High-performance Ethernet testing in an unmanned Data Centre
Live Data Centre of the Future
Securing the integrity of data stored in data centres is critical. It’s so important that most data centre operators back up data to other data centres via high-performance network links. To maintain the performance of those connections and to verify SLAs, a data centre must frequently perform bit-error-rate (BER) tests on Ethernet line rates up to 100G and beyond, as well as OTN, CWDM, or DWDM circuits. The problem is that many data centres have very few, if any, technicians on-site to run tests ensuring the quality of connections. This presentation will illustrate these test cases and how test solutions that’s optimized for remote, un-manned testing with a rack-mounted design and remote management functionality helps to solve these requirements.
