ETSI Webinar: NFV PoC #39 - Virtualized Service Assurance Management in vGi-LAN on 9 June at 15:00 CEST
Service assurance accurately measures and reports on infrastructure (network and platform) KPIs that might affect a specific service. Although service assurance is well-understood in the traditional networking environment, applying a similar mechanism to network functions virtualisation infrastructure (NFV-I), and using principles from software-defined networking (SDN) to automatically restore service level remains a work in progress.
Telenor, Brocade, Creanord, and Intel have partnered together to develop an approach to Virtual Service Assurance Management (vSAM), enabling more open and deterministic service deployment and resource usage in a virtual environment. This webinar shows this approach demonstrated in a Network Functions Virtualisation ISG Proof of Concept.
Tim Epkes is a Principal Software Engineer at Brocade under the CTO for Mobility, working on open-source software development and solutions prototyping.
Antti Pappila is a co-founder and CTO of Creanord focusing on innovation, Creanord's long term roadmap and strategic partnerships.
Brendan Ryan is a senior software engineer in the Communications Infrastructure Division at Intel, working on open-source software development and customer enablement towards adoption of SDN and NFV technologies in telecoms networks.
