Barefoot Networks builds high-speed programmable networking devices. Our team is building a configurable network traffic tester that can handle up to 6.4Tbps of trafficenough for every student at the Claremont Colleges to simultaneously stream 200 high-definition movies. The tester will send varying traffic patterns to the device under test, which will immediately forward the packets back to the tester. The tester will analyze packet delay, sequencing, and loss, and will gather and report relevant statistics.
