Lifecycle service assurance: DevOps-based service assurance for the NFV/SDN era

Communications service providers need a new service assurance approach to realise the business benefits of network virtualisation. Traditional, siloed, waterfall-based service assurance methods are not fit for purpose in the era of network function virtualisation/software-defined networking (NFV/SDN) and must give way to a DevOps-based methodology where virtualised network functions (VNFs) and end-to-end services are validated, tested and operationalised in a seamless manner. Service assurance should play a critical role in the full service lifecycle to realise the business benefits of service and operational agility.

In this webinar, Analysys Mason and Spirent cover key topics such as:

  • the need for a new approach to service assurance in the era of NFV/SDN
  • evolution from waterfall- to DevOps-based service assurance – Lifecycle service assurance
  • key lifecycle service assurance use cases in NFV
  • Q&A
