Module families

dX3—Data density

Industry highest density 400/200GbE and quint-speed 100/50/40/25/10G Ethernet performance test modules. These modules are designed to verify the highest scale cloud data center fabrics without breaking the testing budget.

pX3—Protocol scale

These modules focus on high density supporting 400/200/100/50G and 100/50/40/25/10G versions with improved higher control and data plane scale, ideal choice for customers requiring both high density and improved performance.

fX3—Flexible functionality

These optional SEVEN-speed 100/50/40/25/10G Ethernet 2-port test modules including support for 16/32G Fibre Channel are the right mix of port density, broad feature set and powerful emulation capabilities, ideal for testing next-gen infrastructure for service providers, cloud data centers or large enterprises. 4-port quint speed version also available.

mX3—Multiprotocol performance

Highest performing quint-speed 100/50/40/25/10G Ethernet emulation platform ensuring high scale simultaneously across multiple protocols, designed to realistically emulate entire cities for core network and converged multi-play devices and services.

2019 Best of Interop Tokyo

Spirent PX3/DX3 400G 1U Appliance received Best of ShowNet Grand Prize and Best of Show Special Prize Awards at Interop Tokyo 2019, in a special recognition of Spirent’s commitment to continually setting the standard for high density testing of ultra-high-scale, next-generation enabled, multi-terabit routers and switches.

2018 Best of Interop Tokyo

Spirent 400G Ethernet Test Platform received Best of Show Award at Interop Tokyo 2018. Developed to address IEEE and MSA standards as they evolve, it supports 400/200/100/50GbE on a single test module with support for QSFP-DD, OSFP, and CFP8 form factors. Ideal for companies looking to launch products and services dependent on emerging high-speed, high-density technologies.

400G Solution for next-gen network testing

Spirent pX3 400G Appliance is the world’s highest density QSFP-DD tester, designed to validate forwarding performance and quality of service of ultra-high-scale, next-generation enabled, multi-terabit routers and switches – all contained in a single rack space.

Industry's First ITU-T G.mtn-ready test solution

Spirent FlexE-100 test solution is the industry’s most feature rich FlexE-based network slicing test solution, designed to meet the most demanding 5G requirements for network slicing, ultra-low latency and high availability.

High-density FlexE and traditional Ethernet testing

Spirent’s new pX3 Flexible Ethernet solution is the world’s highest density FlexE 100GBASE-R PHY tester, designed for validating next generation Flexible Ethernet supported routers and data center fabrics.

Spirent N12U chassis

Spirent’s new mainframe chassis design is optimized with the latest hardware and software technology to scale to the highest port counts, +400G and Terabit Ethernet test traffic rates, and the power capacity needed to support the inter-slot communication bandwidth requirements of the next generation of high-performance test modules.

Spirent N4U chassis

Spirent’s compact chassis supports a variety of environments where testing requires equipment to be relocated. It supports multi-user functional testing and chassis chaining where higher density is required but a mainframe N12U is not available.

MX2 Wi-Fi performance

MX2 Wi-Fi test module can be used to perform 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi performance testing along with weather radar signal emulation for DFS testing. This solution provides the Wi-Fi performance testing metrics required by NEMs and SPs to reliably validate their Wi-Fi infrastructure equipment and services.
