QualiTest and DataVision Joining Forces for NFV/SDN Assurance

By Michael Guta October 02, 2015

QualiTest, a global leader in independent software testing and quality assurance, has announced a partnership with DataVision, a provider of SDN/NFV consulting, solutions and staffing systems. The companies have joined forces to offer joint services for implementing and optimizing SDN/NFV network elements and infrastructure testing.

With this partnership, both companies will be bringing key skill sets to offer technology support services for their customers. The testing services of QualiTest and the migration and implementation solutions of DataVision will provide design and planning, network integration and migration, operational support and network optimization.

As more enterprises, data centers and network operators migrate to smart infrastructures, they will turn to companies like Qualitest and DataVision, which provide the industry standard in Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN).

Datavision has developed testing solutions to help organizations transition to the new networking and computing technology currently overhauling the digital workplace. The company’s SDN QuickStart Lab platform is used by QualiTest to test SDN use cases and vendor selections in real-life simulations. The test performed using this platform verifies the functionality of the hardware and software components companies are looking to install as part of their infrastructure.

QuickStart Lab has NFV Test Accelerators, pre-defined test assets constructed from over 580 test requirements and over 6,000 test cases, and a test automation library of more than 1,000 test scripts for comprehensive MANO, NFVI and VNF tests.

"Our partnership with DataVision will ensure that we are guiding our clients towards scalable and agile networks, while reducing operational expenditures,” said Bryon Lowen, QualiTest UK's VP of Telco.

The innovation cycle taking place is accelerating the end of life of hardware-based appliances. Today’s information technology requires a much smarter and flexible infrastructure, which must adapt to meet demand at a moment’s notice and scale without limitations. Having the tools and expertise needed for this transition delivered by two proven companies will ensure a successful migration to NFV and SDN.
