The move to virtualization will create new service opportunities and new flexibility for telecom networks, but will also introduce new complexities that will challenge the ability to offer the highly reliable, predictable and available networks for which telecom has been known. Key to address those challenges are the evolving test strategies that will enable network operators to ensure the performance of virtual network functions, and to address the changes in underlying physical elements as well. This webinar features experts from CenturyLink, EXFO and Spirent sharing their experience in moving virtualization from proofs of concept into the real world, and offers a practical look at the testing issues that must be addressed to support virtualization going forward.
