Testing organized by the New IP Agency (NIA) and EANTC to demonstrate multi-vendor interoperability for NFV MANO solutions
Fremont, Calif., May 17, 2017 — Procera Networks today announced that PacketLogic/V has successfully participated in the New IP Agency’s (NIA) Public Multi-Vendor Interoperability Event for the Big Communications Event 2017. This testing focused on the interoperability assessment of Management and Orchestration solutions (MANO). The different solutions tested included the NFV Orchestrator (NFVO) and the Virtual Network Function Manager (VNFM) with Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) and VNF Infrastructure (NFVI) from different vendors.
“Interoperability is critical to create a viable, open market for service providers to choose the best NFV solutions,” said Carsten Rossenhoevel, Managing Director, EANTC. “Our report includes detailed insight into the state-of-the-art of multi-vendor NFV MANO implementations. Procera has demonstrated continuous commitment to public NFV interoperability and performance testing."
"NFV interoperability is a critical aspect of moving NFV from the lab into deployment,” said Alexander Haväng, CTO for Procera Networks. “Procera’s participation in this testing demonstrates our commitment to accelerating the movement to deployable NFV solutions for network operators, and multi-vendor MANO testing is critical to moving large-scale NFV demplyments forward.”
The testing included 7 vendors, with 4 NFVi platforms, 3 MANO platforms, and 4 VNFs participating in the testing. The test results are available in the test report available at https://img.lightreading.com/downloads/EANTC-NIA-BCE2017-WhitePaper.pdf
