Brocade and Infinera show how multilayer provisioning using SDN enables services and bandwidth to be dynamically provisioned via a single screen across the router and transport layers to speed service delivery. Automated multilayer optimization analyzes network topology and traffic flows to seamlessly route traffic at the most effective and efficient layer of the network, saving both capital and operational costs.
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.
