Spirent Communications has introduced what it claims as the world’s first 8-port 1U-high rack mountable solution for testing 400/200/100/50 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE). Spirent claims that the new pX3 400G Appliance is the world’s highest density QSFP-DD tester, designed to validate the 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.

A single pX3 400G appliance offers 8 ports and up to 255 pX3 units can be interconnected to provide synchronized timing for a total of 2,040 ports. These appliances will interoperate with and complement Spirent’s extensive high speed Ethernet test modules and chassis offerings. The new pX3 400G Appliance incorporates Spirent’s 

Spirent has a long history of helping its customers get to market faster with the continued development of high speed Ethernet testing technologies, illustrated by its award-winning 400G solution released back in 2015.

This latest integrated, scalable appliance will enable major chipset manufacturers, network equipment manufacturers and service providers to be ready for the next wave of speeds to meet customer demands. In addition, Spirent expects to continue this standard of high port density in future releases, giving customers a higher return on investment and smaller rackspace footprint.
