      Description of Use Case / Requirement:

       Support for Test Topology Auto Design (NFV Testing Automatic Platform):

      • Goal- To achieve a more flexible NFV automated test platform, ONAP-based NFV automatic testing platform provides a quick test service(topology) design composed of tested VNF and test environment, as well as supports the import and reuse test service(topology) between different test environments.
      • Business Impact- There are a large number of cross-department and cross-organization communications during the traditional network element, system or equipment network access test. And the manual errors are inevitable, the knowledge in test field cannot be solidified. The cost of each test is high and the test cycle is always long. After introducing NFV, because network element software and hardware equipment are layered decoupled, the introduction of a large number of open source components as well as the frequent upgrade of the software itself, make network access test become more complicated and frequent. Testing has become a bottleneck during the introduction and iteration of new technologies. Therefore, it is urgent to introduce automated test tools. By introducing test topology auto design and corresponding enhancements, it can solidify domain knowledge, and help reduce labor costs, shorten test cycle, improve test efficiency , optimize test accuracy.
      • Business Markets- CSPs can accelerate new network services deployment cycle, improve interoperability and software quality, and reduce in-house testing effort and reduce costs. Vendor can leverage it to deduce the cost of VNF developing, and improve time to revenue for new product offerings, achieve greater alignment with customer requirements from service provider, and demonstrate product quality through open ecosystem testing. Instrument manufacturers can integrate their test tools and test capabilities into this platform, and demonstrate product quality through open ecosystem testing. Integrators can refer to the open source implementation of this platform and provide solutions for their commercial products. At the same time, the realization of this requirement can be combined with OVP's existing processes to accelerate the testing and certification of OVP NFV commercial products.
      • Business Funding- The test topology auto design tool can help reduce the labor costs in traditional NFV test process and the R & D costs of NFV commercial products, as well as shorten the benefit reaping period of new products, and improve test efficiency.

      • Enhance SDC to support:
      1. Quickly design a test service (topology) composed with tested VNF and test environment (One way is to define abstract testing service (topology) template for each type of VNF);
      2. For the service designed, can be imported into SDC for modification or enhancement, or the test template can be reused for different test environments (the SDC needs to support service import).
