Hi all,

We did an experiment about a year ago setting up T-Rex to do switch/ router reviews. It was good, but scaling to 10G and beyond was getting more expensive.

I am now thinking about just buying a used Spirent.

Seems like that is a pretty big domain area. Do we have anyone on STH familiar with the licensing/ models of these things? I do not want to get something that ends up being useless. Still, if we could get a decently priced 1G/10G testing solution today, that would actually be a big win.

If anyone can help navigate, it would be much appreciated.

Regards,
Patrick

OK. So I bought a 2017 era C100 for 10GbE testing. We shall see how this goes.

Pretty cool looking actually. Xeon E5-2687W's!
