Service providers have learned a lot about SDN and NFV over the past 2 years in lab testing and proofs-of-concept (PoCs), and many are moving toward live network commercial deployments. Still, many questions, issues and hurdles remain. To speed up the path to commercial deployment, validation of virtualized network functions (VNFs) and the NFV infrastructure (NFVI) is critical. Advanced tools exist to accelerate NFV deployments whether in a modern software-defined data center or in a mini data center in a cloud central office. This on-demand webinar details how operators can validate VNFs, NFVI and network services to speed up commercial deployments.
