Spirent Velocity is a unique, elastic lab-as-a-service environment that enables testing of Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs) and Software Defined Networks (SDNs). Spirent Velocity is an integrated solution for both lab management and test execution. Velocity provides both virtual and physical testbed orchestration and test case management. Velocity’s value propositions include enabling lab consolidation, automating product validation and QA, and enabling continuous testing. Designed for testers and developers of every skill level, it provides a simple browser-based user experience for defining a testbed topology that can be used to execute a single test case or an entire test plan. Its drag and drop interface allows testers to quickly create and execute complex test scenarios while its multi-user reservation system prevents resource conflicts even with teams spanning multiple continents and working 24×7.
Spirent Velocity is able to provision virtual or NFV-based solutions, devices-under-test, to dramatically reduce the capital expenditure associated with physical labs. Spirent Velocity offers rapid test setup and execution with packaged methodologies. Velocity works tightly together with Spirent TestCenter Virtual and Spirent Avalanche Virtual. That combination enables users to quickly characterize performance under load and gauge security in a stressed cloud.
For example, Spirent Velocity orchestrates both NFV elements (e.g., DUTs) together with Spirent TestCenter Virtual on OpenStack. That enables users to assess virtual machine behavior under real-world traffic conditions.
Spirent Velocity helps accelerate time-to-market and reduce CAPEX and OPEX associated with traditional test beds. The lab-as-a-service allows users to set-up a virtualized test fabric that emulates their desired deployment architecture including choice of OpenStack enabled hypervisors, guest operating systems, reference server setup, NFV and other technologies such as SDN controllers and switches.
