Spirent C1

With support for line-rates 10GE, 5GE, 2.5GE, 1GE and 100M test ports and the complete suite of Spirent test solutions, the C1 offers the power of a professional test tool.


Solution Overview

Test a network or device with a solution that reproduces anything less than a realistic environment and you risk slower product development and deployment, and lower network service quality. Spirent C1 minimizes your risk by mirroring actual network scenarios and traffic patterns so networks, services and individual network elements can be quickly validated.

The C1 lowers the barrier to entry and enables companies of all sizes to test smarter and optimize their test investment by leveraging industry leading test capabilities Spirent offers. The Spirent C1 supports Spirent TestCenter™, Avalanche Commander™, and Spirent CyberFlood™.

Whether you are a network engineer, manufacturing production line technician, product developer, or systems engineer, Spirent will empower you to better manage your solutions and deliver on the promise of next-generation services.


The C1 is an ideal fit for:

  • Network element engineering development, design and test groups requiring physical access to a test port on the workbench
  • Network equipment manufacturers doing burn-in and production line tests requiring low port count and compactness
  • Technical and field marketing groups needing a portable test solution
  • Network engineers and technicians performing predeployment testing and troubleshooting and service rollout testing
  • University computer science departments and technical training organizations requiring a hands-on test tool
