EKINOPS helps to bring optical transport a step closer to SDN

tunel-2055970_1920

Guillaume Crenn, EKINOPS Product line & Marketing Director, recounts a recent technical breakthrough enabling legacy optical equipment to function in tomorrow’s virtualized networks.

Interoperability remains one of the biggest challenges facing operators seeking to software define their networks. Powerful new frameworks, like OpenDaylight (ODL), are needed to disaggregate and rearchitect the network and enable the level of automation and programmability that will, eventually, deliver virtualization’s ‘new age’ of flexibility.

Designed by the Open Daylight Project - a global, collaborative community of vendor and user organizations, of which EKINOPS is a part - ODL is a modular, open framework designed to enable commercial solutions to address a variety of virtualized network use cases, such as automated service delivery, Cloud and NFV, resource optimization and network visibility and control.

A critical hurdle to overcome on the road to enabling such uses cases is how to establish the level of interoperability between the network’s newly separated components and functions in such a way that they can be managed and orchestrated. This is a complex task that requires utilizing controllers for both northbound and southbound communication throughout the virtualized network.

In the world of optical transport, enabling this controller-based communication in ODL is the job of OpenDaylight TransportPCE, a collaborative project led by Orange, EKINOPS and Orange Labs whose work describes an open-source application running on top of the OpenDaylight controller. Its primary function is to control an optical transport infrastructure using a non-proprietary South Bound Interface (SBI).
