ADTRAN leads forum's advanced application-level traffic generation testing

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), the provider of next-generation open networking solutions, has announced it is an initiative within the Broadband Forum that will leverage application-level traffic generation for advanced broadband testing, the company said.

This is driven by migration to NFV-based systems creating a new requirement for a standardized approach to testing of dynamically reconfigured virtualized services, which can challenge traditional methods of performance characterization.

The first project in the Application-level Traffic Generation for Advanced Broadband Testing Project Stream is expected to be completed in late 2018, with follow on projects in early 2019.
