Recognizing the need for neutral, open source, community-driven verification initiatives for NFV deployments, the OPNFV Verification Program (OVP) was launched in early 2018 with a focus on commercial NFVI/VIM product offerings. OVP is now evolving to cover compliance, validation, performance and testing of VNFs. In this session, learn how the program is expanding, process updates to begin addressing VNF validation, and how the program is working with GSMA and leading global carriers in the Common NFVI Telco Taskforce (CNTT) to create a common NFVI for the industry.
