China : Huawei Releases 3 Dimensional KPI Assessments for High Efficient NFV Multi-Vendor Integration White Paper.
Huawei has released a white paper titled 3 Dimensional KPI Assessments for High Efficient NFV Multi-Vendor Integration. The white paper describes how a set of multi-vendor NFV benchmarks or Key Performance Indicators (KPI) can greatly improve integration efficiency while minimizing integration risks to facilitate multi-vendor NFV adoption.
The key challenges faced with multi-vendor NFV integration, due to a lack of industry standard benchmarks or KPIs, are the resulting higher costs of integration which inhibit larger scale multi-vendor NFV deployments. In order to achieve commercial usage capabilities, a set of KPIs are required to guide the multi-vendor NFV integration on various aspects including interoperability, compatibility, performances reliability and operation and manageability.
The paper introduces a Huawei multi-dimensional assessment framework that provides a reference point to evaluate the implementation feasibility of a multi-vendor NFV solution. It provides examples of KPI metrics that are supported by the evaluation system that can guide a multi-vendor NFV implementation. The evaluation system is constructed based on Huaweis accumulated experiences in integrating multi-vendor NFV projects.
Huawei then describes the overall evaluation methodology that has been adopted to assess the overall technical feasibility based on the scores or strengths for each KPI metric. The evaluation methodology is applied to three use cases on end-to-end functionality, performances and reliability to explain the scoring mechanisms. The objective is to align CSP multi-vendor NFV strategy with important KPI metrics in order to identify the baseline capabilities of its multi-vendor NFV solution.
Jacky Hu, General Manager of SDN/NFV Integration Service, Huawei, said, Huawei has extensive experiences in implementing multi-vendor NFV projects and we can help carriers to achieve highly efficient integration by identifying the overall technical viability and risks associated with carries multi-vendor NFV strategies.
Huawei has been involved in more than 170 commercial NFV projects, and the rich experience in project practice are accumulated in Huaweis Central Repository, which provides a reference benchmarks to support the end to end delivery Lifecycle from plan/design, build/test to deployment of multi-vendor NFV solutions.
