Ericsson

Cloud Infrastructure NFVI

Background

Vodafone awarded Ericsson the PSI for their cloud infrastructure project. The program was 1 year into a tight 5 year schedule. The program deals with cutting edge new technology and architecture, e.g.: Open, NFV-Ready architecture, including vertical IP, enabling CSPs to transition to NFV, and emerging ISV solutions and components.

Solution

DX were engaged to provide the following:

End-to-end test management;

Model/environment management where integration, collaboration and testing can occur in a safe environment ahead of deployment to carrier networks;

Network engineering & integration;
User acceptance (UAT) and business readiness (BRT) testing.

Results

Phase 1 was completed with infrastructure deployed and milestones achieved within agreed timelines. End-to-end integration and UAT completed for LAN and one site in production. The DX Team were recognised for outstanding performance by both Vodafone and Ericsson.
