Testimonials
"The NIA will help us to get a cleaned-up picture of standards and implementations."

-- Axel Clauberg, Vice President of Transport, Aggregation and IP and Fixed Access, Deutsche Telekom --
"NIA will shorten our cycles for the RFPs, the testing, and for seeing who does what, and what works with whom."

"BT supports VNF-NFVI interoperability testing by the NIA. We are concerned with the growing diversity of NFVI and specializations that limit the portability of VNFs. This growing diversity leads to increasing operational complexity and costs."

-- Axel Clauberg, VP of Transport, Aggregation and IP and Fixed Access, Deutsche Telekom --
