Spirent N11U


The Spirent SPT-N11U mainframe chassis is the foundation for Spirent’s new 10GbE, 40GbE and 100GbE test modules. By optimizing the design with the latest hardware and software technology, the SPT-N11U lowers the cost of testing the devices and networks powering the always-on data network.

The SPT-N11U simultaneously scales to the highest port counts and test traffic rates in the industry while incorporating innovative time- and money-saving capabilities such as: built-in touchscreen administration, intelligent power and fan control, and fast booting and system firmware upgrades.With its efficient architecture, the SPT-N11U supports a variety of environments from multi-user functional testing all the way up to multi-chassis switch fabric and core-router stress testing. A single chassis can scale to nearly 10 terabits of data traffic – more than double that of the competition—supporting enough protocol scale to push any modern router architecture beyond its limits.Features & Benefits• Less rack space and power than equivalent competing systems—Intelligent power and fan control—Scales to nearly 10 terabits of cloud traffic per second—Supports up to 144 40G ports, 576 10G ports, or 96 100G Ethernet ports per chassis• Investment protection for existing hardware and future technologies—Fully backward compatible with existing Spirent HyperMetrics and HyperMetrics NEXT test modules*—Does not require learning new UIs or APIs—400G Ethernet ready• Measurement reliability and accuracy—Best-in-class timing precision and synchronization (ten times better than the nearest competition) for large-scale tests and site to-site latency/jitter measurements—Automatic calibration for chassis-to-chassis synchronization• Innovative design—Built-in touchscreen for real-time chassis status and administration—4x times faster boot time and 3x times faster firmware upgrades than previous systems—Built-in timing synchronization capability including 1588v2 connector—Client software download from the chassis via Web browser
