SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Spirent Communications, the leader in networks, devices and applications testing solutions, today unveiled Spirent Velocity, a virtual lab environment that helps validate Software Defined Networks (SDN) / Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies and deployments. Selected as the Best of Interop 2014 Finalist in the Cloud category, Spirent Velocity helps accelerate time to market and reduce expenses associated with traditional virtual and physical test beds.

For SDN/NFV technologies, predicting how networks, applications and security devices perform is a significant challenge since there are multiple elements involved, from the network layer through the compute and application layers. Spirent Velocity allows users to quickly set-up a predictable and repeatable virtualized test fabric to a desired deployment architecture, including choice of hypervisors, guest operating systems, reference server setup, NFV and other network elements such as SDN controllers and switches.

Spirent Velocity’s cloud-based design seamlessly incorporates the Spirent TestCenter Virtual and Spirent Avalanche Virtual test appliances, simplifying setting-up and running test cases using a database of methodologies for testing performance, availability, security and scale (PASS) of SDN/NFV. The cloud-based framework lets test engineers utilize physical and virtual test products of their choice on the platform, including other various test appliances or open source tools, to take advantage of existing investments and resources.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
