This paper by the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC) recaps the New IP Agency NFV Service Chaining and Live Interoperability Demonstration that took place in May 2016.  The demonstration included the deployment of Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs), service chaining of the VNFs, and data path validation of the end-to-end services. This is a quantifiable independent reference that put Ciena's Blue Planet orchestration platform to the test, proving its rich set of functionality, and open and programmable architecture that achieved the use cases applied.
