While the construct of Network Functions Virtualization and Software Defined Networking has graduated from a conceptual to a viable technology phase, real world deployments are still proving to be a challenge. Telecom Equipment Manufacture’s (TEM’s) have to find a reliable, deterministic manner to benchmark their wares to specific virtual network functions. Benchmarks which are interoperable, repeatable, based on open standards supporting plug & play modular architectures, to accommodate multi-vendor VNF support will be needed.
Intel has a deep experience in stemming from the successful adoption of virtualization in the data centers; Learnings from the virtualization of the data center journey are directly applicable to standardizing and accelerating the benchmarking for NFV, all with the aim to vastly accelerate the adoption curve of virtualization in networking.
