Publication date:   23 January 2017

Abstract:

Today’s enterprises, service providers, and government agencies are being tasked to improve the efficiency of their network, application, and security test labs. Sophisticated tools are required for various test scenarios; however these tools are expensive and often in short supply in large organizations where assets are shared.

To help optimize tools and infrastructure, the nGenius® 3900 Series Packet Flow Switch from NETSCOUT® is a modular, chassis-based switch architecture, that supports high-density 1GbE, 10GbE, and 40GbE. NETSCOUT's Test Optimization product line provides specialized hardware and software to meet requirements that are unique to test labs. NETSCOUT S-Blade Pro is a low latency blade that works in conjunction with NETSCOUT TestStream Management Software to provide an easy-to-use, multi-function environment for Layer 1 switching. Additionally, S-Blade Pro provides bandwidth-based utilization statistics for all ports.

NETSCOUT commissioned Tolly to evaluate the Layer 1 functionality of the NETSCOUT S-Blade Pro in both 10GbE and 40GbE network topologies evaluating the latency across a full range of RFC 2544 frame sizes as well as with jumbo frames and utilization statistics. The S-Blade Pro delivered ultralow latency at every frame size tested.
