Hardware delivery verification(HDV)/Fu Qiao
Hardware is the base for NFV software deployment. However, it is still difficult to prepare and verify hardware in an automatic way. Based on several Operator's field trail experiences, there is a desire to verify the hardware underlying the stack / infrastructure, with this processing being automated. Initially, this verification would be carried out in labs responsible for the performance of the compliance testing, especially in the future cases examining VNF performance, where hardware will have direct impact. However, the tooling should also apply directly to larger deployments, verifying the hardware, settings, network wiring, etc., which will save valuable time for operators and users in standing up infrastructure.
More details can be found in the following links
Have a comprehensive understanding of the CNTT community, especially Reference implementation and reference compliance
Hand on opportunity for hardware levey testing and verification
Have a comprehensive understanding of hardware provision tools, including ironic and etc., and hardware provision interface, e.g. IPMI, redfish
Have opportunity to work on NFV cloud of more than 1000 servers
1. HDV toolset framework
2. HDV prototype
3. toolset documents
Relation to LF Networking
Related to OPNFV and CNTT, especially to the CIRV project in OPNFV, and RI WS in CNTT.
Bachelor’s and/or Master’s degree in Computer Science, software Engineering or related technical discipline
- Familiar with Python programming.
- Basic understanding of one of the code versioning tools like Git.
- Strong written and verbal communication and interpersonal skills in English.
- Have basic knowledge of x86 servers and network devices
The test cases will be used in CNTT RC testing, in OPNFV pharos lab testing. And would possibly used by multiple operators in their NFV Hardware delivery testing.
