Virtual Verifier - virtualized test probe

Virtualized, multifunction service assurance verifier with integrated monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities specifically designed for NFV architectures

Assure virtualized Ethernet services

EXFO’s Virtual Verifier enables service providers to deploy a verifier virtual network function (VNF) anywhere in the virtualized service chain to perform testing and then seamlessly evolve to real-time performance monitoring or vice versa—all with minimal capital expenditures. It leverages the flexibility of SDN/NFV, monitors the quality of those services and assures a high QoE for end users. With unprecedented test scalability to thousands of locations, the Virtual Verifier ensures complete end-to-end SDN/NFV network visibility. Carriers can deploy the Virtual Verifier using a third-party orchestrator to turn-up and assure multiple new circuits simultaneously and measure, in real time, the performance of data transport, wireless backhaul, metro Ethernet, VoIP, mobile and video services.

Benefits of virtualized probes

  • Reduce cost of deploying verifiers and expand the scope of deploying them in every service segment
  • Enable the full lifecycle of Ethernet/IP circuits by turning up, monitoring and troubleshooting them through a single VNF
  • Accelerate time-to-market by enabling fast deployment of assured services on demand
  • Reduce design-to-deployment time
  • Take advantage of an open system that is easy to integrate with SDN/NFV architectures
  • Enable operational efficiency by fixing faults and introducing assured services in real time
  • Reduce OPEX and CAPEX by enabling a fully automated service delivery and monitoring lifecycle
  • Open up new markets and monetization opportunities
