VNF and Infrastructure Testing


VNF and Infrastructure Testing

VNF (or Virtual Network Function) is the building block within ETSI's current overarching concept of the NFV framework.  It invariably refers to the implementation of a network function using software that is decoupled from the underlying hardware. This attributes to the increase in agility of the existing networks, leading to significant savings in terms of both CAPEX and OPEX.

NFV is creating a paradigm shift in the way service providers manage and operate their network. HSC has been contributing to this transition with a bouquet of solutions that includes completely virtualized, high-performance communications signaling, control and media management solutions. These solutions are propped on a VNF Management framework and open APIs that enable seamless interoperability with other Virtual Network Functions and cloud infrastructure components.

HSC Expertise in VNF and Infrastructure Testing:

HSC has an experienced team of network engineers who provide first class product engineering and systems integration services to build, deploy, manage and orchestrate high performance Virtual Network Functions.

Here are some of HSC’s service offerings specifically targeted to customers seeking VNF and Infrastructure Testing Services.

  • NFV migration of existing network functions
  • NFV Lifecycle management and monitoring, including NFVI setup and installation, VM instance creation / termination, startup, shutdown, CPU & memory monitoring
  • Development of Management and Orchestration (MANO) applications
  • NFV testing and benchmarking
    • Against the VNF descriptor files
    • Load and performance testing of specific vNFs like HSS, IMS, EPC, MME, SGW, PGW, PCRF,etc.
  • Experience in performance testing tools and developing simulators using open source (viz. IXIA, Spirent Landslide)
  • Build, deploy and orchestrate end-to-end IMS and EPC NFV networks with pronounced emphasis on availability, reliability and predictability of the above NFV networks
  • Validating essential NFV features such as coexistence of physical and virtual network functions, elasticity, service chain, VM migration and multitenancy to name a few.
