Spirent C200 Appliance

 The C200 appliance for CyberFlood and Avalanche provides the industry’s highest performance and capacity with multi-speed support for 10G, 25G, 40G, 50G, and 100G in a slim-line 1U form factor.


Application Performance Testing Solutions

The C200 appliance for CyberFlood and Avalanche provides the industry’s highest performance and capacity with multi-speed support for 10G, 25G, 40G, 50G, and 100G in a slim-line 1U form factor.

Users can test the performance limits of network devices, Web applications and media services, ensuring Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) for their customers. The C200 is compatible with both CyberFlood and Avalanche testing solutions, giving you the most versatility for application performance testing.

Built-in CyberFlood

The C200 comes with a built-in CyberFlood controller. Within minutes from unpacking, users can be up and running tests with the powerful, web-based CyberFlood solution, without the need for additional hosting platforms.

Performance and Flexibility

The C200’s 4 x QSFP28 interfaces provide connectivity for 10G, 25G, 40G, 50G, and 100G Layer 4-7 application traffic. Users can specify load variables and easily create tests with mixed traffic profiles, emulating real-world network scenarios. With builtin advanced cryptographic acceleration technologies, the C200 can meet today’s and the future’s most demanding test needs for encrypted traffic with high strength ciphers at massive scale.

Features & Benefits

  • >100Gbps Line Rate Stateful Traffic—Provides the capability to generate over 100Gbps of line rate stateful Layer 4-7 traffic. Each C200 supports high density 16 x 10G interfaces and up to 4 x 40G or 4 x 100G interfaces.
  • Flexible Software Options—The C200 is compatible with CyberFlood providing a web-based, easy-to-use yet powerful application with Avalanche for advanced directed one-ended and two- ended testing.
  • Throughput with Mixed Traffic—Create and execute tests with preconfigured traffic mixes to achieve high throughput HTTPS/TLS encryption, or easily create your own mixes from a database of tens of thousands of application scenarios. Create tests that use next generation web protocols, including the industry’s only full support for HTTP/3.
  • Network Devices Performance Testing—Provides performance and capacity testing on a variety of network devices including: Firewall, Application Firewall, Load Balancer, SD-WAN, SASE, Cache, Proxy, URL Filter, Content Filter, Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Reverse-Proxy, SSL Accelerator, HTTP/HTTPS Accelerator, WAN Accelerators, SMTP Relay, IDS/IPS, and IPsec VPN Gateway.
  • Application Server Performance Testing—Validates the performance of several types of real services including: Web, CIFS, Application Services, eMail, DHCP, FTP, DNS,
    RTSP/ RTP QuickTime Streaming, Multicast, RTMP, HTTP ABR, and more.
  • Performance Operation Modes—Easily change the C200 mode of operation to adjust CPU and memory allocation behind test interfaces providing maximum flexibility for a variety of performance and use case options.
  • Reliability Testing—Perform long duration soak tests with the TestCloud application load to ensure solutions work at high capacity for long periods of time.
  • VPN Testing—Validate IPSec and SSL VPN capacities including tunnel setup, maximum tunnels, and data rates over encrypted tunnel for remote access and site to site use cases.
  • Automatic Goal Seeking—Determine maximum capabilities of a device with minimal user interaction.
  • Realistic Web Testing—Use web-capture capabilities to import and replay recorded sessions of complex website interactions and traffic to validate performance and comprehensive application policies.
