Validate your Virtual Infrastructure

Whether you are data center operator, cloud or service provider, you are always looking to leverage cloud-enabled network services and innovations like SDN and NFV. However, how can you predict NFV deployments to give expected performance and SDN environments to scale to meet future needs? Spirent’s Virtual solutions can help you validate NFV infrastructure, VNFs and Network Services by creating elastic test topologies to run on both control plane and data plane to stress simulated, virtualized network functions.

Physical to Virtual Migration

All the investment made over the years in testing carrier-grade network functions is expected to be ported over to Virtual infrastructure. Spirent’s Virtual solution delivers a unified testing architecture that ensures full compatibility with any Spirent TestCenter interface and enables porting of prior investment in test cases for physical to virtual.
