As network engineers have come to expect from leaders in the networking space, both Cisco and NVT Phybridge provide exceptional results providing the performance that businesses world-wide rely on to power their services.
The number of packets a network can send through itself at any one time
Measured in bits over time ie. Kbps, mbps
Ie. Number of cars that can fit on a road over a given time
Throughput Results Summary
At both the maximum distances for each switch, we see throughput levels exactly as indicated by the switch performance specifications. You get all the speed you pay for.
FRAME Loss Test
What is Frame loss?
The number of packets that get lost over a given cable in a network. Can be affected by internal factor such as network performance, and overall load; or external factors like interference or noise on the lines
Often measured by percentage of frames lost
Frame Loss Results Summary
On both switches, we see minimal frame loss. Neither switch is breaking a sweat to provide the
Frame Loss Rate (%) vs Frame Size (bytes)
What is Latency?
The time it a takes a packet to get through a network
Measured in time (often milliseconds) ie. 2ms
Ie. The speed a car can travel on a road at a given time
Latency Results Summary
To ensure the highest quality of service, latency on both switches is minimal. This is more crucial for real time applications like voice calls or video conferencing and collaboration.
Latency vs Frame Size (bytes)
What is Latency?
The changes in packet speed over time, causing data bunching. Large amounts of jitter often cause frame loss.
Jitter Results Summary
Both Cisco and NVT Phybridge switches show minimum delay variance giving your traffic exceptional quality of service characteristics for real time applications to work at their very best.
Jitter (uS) vs Frame Size (bytes)
What is Back-to-Back?
Also known as a burst test, it tests the networks ability to overcome variances in traffic load at any given time.
Back-To-Back Results Summary
Both switch manufacturers can sustain data bursts to ensure that even the largest burst does not cause frame loss or service degradation.
