        • Testing
          1. Prepare automation harness - connectivity, validation (POD10)? – Cedric?
            1. e.g. functest-smoke-cntt was just created. neutron-tempest-plugin-api is already conformed with the current API section.
          2. Create Test Plan
          3. Finalize Test Harness/Framework

          • (In Progress) Test Requirements Identified
          • Strategy

            1. Use POD10 for Network Intensive. 

            2. Measure stats related to the NFVi datapath capacity.

            3. Goal will be to demonstrate full automation of the environment (continuous deployment) with test cases with some useful test results (continuous testing).
            4. Status? Then look at adding compute and storage intensive VNFs and identify test cases that map back to CNTT specified capabilities.(Luc, Sridhar, Al, Trevor - creating more detailed plan?).
        2. Testing
          1. Create Test Plan
          2. Finalize Test Harness/Framework
          3. Results Collection & Normalization
