Spirent DX3-400G 2-Port Seven-Speed Test Module
EIA 19” rack compatible, 12RU high, front or mid-rack mounting

The Spirent SPT-N12U Mainframe Chassis is the foundation for Spirent’s next-generation of 10GbE, 40GbE, 100GbE, and 400GbE test modules. By optimizing the design with the latest hardware and software technology, the SPT-N12U lowers the cost of testing the devices and networks powering the always-on data network.

The SPT-N12U simultaneously scales to the highest port counts and test traffic rates in the industry while incorporating innovative time- and money-saving capabilities such as: intelligent power and fan control, and fast booting and system firmware upgrades.

With its efficient architecture, the SPT-N12U supports a variety of environments from multi-user functional testing all the way up to multi-chassis switch fabric and core-router stress testing. A single chassis can scale to over 14 terabits of data traffic — more than double that of the competition—supporting enough protocol scale to push any modern router architecture beyond its limits.
