Testing
With more than three dozen virtualization standards to address, CSPs expend tremendous resources -- manpower, hours and money -- testing product and vendor interoperability. In order to use best-of-breed technologies, operators must conduct these tests for each upgrade or risk network performance problems. Thus, expertise in interoperability testing is a prerequisite for CSPs today. There is industry movement toward saving operators money and time, and accelerating virtualization usage: The New IP Agency partners with independent testing labs like EANTC to advance the 'adoption of open and interoperable virtualized IP networks and provide the industry with information on what solutions work and are most likely to work well within service providers' networks as open source-based networking solutions are adopted,' says NIA Director Jeff Hannah.
