Build SDNFV Confidence During Testing
The effectiveness of network function virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) migrations can be difficult to evaluate. Ensuring that your virtualization deployment operates as expected requires complete traffic testing. Keysight offers end-to-end test suites to validate SDN/NFV migrations to accelerate time to market. With versatility, scale, and realism, you can test before you deploy and replay captured traffic from production afterwards.
The key to a successful virtual deployment is having test capabilities integrated into the continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI-CD) test pipeline. Tests simulating millions of subscribers using hundreds of applications need to be virtualized, configured, and executed across virtual environments including private, hybrid, and public cloud infrastructures—with tight integration into orchestration environments like OpenStack.
The Path to Successful NFV Rollout
NFV and SDN migrations can be difficult to understand. Many organizations struggle to quantify the benefits, understand the practical migration steps, and measure deployment success. Keysight offers end-to-end validation of NFV migrations to accelerate time to market. With versatility, scale, and realism, you can replay captured traffic from production while simulating millions of subscribers using hundreds of applications.
The key to a successful NFV migration is having test capabilities integrated into the continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI-CD) test pipeline. Tests need to be virtualized, deployable, configurable, and executable across multiple virtualization environments, including private, hybrid, and public cloud infrastructures—with tight integration into orchestration environments like OpenStack.
Test Virtual Services in Development and Quality Assurance
Whether software-only or hardware-assisted test solutions, Keysight enables testing of your virtual services with many flexible test options. For developers, the combination of Developer or the software-based Virtual Edition versions of the this test portfolio enable early functional testing and debugging without interfering with quality assurance (QA) systems. Then when ready to put under heavy realistic traffic load, the QA team has the needed hardware to fully stress test the virtual services.
Developer is a software test tool that makes it easy for DevOps to create realistic traffic environments in the lab with real applications and sophisticated troubleshooting capabilities. Issues can be uncovered and resolved early in development and much faster than with traditional tools.
Many virtual network functions in the core network run at high traffic speeds—from 1GE to 100GE. Keysight offers a range of test environment accelerators to assist in load testing. These include Novus™, PerfectStorm™, and CloudStorm™, supporting line rate Layer 2 to 7 traffic generation at the highest speeds.
We offer a range of software-only based test solutions that integrate and support OpenStack-based provisioned networks. These include IxNetwork® Virtual Edition (VE), IxLoad® VE, and BreakingPoint® VE to test with realistic traffic loads, and the widest range of cyber attack loads—all seamlessly integrated into your CI-CD test pipeline.
Understanding the Real ROI
When you are trying to get to market, four months can seem like an eternity. It gives your competition time to catch up. If you are not able to recreate your live environment for realistic testing, bugs remain elusive. The longer these issues remain unresolved, the more severe the impact to the quality of customer experience. Such underlying issues directly impact performance, uptime, and ultimately, the reliability of services delivered. This can result in higher customer churn and have a huge impact on top-line revenue.
Keysight helps you deliver a trusted and reliable NFV infrastructure with uncompromising quality of experience (QoE) and easier configuration through automation and powerful monitoring tools. We can help you accelerate time to revenue by 20%.
