Dynamic Provisioning in Multi-Layer, Multi-Vendor Networks

Time 07/13/10 10:10AM-10:50AM

Session Abstract

Transport networks are generally constructed from multiple networking technologies and organized into multiple layers. Multi-layer Research and Education networks often include at least an IP-based inter-working layer, a DWDM optical transport layer, and increasingly a provision-able, carrier-quality Ethernet link layer. Operators of such networks are faced with the requirement to provide rapid allocation of resources within each of these layers, in order to serve the needs of an ever-growing diversity of applications. To meet these needs on ever-shrinking timescales, operators are increasingly turning to multi-layer control plane technologies, to streamline the provisioning process across layers. As such, networks are generally also homgeneous with regard to vendor, it is also becoming increasingly important to ensure control plane technologies interoperate between vendors and within layers. This presentation describes recent advances in multi-layer control technologies, and outlines key areas in a typical network where multi-vendor control plane inter-operation can ease the overall provisioning and maintenance burden.
