Results confirm the high performance required to successfully deploy complex new technologies and reliable high-speed networks that meet future demands
BEIJING –(Business Wire) —#5G— Spirent Communications (LON: SPT), a leading provider of test and assurance solutions for next-generation equipment and networks, supported H3C to successfully complete the industry’s first large-scale high-density 800G Ethernet test (up to 64 800G port). The test results verified the reliability and high performance of H3C 800G CPO silicon photonic switch series H3C S9827.
As artificial intelligence-generated content (AIGC) drives a new wave of network transformation, the resulting large-scale AI workloads require exchanging data between tens of thousands of servers and performing billions of parallel calculations for massive data training . Growing demands for computing power are driving new requirements for high-quality network connections. With 800G and 1.6T expected to become the standard for large-scale training in the future, the high performance of next-generation switches is critical to overall network efficiency and performance. responding speed.
Recent testing utilized the Spirent TestCenter 800G B2 device, the industry’s first high-density 800G OSFP and QSFP-DD test platform. B2 is committed to accelerating time to market for 800G infrastructure development and adoption, providing customers with the flexibility to deploy native testbeds using real networks, regardless of interconnect strategy. B2 test solutions deliver the density, flexibility and performance features needed to validate next-generation switches, routers, chipsets and data center fabrics. B2 supports multi-rate interconnects to switches via cable, fiber, and other interconnects and can be tested against baseline performance and scale standards.
The H3C S9827 series is a new generation of 800G data center switches based on CPO silicon photonics technology. Test results show that the total switching capacity is as high as 51.2T, and all 64 ports achieve 100% line-speed forwarding under different traffic conditions. The transmission rate of each port reaches 800Gbps. The integrated CPO silicon photonics technology fully meets the high throughput requirements of intelligent computing networks, ensuring that it is suitable for AIGC clusters and other high-performance data center core switching and related applications, helping to release the best performance . Computing power in the AIGC era.
“We are pleased to support H3C in validating multiple breakthrough technology solutions for 800G Ethernet,” said Andrew Liu, vice president of sales for Spirent Greater China. “We have developed a comprehensive end-to-end 800G test suite to fully leverage Decades of experience in Ethernet testing. This latest front-facing 800G test validates the reliability and high performance of the H3C 800G CPO silicon photonic switch series H3C S9827 and will help ensure the successful deployment of this complex new technology and reliable high-speed networks to meet future demands. “
“With the support of CPO technology, 800G high-performance switches will provide higher network capacity for cutting-edge applications such as AIGC and large-scale model training, paving the way for further improvements in computing cluster scale and computing power.” H3C Network Product Line Vice President said Li Yutao, president and general manager of the switch product line. This joint test fully reflects the new H3C’s leading technical strength in the field of digital infrastructure. In the future, H3C will also help customers in various industries comprehensively improve Ethernet performance and unleash the full potential of computing power. “
