China Mobile Sets Up OPNFV Test Lab

Comments Off on China Mobile Sets Up OPNFV Test Lab 16

China Mobile has stepped up its efforts in NFV with the launch of a lab in Beijing last week, as the mobile giant continues to embrace virtualization of its mobile network.

The OPNFV (Open Platform for NFV) lab, touted as the first of its kind in Asia, is aimed at providing an open, standards-based and integrated environment for chipset manufacturers, cloud system providers and software suppliers to test various technical aspects of OPNFV, such as functionality, performance and reliability.

In future the lab will also cover different aspects of telecom networks, including access networks, core networks, transmission networks and data centers, said Bill Huang, head of China Mobile Research Institute.

The operator has initially collaborated with nine vendors: Dell, Huawei, HP, Intel, Quanta, Redhat, Spirent, Wind River and ZTE. Original post at Telecom Asia
