COPENHAGEN, Denmark and CRAWLEY, United Kingdom, June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Napatech (OSE: NAPA), the world's leading supplier of accelerators for network management and security applications, and Spirent Communications, the leader in testing solutions for networks, devices and services, today announced they will showcase a live demonstration of network test traffic capture with zero packet loss using Napatech's 100 Gbps accelerator at Interop Tokyo.

  • Adoption of 100 Gbps connections in the core of the network is being driven by high-bandwidth applications such as video on demand and high-performance computing, as well as server virtualization and high-speed applications in data centers.
  • The live demonstration will show the Napatech NT100E3-1-PTP accelerator reliably capturing a 100 Gbps test traffic generated by Spirent TestCenter software on Spirent SPT-N4U with bursts at maximum transmission rate with zero packet loss.
  • The demonstration uses the following configuration:
    • Dell PowerEdge R720 server
    • Two Napatech PCI-SIG® compliant NT100E3-1-PTP accelerators
    • Spirent TestCenter, SPT-N4U chassis
    • Sumitomo 100GBASE-LR4 CFP4 optical transceiver modules
  • Napatech will debut the 100 Gbps demo at Interop Tokyo at booth 6C17 from June 11-13.

Henrik Brill Jensen, CEO, Napatech, said:
"As we enter the 100G era, network equipment manufacturers will need products that can help them stay one step ahead of the data growth curve. In 100 Gbps network analysis, features such as load distribution and slicing inside GTP tunnels will be crucial, both to accelerate application performance and to reduce the amount of data processed by the server. Our 100 Gbps accelerator offers these features, as well as a way to reliably increase performance of network management and security applications. Napatech is committed to producing high performance and low risk solutions that enable faster time-to-market for our customers."

Angus Robertson, Vice President of Segment Marketing, Spirent, said:
"Bandwidth intensive applications are driving 100G Ethernet to the network edge. At these speeds it is difficult to ensure the accuracy of even basic tests such as Layer 2 performance benchmarking. With a system clock resolution of 2.5 ns, which is twice as fast as required to support Ethernet at 100 Gbps, Spirent solutions provide the accuracy required to evaluate the performance and QoE of services delivered over 100G Ethernet. Spirent helps data center operators meet the extreme challenges of validating the performance and scalability of cloud applications and inter-cloud workload migrations."
