Many virtualized network functions (VNFs) have been announced, but few have been evaluated and independently tested. That's why the recent evaluation of the Nokia Virtualized Service Router (VSR) and Virtualized Mobile Gateway (VMG), by experienced and respected test lab EANTC, is so important to the industry.
Join this webinar to find out how the extensive functionality, performance and manageability of Nokia's advanced VNFs were validated, and get exclusive insight into the results and EANTC's conclusions.
