Cloud and Data Center Interconnect Monitoring and Benchmarking

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 MEF 3.0,  CE 2.0., etc.

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.

SAMTEST for Cloud & Data Center Interconnect monitoring

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

SAMTEST supports Cloud & Data Center Interconnect benchmarking with automated test libraries for:

  • CE 2.0 Carrier Ethernet testing based on MEF 3.0 and CE 2.0 for comprehensive service verification including service attributes and bandwidth profile (as per MEF 10.3) and SLAs
  • IP and Carrier Ethernet and testing based on ITU-T Y.1564 and RFC 2544 methodologies
  • TCP benchmarking (RFC 6349), UDP benchmarking
  • HTTP, VoIP and video on demand (VoD) testing
