SDN moves into the WAN - SDN Controller turns Packet Optical Network into IP VPN Engine

Posted on 16 July, 2014 at 7:55

A significant breakthrough in the progress of SDN into deployed Wide Area Networks was demonstrated in Tokyo in late May this year. UTStarcom demonstrated that its SOO SDN controller can turn its widely deployed MPLS-TP based packet optical platform into a provisioning engine not only for MEF Ethernet services but also for IP VPN services, both at IPv4 and IPv6. This allows traditional Layer 3 IP services to be delivered programmatically via an SDN controller over a packet optical transport platform with the associated cost and operational benefits. Another SDN application demonstrated was the capability for both dynamic and scheduled provisioning of bandwidth on demand services.

SDN and NFV leadership bodies join in collaboration

Posted on 20 March, 2014 at 2:45

The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) and the ETSI Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) group have announced a strategic collaboration on SDN for NFV.

This demonstrates the close synergy of SDN and NFV, where SDN service steering in particular becomes a key enabler for NFV.

MEF charters course for Carrier Ethernet based on SDN and Virtualisation

Posted on 20 March, 2014 at 2:40

Nan Chen, the president of the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) outlined the evolution of MEF's Carrier Ethernet standards from the current CE2.0 to CE X which will be based on SDN and NFV virtualisation at the MPLS SDN World Congress 2014. The proposed MEF CE X standard will focus on 3 key trends using SDN and Virtualisation: Dynamic, Assured, Orchestrated networks.
