ZTE Corporation and China Telecom have completed the world’s first vBRAS full decoupling test in the CTNet2025 Laboratory of China Telecom. Based on three-layer decoupling, the full decoupling further decouples NFVO (network functions virtualization orchestration) from VNFM (virtual network function manager) to implement integrated deployment and orchestration of multiple vendors and multiple VNFs, thereby promoting the development of the new industry ecosystem.
The test involves the items of vBRAS service functions, performance, reliability, and lifecycle management.
As a key partner in vBRAS innovation, ZTE uses its flagship product ZXR10 V6000 vBRAS to complete the cross-connection test with all virtualized cloud platforms from other vendors. It also finishes the connection with TeleNOS (Telecom Network Orchestration System), the NFVO system developed by China Telecom Beijing Research Institute to achieve the decoupling of VNFM and NFVO. Besides, China Telecom uses TeleNOS to invoke ZTE VNFM to implement one-button vBRAS instance creation and automatic scaling. All these achievements verify the cross-platform decoupling capability of ZTE’s vBRAS and provide a practical basis for the future large-scale commercial deployments.
