Anritsu announces successful completion of 2nd ETSI NFV interoperability plugtests

Anritsu A/S has announced the successful completion of the 2nd NFV Plugtests with the scope of validating and testing Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) interoperability.

Anritsu participated the European Telecommunications Standardisation Institute (ETSI) event with its MasterClaw vProbe VNF solution, with the aim of validating multi-VIM and multi-VNF interoperability with commercial and open-source MANO and VIM/NFVI implementations.

Participants of the multi-vendor interoperability event included 19 VNF vendors, 12 MANO suppliers and 12 NFVI/VIM solutions. Anritsu says that its vProbe VNF registered a 100% success rate on the executed test cases, proving multi-vendor compatibility and progress towards a cloud-ready Service Assurance solution.

“In today’s fast-moving networks ensuring interoperability and evolution to the cloud is a key CSP business objective. Anritsu believes these events help progress the industry towards the vision of the Telco Cloud and we are pleased to have taken part in it. Anritsu has also gained valuable insight into the progress made towards delivering a cloud native Service Assurance and identified areas for future development,” said Neil Tomlinson, COO, Anritsu Service Assurance.

Anritsu claims its MasterClaw vProbe is capable of passively monitoring NFV and SDN networks and services enabling use-cases such as, network service troubleshooting, real-time service specific KPI monitoring, real-time streaming analytics and slice-and-dice multi-dimensional network analytics with the scope of improving customer experience.
