ONF Webinar: Solving Interoperability & Operations Issues — The Guide to SDN for Optical Networks

Comments Off on ONF Webinar: Solving Interoperability & Operations Issues — The Guide to SDN for Optical Networks 7

The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) has been addressing the standardization of SDN interfaces in the network that is needed to support interoperability across multiple vendors and technologies, extending SDN control to optical equipment and opening APIs to applications. OIF, working together with ONF, is addressing other pieces of the “toolbox” for SDN deployment, including carrier requirements and interoperability testing between vendors. Lyndon Ong, OIF’s Market Awareness & Education Co-chair, Networking and Vishnu Shukla Chair of the OIF Carrier Working Group will review the work on SDN for optical networks. The webinar is designed for network and infrastructure architects and planners, application developers and engineers.

We will cover the following topics:

  • How is SDN deployed in a service provider transport network?
  • Key interfaces for SDN interoperability
  • Southbound (OpenFlow) interface specifications
  • Northbound interface or transport API specifications
  • Carrier view: What is needed to make SDN more widely deployable in the service provider network?
  • OIF’s toolbox for service provider SDN deployment and operation
  • Next steps in joint interoperability testing of SDN
