Video: ONF SDN Optical Network Webinar – Solving Interoperability & Operations Issues
The popularity of software-defined networking (SDN) amongst service providers is no longer contestable. The reason why is also well known as SDN has the capacity to streamline network provisioning and facilitates the deployment of new services through network programmability. On the other hand, interoperability and operations issues remain a burden service providers need to eliminate in order to broadly deploy SDN in their networks.
Solving interoperability and operations issues is exactly what experts from the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) and Optical Internet Forum (OIF) teach us in this ONF SDN Optical Network Webinar. The work of the ONF has been centered around standardizing SDN interfaces in the network in order to achieve vendor interoperability and expand SDN control to optical equipment as APIs are opened to applications.
Network and infrastructure architects, engineers, and application developers alike will find this webinar to be a valuable resource to their job functions. This webinar on SDN for optical networks shines a light on questions such as:
- Why do transport networks need SDN?
- What are the challenges of making transport SDN work in the real world?
- How is the industry addressing such challenges?
- How does one get involved with transport SDN?
Learn about SDN for optical network, explore the carrier view, and discover OIF’s toolbox for the deployment of SDN in service provider networks with this ONF webinar. Don’t forget to read the post ONF SDN optical network webinar Q&A, where our panelists answered questions about transport SDN and the carrier view of SDN deployments.
