The UNH-IOL Approved as the First OVP Verified 3rd Party Laboratory
The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), an independent provider of broad-based testing and standards conformance services for the networking industry, announced today they are the first lab to complete and receive the verification badge as the first OVP Verified Lab within the OPNFV Verification Programs.
“We’re excited to see the continued growth and drive within our development communities,” said Heather Kirksey, vice president, Community and Ecosystem Development, the Linux Foundation. “Announcing the first OVP Verified Lab is another milestone in those programs and activities. The UNH-IOL joining as the first OVP Verified Lab ensures commercial NFVI and VNF products and vendors have more options to prepare for the market and an interoperable ‘One NFVI’ future.”
As a verified test lab, the UNH-IOL has demonstrated a commitment to the open source community and a level of competence in the execution of testing. This announcement comes with the expansion of the programs to include testing of VNFs (virtual network functions), based on requirements defined within the ONAP project. Previously, the programs included functional testing of the NFVI platform or infrastructure, according to a set of tests agreed within the OPNFV community.
“As the ecosystem of open source software continues to grow, operators and end users are facing an increasingly complex problem in integrating and testing of those systems,” said Lincoln Lavoie, UNH-IOL Senior Engineer & Chair of the LF Networking Compliance and Verification Committee. “By creating these programs, the industry is working together to create scalable testing, taking input from end users for the program requirements and goals. The UNH-IOL is thrilled to participate in this process by offering testing services to the industry based on open and agreed test plans.”
The UNH-IOL has been working with the OPNFV and Linux Foundation since late 2016 as the host for OPNFV's Lab as a Service (LaaS) infrastructure, providing community and developer resources for the Linux Foundation's Networking Projects. The UNH-IOL is also hosting hardware for other OPNFV projects, available to developers within those projects.

The UNH-IOL’s Lincoln Lavoie, will be speaking at the 2019 Open Networking Summit (ONS) this week in San Jose, CA on the vision of the CVC (Compliance and Verification Committee) within LFN. The UNH-IOL will also be participating during the LF Networking Demos at ONS and the demo will be of the LaaS 2.0 features and details can be found on the ONS Event page.
