Service testing, diagnostics and assurance for NFV based Ethernet/IP Services

Telcos are developing the next-generation of Ethernet and IP services based on SDN, NFV and Cloud infrastructure to increase service agility and reduce costs. However, traditional hardware-based testing and visibility solutions are incapable of providing the required level of visibility when utilizing virtual network functions (VNFs). Since NFV-based network services are updated in real-time, the test solution should allow updating test functions in real-time. Thus, there is a rising need for a new breed of testing and visibility solutions for NFV networks to address these requirements.

In this regard, the ETSI MANO architecture has been standardizing test functions as virtual test agents (VTAs), to facilitate complete testing and visibility of NFV networks.

This webinar will highlight the role of VTAs in service activation testing and assurance in ETSI MANO architecture and cover some of the key considerations for VTAs to provide end-to-end service assurance.
What will be covered in this webinar?
Need for virtual test agent (test function as VNF) in NFV-based networks.
ETSI MANO definitions and key considerations for virtual test agents.
Veryx SAMTEST NFV solution for service assurance and diagnostics.

Who should attend?
Network Architecture teams and teams currently involved in proof-of-concepts of NFV-based architecture from Telecom Service Provider organizations.
Network Engineering teams exploring virtualized testing and visibility tools.
Service Activation teams and Network operations teams involved in ensuring SLAs on NFV deployments.
Application providers and System integrators exploring NFV ecosystem.
Engineering teams of Equipment vendors who are developing network platforms supporting virtualization and third party virtual applications.

  • Parallel Wireless Unified 2G/3G/4G/5G Open vRAN Recorded: Mar 26 2019 51 mins
    Zahid Ghadialy, Sr. Dir., Strategic Mktg and 3G/4G Blogger and Babak Jafarian, Dir, Strategic Business Communications
    The telecoms industry is capital intensive, so every dollar and every cent spent on new infrastructure needs to be accounted for. The biggest expense for mobile operators has always been the RAN, accounting for around 60 % of CAPEX (and 65 % of OPEX). Older (2G, 3G) technologies are becoming more expensive to maintain alongside with 4G and soon 5G. The Open Compute model of the data center has the potential to help operators to move away from proprietary hardware to a virtualized network architecture. Some of TIP’s (Telecom Infrastructure Project) initiatives by Facebook) highest-profile activities are aimed specifically at the RAN, where the proprietary nature of several interfaces has stopped operators from using more than one vendor. The software-based approach for older Gs is unheard of where by virtue of the original design, it’s impossible to reconfigure legacy 2G and 3G networks to support newer communications standards such as 4G, and eventually 5G. In this webinar learn how Parallel Wireless Open RAN technology, designed on x86 across baseband processing platform, radio hardware, and radio and core software, simplifies MNOs business models to support ALL current, present, and future Gs for a better service to the end users at much lower cost. We will present recent case studies from TIP Summit from operators like Telefonica, MTN and Vodafone. www.parallelwireless.com
