SD-Core is a use case that defines an architecture and technology set for deploying scalable MPLS/Segment Routing capabilities. The approach includes fast failover using an infrastructure of high-performance brite-box switches managed by an OpenDaylight-powered control plane and TOSCA-based service definitions. In this presentation, Lumina Networks will describe and demonstrate some of the technology components deployed in production today at a major service provider.
The design uses a layered software-based architecture with swappable components based on open source projects rather than vendor-proprietary systems. Open-source based orchestration tools can be used to configure both the software virtual network functions as well as the physical network functions and as part of the same deployment. This approach conveys ALL the benefits of SDN to the provider, including lower capital expenditure, lower operational costs, carrier-class reliability, new subscriber services and complete vendor independence, all at the same time.

During the webinar, you’ll learn:
- The definition of SD-Core
- The value of Open Source components in a real-world carrier network
- How carrier-class reliability can be achieved for core networks on high-performance brite-box switches
SD-Core helps to reduce costs by enabling traffic sharing between the switched and routed domains through segment routing. The use case includes interworking between the domains and path computation for efficient traffic flows over the switched network. The SDN controller provides a common, open platform for controlling the switched and routed BGP/MPLS networks across devices and white boxes via OpenFlow, BGP-LS or segment routing protocols.
