STEVENAGE, UK -- Cobham Wireless, a global leader in the provision of advanced wireless coverage and mobile communication systems, has announced the launch of the TeraVM elastic test bed, a first-to-market NFV test solution, allowing network function vendors and service providers to share lab assets between facilities. This enables engineers to create virtual test pods to ‘stress test’ network functions, reducing ownership costs by eliminating the need for multiple labs all using proprietary hardware.

Network vendors, service providers and enterprises with global operations traditionally have very low utilisation of test assets, typically around 20%. Using the TeraVM elastic test bed, this can be brought up to 80-90% as traffic generation resources can be dynamically reallocated to where they are needed most, bringing significant agility, scalability and cost-savings to test operations.

The elastic test bed further enhances TeraVM, Cobham Wireless’ market-leading IP traffic emulation tool, by enabling test pods which can scale to terabits per second of application traffic. TeraVM is currently used by the world’s largest service providers, who are re-using their standard computing hardware for IP network performance validation.
