Executive Summary

This guide explains how to deploy Virtual Test Agents (vTAs) from Paragon Active Assurance in OpenStack and how to control these from Paragon Active Assurance Control Center.

In ETSI NFV terminology, these vTAs are likewise referred to as Virtual Test Agents, and the centralized controller is referred to as the combination of Test Controller (TC) and Test Result Analysis Module (TRAM).

This guide assumes that you have a basic knowledge of OpenStack and Network Function Virtualization (NFV), and that you have your own OpenStack environment in which to launch the vTA images.
