Innovations like SoftwareDefined Networking (SDN) offer
unprecedented flexibility and
greater responsiveness. However for
effective SDN deployment, Service
Providers, Data Center Operators,
and Network Admins are faced with
several challenges, including testing
of cloud-level traffic via OpenFlow
switches without compromising
network visibility and control.
Spirent TestCenter™ 3D Topology Suite is the industry-leading solution that allows customers to
time. Easily displaying several thousand switches in the single view helps to create context-aware

performance of SDN under test
identifying areas of congestion across entire network topologies. This ultimately results in more
ƒƒ Graphical 3D visualization of the
Switches attached to the SDN

visualize and optimize the performance of new cloud-enabled network services and innovations
like SDN. Spirent TestCenter leverages Real Status Hyperglance to provide the full-scale 360°
topology visualization with interactive controls graphical user interface to optimize your SDN and
cloud environments end-to-end.
3D Topology Suite provides an interactive, 360° view of complex network topologies under test.
This allows test engineers to see what they are testing at a glance versus lack understanding of
what is actually under test. It also helps detect anomalies and saves debugging time on issues
that could be simply resolved by viewing the entire topology and its areas of congestion in realnetwork controls and gives users the ability to better scale a view of the network while easily
successful SDN deployments.
When it comes to testing networks in most complex topologies, there’s never been anything like
Spirent 3D topology Suite to easily visualize, monitor, and tune how the network infrastructure
performs at full scale and in real-time, prior to deployment. Spirent TestCenter generates East-West
and South bound traffic for thousands of flows through OpenFlow Switches, while dynamically
displaying a 3D topology of the network and flows from any zoom-level.
