SAMTEST for Cloud and Data Center Interconnect monitoring and benchmarking

Interconnects between data centers as well as for access to cloud and data center services require high quality reliable links.

Live monitoring of interconnects should ensure that downtime is minimized. Benchmarking and trouble-shooting such interconnects using traditional test tools using manual testing is time-consuming and error prone.

SAMTEST has been designed keeping these challenges in view and delivers substantial reduction in time and effort in performing these tasks with ease.

SAMTEST for Data Center & Cloud Interconnect monitoring

SAMTEST provides standards aligned IP, MPLS and Carrier Ethernet service performance monitoring. SAMTEST active performance monitoring (APM) is industry’s first MEF 35.1 compliant tool for service assurance.

SAMTEST for Data Center Interconnect benchmarking and monitoring

Interconnects between data centers or to provide access to cloud and data center services require high quality and reliable links and are most commonly being deployed using Carrier Ethernet 2.0.

Benchmarking and trouble-shooting such interconnects using traditional test tools means manual testing that is time-consuming and error prone. And often, lack of expertise on could be a bottleneck when diagnosing failures.

SAMTEST has been designed keeping these challenges in view and delivers substantial reduction in time and effort in performing these tasks with ease.
