Keysight Technologies, Inc. announced the release of the UHD100T32
100 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) test system, the industry's first test system purpose-built to help data center operators and network equipment manufacturers meet the density and cost-per-bit challenges of validating 100GE devices and networks.
With mass deployment in modern data centers, 100GE technologies have matured. Cloud service providers, communications service providers and network equipment manufacturers are now challenged with density and cost pressures on their test infrastructure. This typically leads to a compromise in testing cycles and the use of test systems and methodologies that don't allow for comprehensive quality control.
Keysight's new UHD100T32 test system, co-developed with Barefoot Networks, an Intel company, is purpose-built to meet the requirements of the modern networking infrastructure ecosystem. In a space-saving 1U box, users get the power of 3.2 Tbps of line-rate test traffic from 32 ports of 100GE, a requirement to validate the performance of ultra-high-density devices like those found in today's data centers and in manufacturing use cases for full box tests in production lines.
