Lightreading commissioned the European Advanced Networking Test Center team evaluation of Cisco’s NFVI solution in September 2015. The first part of the resulting report, which provides an overview of Cisco’s NFVI and an in-depth, multi-page performance evaluation of Cisco’s virtual switch technology, has been published — see Validating Cisco’s NFV Infrastructure Pt. 1 and Cisco’s vSwitch Makes the Grade.
The second part of the report is now available Read More »

Service Providers seeking to reduce operating expenses, deliver new services rapidly, are looking to SDN (Software Defined Networking) and virtualization technologies. Earlier this year, Light Reading and EANTC published an evaluation of Cisco’s virtualization and cloud solution, including multivendor network orchestration and optimization. They’ve now published a follow-on, that takes a closer look at the data center, specifically the Network Function Virtualization infrastructure (NFVI).

Service providers everywhere are trying to simplify their networks – moving services to the cloud that are easier to roll out, can be provisioned by the customer, and enable new business models.
Cisco’s virtual managed service (vMS) solution uses a self-service online portal to give end users a simple way to select, subscribe to and activate highly secure and scalable network services – even if the underlying network is multivendor. The VMS platform service function packages includescloud VPNs for branch, site-to-site and remote access encrypted VPNs, as well as firewall and web security, all offered as a cloud-managed IT solution on a subscription basis.

We introduced a ground breaking “megatest” back in March 2015, validating Cisco’s service provider Virtualization and Cloud portfolio. During that test, conducted independently by LightReading and EANTC, they showed how carriers could start the journey to offer virtualized services in a multi-vendor environment. A key point was that no matter where operators are in the process – design, implement, or monetize – the technology is mature enough to deploy today.
Some of you may want to check out the solution in person – and if you’re going to San Diego or Chicago next week then you’re in luck. Here’s what we’ve got going on: Read More »

Last week at Mobile World Congress was incredibly busy and there were many compelling announcements. In case you missed it one that we’re especially excited about was about how Light Reading commissioned the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC) as an independent party to validate Cisco’s Cloud Managed Business Solutions.
This study is truly groundbreaking as it’s the first effort of its kind to evaluate Read More »
