The transformation from fixed network functions to virtual network functions requires a fundamental design change in how application and services are tested and assured in a hybrid virtual network. Workloads will move dynamically to support demand scaling in/out in shorter timeframes which obviates the need for planned deployment of dedicated fixed monitoring points. Vprobes will move with workloads at the edge closer to the UE and access points. Edge computing and the distribution of workloads will require more network visibility for service assurance and customer impact analysis. The supplier market is redesigning solutions to disrupt incumbent suppliers. VNF suppliers are providing rich data set collection as part of core solution.
