Spirent simplifies testing for public and hybrid clouds

Sept. 30, 2020
Spirent's TestCenter Virtual now delivers new network functions and emulation capabilities via the AWS Marketplace. The platform accelerates the migration of applications and services from private infrastructure to public and hybrid clouds.

Spirent Communications, a provider of test, measurement, assurance and analytics platforms for next-generation communications devices and networks, has announced the availability of its Spirent TestCenter Virtual in the AWS Marketplace.

The company says the cloud-enabled offering of one of its flagship test solutions helps reduce testing complexity for public and hybrid clouds by accelerating the development, testing, and deployment cycles for network services and applications that run on this diversified ecosystem. 

Per Spirent: "For enterprises, TestCenter Virtual is accelerating the migration of applications and services from private infrastructure to public and hybrid clouds, while assuring network performance through the ability to run continuous validation and regression in the cloud. It also helps ensure scalability, reliability, and performance of SD-WAN infrastructure and mission-critical applications moving from enterprise premises to the cloud by augmenting traditional infrastructure testing and assurance techniques with enhanced methodologies to address new service and application layer challenges." 

Himanshu Shah, VP of Engineering at Alkira, asserts, “We leverage TestCenter Virtual in AWS to assure control plane and data plane performance of our flagship solution Alkira CSX (Cloud Services Exchange). Spirent’s virtual solution helps accelerate our performance testing cycles, enabling us to quickly and efficiently deliver the unified multi-cloud network with an integrated network services marketplace that our customers demand.” 

As observed by a Spirent press statement: 

Network equipment manufacturers and cloud service providers are leveraging continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) in AWS for their product and service verification. Spirent TestCenter Virtual helps accelerate product verification through an improved CI/CD process. The application simplifies the verification of network services that run on AWS and private hybrid clouds through its ability to run endpoints in both domains simultaneously and by enabling the onboarding of unique new network functions such as network protocol emulation. 

“TestCenter Virtual in AWS helps customers to quickly and efficiently start assuring performance of their networked services in complex topologies spanning public, private clouds and physical environment,” concludes Prashant Gupta, Senior Product Manager at Spirent. “With the powerful combination of accelerated testing cycles, and optimized application and network performance, scale and resiliency through continuous regression and validation capabilities, it’s an invaluable tool for developers looking to reduce time to market and ensure performance of cloud applications in a multitude of real-world scenarios.”
