"Because of rapid technology growth, solutions that are proprietary and hardware-based are becoming obsolete, while demand for easy-to-use, cost-effective virtualized IP test solutions is growing," saidFrost & Sullivan Measurement and Instrumentation Program Manager
However, virtualization is a new concept and several customers do not fully understand the importance of virtualized IP testing. As a result, they do not always have dedicated personnel to handle testing, instead delegate this task to engineers that are also responsible for evaluation, design and support in the production arena.
Low awareness has also fostered the misconception that only proprietary hardware test solutions can be used to test up to 40 gigabits per second (Gbps) and 100 Gbps. Test vendors need to educate customers on the versatility of virtualized IP test equipment to encourage uptake.
"Offering pay-as-you-go pricing models, that allow customers to buy the hardware and attain a small number of licenses to start off with, will add to adoption rates," suggested Sami. "End users can upgrade the number of central processing unit (CPU) cores by simply increasing the number of additional test licenses, and save significantly on capital expenditure."
Additionally, identifying and meeting changing end-user requirements will be crucial for virtualized IP test solution providers to widen their consumer base.
