent Federal

Spirent Federal Systems, a leader in network, services and devices testing, announced today that SCinet, the powerful network that is providing nearly 1 Terabit per second (Gbps) of capacity for the SC13 conference, is using Spirent Federal’s high-speed Ethernet solutions to test the performance of its WAN infrastructure. SCinet is provisioning multiple 10/40/100G Ethernet links that will be showcased during the SC13 Conference on November 17-22, 2013 in Denver, CO. Spirent Federal will be critical in helping to verify these links so that exhibitors can effectively use them for their high performance computing applications and demonstrations.

“Extensive growth in scientific and research applications are driving the adoption of high-speed Ethernet in high performance computing and data center networks,” said Kate Mace, deputy chair of SCinet and project manager, Office of the CIO, Clemson University. “Spirent’s test solutions are playing an important role in helping us validate the readiness of SCinet’s high capacity network that must meet the rigorous demands of our exhibitors and attendees for performance and scalability.”

The SCinet WAN team used Spirent TestCenter software using the Spirent 4-port 10 GbE mX and Spirent 2-port 40/100 GbE fX modules. The test also used Spirent’s SPT-N4U chassis which is designed to lower the cost of testing devices and networks powering the always-on data network. Spirent Federal’s solution was used for line rate qualification and performance testing of several 10/40/100Gbps Ethernet links to national research and education networks.

“It is critical to understand the performance of high-speed Ethernet in a multi-technology environment,” said Paul To, senior product marketing manager at Spirent. “Spirent continues to help advance next generation high performance computing by validating these complex networks and their underlying technologies—with realism, at high scale and at high density.”

Spirent TestCenter along with the latest modules and chassis support testing at bit rates from 10 Mbps to 100 Gbps and beyond. Since accuracy is critical to analyzing traffic at line rate, Spirent’s 100G module has a system clock with a resolution of 2.5 ns, more than twice as fast as required to support Ethernet at 100 Gbps. All ports can be synchronized to provide the accuracy required to evaluate the performance and QoE of services delivered over 40/100G Ethernet.
