SDxCentral cowboys traveled all the way to Dusseldorf, Germany, this week to cover software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) at SDN & OpenFlow World Congress. Here’s a final round up:
Colt is leveraging its SDN capabilities to offer real time provisioning of data center interconnects at certain European sites. Its DCNet-as-a-Service lets wholesale customers use a web portal to reserve ports in various data centers and to create instant connections.
The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) completed a multi-vendor wireless transport SDN proof of concept (PoC). ONF member companies Ceragon Networks, Coriant, Ericsson, Huawei, NEC and SM Optics participated in the PoC.
Telco Systems presented a PoC combining model-driven orchestration and virtual test agents (VTAs). The PoC was supported by Orange and combined Cisco‘s network services orchestrator enabled by Tail-f, Netrounds’ virtual test agents and Telco Systems’ CloudMetro virtualization device running on Intel‘s hardware.
ADVA Optical Networking and BT jointly demonstrated how a backhaul-intensive application – CCTV-based video surveillance – can use NFV at the network’s edge to decentralize processes and improve application performance. The video surveillance application was supplied by ADVA Optical Networking’s partner Alchera Technologies.
