12th International Conference on Network and Service Management
Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Oct. 31 - Nov. 4, 2016

ManSDN/NFV Keynote

Test in the new world of softwarization

Pierre Lynch (Lead Technologist, Product Management, Ixia, Vice-Chair TST working group, ETSI NFV ISG)
Along with multiple benefits, the softwarization of networking has multiple impacts on the organization, the operational mindset and the implementation of networking for the future. The presentation will look into how the test function will fit into a software-based networking paradigm. We will outline how test fits into the paradigm, touching on concepts like Devops and CI/CD, as well as more traditional testing models adapted to NFV and SDN. It will also discuss our experience in the differences encountered when testing in a virtual environment, and will detail concrete factors to consider with the platform, the test devices and the configuration when designing the test strategy.
