Advantech Remote Evaluation Service
for Intel Select Solutions for NFVI
This portal allows network builders to test performance and functionality of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) running on Advantech verified Intel Select Solutions for NFVI. The portal is accessible through Advantech’s Remote Evaluation Service and can be used by Communication Service Providers (CoSPs), integrators and partners to rapidly validate VNFs on a pre-validated and workload optimized NFVI configuration.
Advantech Network Function Virtualization (NFV) Test-Drive Portals help the industry address the main challenges in the virtualization of the network infrastructure by providing an easy-to-use remote lab to evaluate:
  • Performance & Functionality: benchmark VNFs early on to detect and remove bottlenecks that may hit at different levels of the virtual stack.
  • Scalability & Network Architecture: validate scale-out and service chaining of VNFs, and prepare for intensive workloads.
  • Reliability & Security: test VNFs on carrier-grade platforms to assess overall system availability and expose them to real-world threats.
Remote access to Advantech's early evaluation and benchmarking lab saves testing costs, reduces integration risks and accelerates time to rollout.
Advantech is an active member of the NFV ecosystem and works together with partners through different industry initiatives to fuel NFV adoption and unlock new business opportunities for traditional and emerging players. This test drive portal is a simple yet powerful tool built on open, pre-validated and integrated NFVI platforms focused on accelerating transition to the new IP infrastructure.
