ETSI to host its second NFV Plugtest

ETSI’s next Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) plug test will be held at ETSI, in Sophia Antipolis, France, between 15 and 19 January 2018

It will allow vendors and representatives from open source communities to carry extensive multi-party interoperability testing. At the event, they will be able to evaluate the level of interoperability of their implementations and confirm that they adhere to the NFV specifications that are being defined by ETSI. Supporting open source communities include ETSI OSM (Open Source MANO), OPNFV, OpenStack and Open Baton.

The five day interoperability session will deal with all key components of NFV deployments, including virtual network functions (VNFs), NFV infrastructure (NFVI), Virtual Infrastructure Managers (VIMs) and management and orchestration (MANO) solutions. A series of comprehensive interoperability test sessions will cover the combining together of various different VNFs, NFV MANO solutions and NFV platforms.

Extending the scope of what was undertaken at the previous NFV Plugtests event, which took place earlier this year in Leganés, Spain, the sessions will encompass further important and emerging of NFV. These will include multi-site operation, network path, enhanced platform awareness, fault and performance management and NFV application programming interfaces to name a few.
