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."

-- Nico Fischbach, Director of Strategy, Architecture and Innovation, Colt Technology Services Group --
"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."

-- Peter J. Willis, Chief Researcher, BT --
"The Cloudification of Network Functions and the change in our production models is probably the biggest transformation ever hitting the Telco industry. In a world build on Open Standards and Open Source, testing and integration remains a major effort - an independent entity like NIA driving this can deliver huge value to us as network operators and our vendors."

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