Automated active testing supports CSPs’ network automation strategies
Network automation reduces operational costs and allows communications service providers (CSPs) to achieve service agility in virtual and cloud-native networks. Automated active testing presents an early opportunity for CSPs to automate a plethora of service assurance processes, and provides high-quality, real-time network performance and service quality insights that can be used to perform automated root-cause analysis and drive automated actions.
This report provides:
- an explanation of why current approaches to active testing are unsuitable for the NFV and SDN networks
- a discussion on what CSPs and vendors should do to make active testing fit for purpose
- an overview of the top CSP use cases enabled by active testing automation
- an illustration of how active testing automation enables network automation.
