WESTFORD, Mass., June 12, 2017NETSCOUT SYSTEMS, INC., (NASDAQ: NTCT), a leading provider of business assurance, a powerful combination of service assurance, cybersecurity, and business intelligence solutions, today announced its participation in the Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV) Summit in Beijing, China.  At this major industry event, NETSCOUT will demonstrate its powerful end-to-end service assurance capabilities for a broadband service hosted at Virtualized Central Office (vCO) in collaboration with a range of OPNFV members. The Summit provides an opportunity to reach the innovative communities, developers and companies transforming the networking industry through open source NFV.

“We are pleased to collaborate with our OPNFV colleagues to showcase a virtualized broadband central office environment to telecommunications service providers with an architecture that has compelling capabilities and flexibility for serving residential and business customers,” stated Dr. Vikram Saksena, chief solutions architect, NETSCOUT. “The dynamic nature of NFV makes it challenging to assure the user experience as services are created and delivered on demand. Service providers want to take advantage of the agility and elasticity offered by the NFV environment while maintaining and enhancing the user experience. NETSCOUT’s vSTREAM™ and InfiniStreamNG™ virtualized products provide correlated, end-to-end visibility into service layer performance through packet data analysis of the traffic flowing across the network, which is absolutely critical to successful NFV deployments.”

NETSCOUT’s virtualized service assurance solutions will be demonstrated as part of the OPNFV community demo at the OPNFV summit in Beijing at the “Virtualized Central Office - A Different Approach Using ODL” presentation on Wednesday, June 14, 2017.

“NETSCOUT and the other community members really stepped up for a collaboration that shows how we can integrate the technologies and concepts we’ve been using in the data center for the CO and set the stage for further open source evolution of NFV,” said Heather Kirksey, director, OPNFV. “The service assurance element from NETSCOUT provides a critical end-to-end user experience visibility required by service providers to better understand the function and potential of their NFV deployments.”
