The AresONE-M 800GE Ethernet performance test platform supports data centre interconnect speeds from 10GE to 800GE

Keysight has introduced the AresONE-M 800GE, a comprehensive Layer 1-3 Ethernet performance test platform

Data-intensive applications like artificial intelligence, high-resolution video streaming, the internet of things, 5G, edge computing, and cloud computing are fuelling the need for secure and reliable 800GE network infrastructure. Deploying 800GE into existing network infrastructures creates complex testing challenges for network engineers, who must contend with a variety of new and legacy networking protocols, multiple Ethernet speeds, and a vast array of fibre and copper data centre interconnects (DCI). To properly validate the performance of network infrastructures and network system designs, equipment manufacturers and network operators must have a flexible test platform that can scale to evaluate mixed-speed networks supporting a broad set of connections and network protocols.

The new Keysight AresONE-M 800GE meets this need by delivering the only Layer 1-3 Ethernet networking and infrastructure test solution supporting the most comprehensive DCI speeds from 10GE to 800GE in a single platform. With this range of capabilities, the AresONE-M 800GE enables design engineers and data centre operators to validate networking equipment interoperability and bandwidth performance while supporting the transition to 400GE and 800GE networks with the capability to also test slower, legacy Ethernet speeds.

Ram Periakaruppan, Vice President and General Manager, Network Test & Security Solutions, Keysight, said: “At Keysight, we believe industry standard Ethernet test solutions are an essential and integral part of solving the most complex problems our customers face today. We are extremely proud to introduce the AresONE-M 800GE, the world’s highest density, most feature rich Layer 1-3 800GE test platform that boasts high scale, power efficiency, and performance.”
