Hinx are true Multi-Vendor Specialists
Vendor comparisons at the Provider core layer
June 2005 -- Hinx gain valuable experience with Avici, Cisco and Juniper core routers testing for a major UK Service Provider.
The Cisco CRS-1 has some competition with the Juniper T640 and the uniquely modular Avici platform. Hinx carried out vendor testing on all aspects of the core routers, testing ISIS scalability, MPLS forwarding, security, overall performance, RSVP-TE setup rates, as well as helping to develop provisioning tools for a large "full mesh" of RSVP tunnels across the Provider core.
Paul Hine, Managing Director at Hinx said, "Our independence was key in providing an objective view of the vendors' equipment.
The outcome is as yet unreleased, but the testing revealed strengths and weaknesses in all parties, often these were surprising. It was particularly good to see the support functions in action as we pushed the boundaries of the equipment's hardware and software capabilities."
Hinx continue to work closely with all 3 vendors and offer vendor appraisal as a service in its' own right.
