Communications networks are being virtualized because virtualization provides remarkable benefits. Virtualization complicates operations, however. The responsibility for dealing with many of those complications falls on test & measurement companies.
In this one-hour discussion, four leading T&M companies will not only identify the hidden pitfalls of virtualization, but talk about some of the best ways to side-step them, including:
- How virtualization increases the importance of highly sophisticated T&M equipment for installation and maintenance
- Key testing developments within ETSI and other industry organizations including OPNFV and the IETF
- How to programmatically assure services with the increasing complexity of the network, to achieve zero-touch automation and greater degrees of flexibility and dynamic control
- How test as a service (TaaS) can enable the test and monitoring aspects of the service to be automated through service orchestration, all in support of service agility
