Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) deployments are challenged by a lack of broadly accepted industry benchmarks to drive conformance to carrier-grade requirements.
Dimensioning network workloads and modeling the impact of stress vectors on system-level capacity according to key performance indicators enable operators to calculate the total cost of ownership for transforming their network to SDN and NFV.
This white paper reveals how the NSB initiative consists of the benchmarking test methodology for VNFs demonstrated using the Test Harness tool with a reference set of open source approximations of VNFs.
