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 through 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 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 for Cloud & Data Center Interconnect benchmarking

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

  • CE 2.0 Carrier Ethernet testing based on MEF CE 2.0 for comprehensive service verification including service attributes and bandwidth profile (as per MEF 10.2) 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
