As deployments of carrier Ethernet-based services in the metro network grow in scale and scope, delivering services from end-to-end often involves crossing an MPLS core. This DemoFriday™ from Cyan, Accedian, and Colt highlights how network operators can leverage open, multi-layer SDN solutions to deliver services more efficiently across multiple technology domains.
Cyan, Accedian and Colt SDN WAN Demo Networking Synopsis:
This presentation builds on Cyan and Accedian’s well-received August 23 SDN WAN DemoFriday™ provisioning and cloud service orchestration. This DemoFriday™ also explores how Colt implemented SDN solutions within their Ethernet Multi-Service Platform (MSP) network to lower costs and enable faster, more automated end-to-end service delivery.
Together, Abel Tong, Cyan director of solutions marketing; Ken Gold, Accedian senior product manager; and Mirko Voltolini, director of design and architecture at Colt demonstrate how the following aspects of service delivery are improved with SDN in a real-world network:
- Multi-domain (access, transport and core), multi-vendor and multi-layer management
- The “lifecycle of a circuit,” including service turn-up, cut-in, and A-to-Z provisioning
- Performance management
- Real-time SLA monitoring
- Fault management, alarm notification, and troubleshooting
