Spirent C100-S3-MP

The C100-S3-MP for CyberFlood and Avalanche solution provides options from 1G to >100G of capacity, application performance testing for network devices and solutions, Web application infrastructures and media services, ensuring Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE).



In today’s digital world, it’s essential that the performance of content aware networks and Web applications are carefully tested to ensure that business transactions and communication are not impacted. The C100-S3-MP is a powerful Layer 4-7 stateful traffic performance solution that is capable of high throughput testing of highstrength bulk encrypted hyper-realistic traffic. Users now have the ability to test devices to their limits at line rate, simulating daily traffic to understand the impact under worst case scenarios.

Performance and Flexibility

The C100-S3-MP is available in multiple configuration options: 1G, 10G, 25G, 40G, 50G and 100G of Layer 4-7 application traffic. Testers are able to specify load variables and easily create tests with mixed traffic profiles emulating real-world network scenarios. With the available SSL/TLS acceleration module, the C100-S3-MP
can meet today’s most demanding test needs for encrypted traffic with high strength ciphers at massive scale

Features & Benefits
