Cloud Use Case
The Data-lab within this large US bank gets network modeling/testing requests from customers that must be responded to quickly. Typically, they create a network topology/simulation and then send customer application traffic across it to assess performance. The Bank also uses the Calnex Network Emulator to exercise/stress their Cisco network infrastructure by “working around” the forwarding table by using impairments to look at the impact on network reconvergence performance.
The Data-lab benefits from reduced test setup time in creating the correct network topologies. Average test-duration is 72 hours, and voice tests can run up to 5 weeks.
Reduced test setup time, faster customer responses and more realistic testing will save the Bank at least $1M per year.
