Abstract:
Most networks are built from closed source proprietary solutions and tested with black box testers. Many of operators suffer from limitations regarding feature requests/security fixes/bug fixes/interop issues/undocumented behaviour or troubleshooting methods. Various open source software solutions exist for Linux, which provide the facilities to test a range of generic network devices. Descriptions, comparisons, use cases and real world results are provided for some of the different software tools available; to show how they can be used to profile and verify network devices and functions at layers 2/2.5 (Ethernet/MPLS) in detail. These can help operators better test vendor claims, validate RFPs and catch issues before the equipment is deployed into the live network.
