Communications networks are undergoing their biggest transformation in more than a decade. In the past the vendors were in the driving seat when major changes were wrought, but this time around the service providers are driving the development of the new NFV ecosystem and they are demanding that the tried and tested carrier-grade networks of today's physical networks be exactly and entirely replicated in the virtual networks of tomorrow. This presents vendors with a huge challenge, not least in terms of system y testing and validation.
