Spirent Communications, a provider of test and assurance solutions for next-generation devices and networks, announced a collaboration with Microsoft for the pre-certification of third-party network functions (NFs) on the new Microsoft Azure Operator Nexus platform.
Recognized as the leading solution for 5G Core testing and emulation, Spirent Landslide can be used to certify that NF offerings can interoperate with the Azure Operator Nexus platform using the Azure Operator Nexus Ready program.
“Microsoft Azure Operator Nexus is a next-generation hybrid cloud platform for operators built for the future of telecommunications,” said Doug Roberts, General Manager of Spirent’s Lifecycle Service Assurance business. “It will enable operators to be more competitive, deliver new services and increase revenue. We’re pleased to assist Microsoft as it works to support deployments at the edge of the cloud, network, or for the enterprise.”
This instance of the Azure Operator Nexus platform combines a North American Tier-1 operator’s Network Cloud with Azure’s security, monitoring, analytics, and AI capabilities. It also supports the new Azure Operator 5G Core, a packet-core-as-a-service application for mobile networks. NF vendors will be able to certify their offerings on Azure Operator Nexus once they have been validated by Landslide testing.
