Brocade, Infinera and ESnet Demo Multilayer Provisioning and Network Optimization Synopsis:
This demonstration uses ESnet’s On-Demand Secure Circuits and Advance Reservation System (OSCARS) application. Join Daniel Williams, Brocade director of product marketing, data center and service provider routing; Chris Liou, Infinera vice president, network strategy; and Inder Monga, ESnet chief technologist and area lead as they show two use cases for the application:
(1) The first phase of the demo showcases how the OSCARS application uses OpenFlow for orchestrated, automated and multilayer provisioning across a packet optical 100 GbE network comprised of Brocade MLXe core routers, Infinera’s DTN-X converged OTN/WDM optical platform, and additional OpenFlow-enabled Layer 2 switches.
(2) The second phase of the demo focuses on flow optimization across a multilayer provisioning network. It demonstrates how the OSCARS application re-optimizes existing packet flows based on real-time monitoring of flow characteristics. It shows how it then reroutes large flows to bypass an intermediate packet switch, saving CapEx and reducing energy consumption.
