AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Packet Design CTO Cengiz Alaettinoglu will address the SDN & OpenFlow World Congress in The Hague, Netherlands, this week on the SDN challenges facing service providers. He will explore the critical components for SDN management and orchestration (MANO) in complex, multi-service networks, plus new protocols and open source developments that enable end-to-end service overlays in the WAN.
Session Title: “SDN MANO for Multi-Service Networks”
Topic: Running multiple applications on a converged network is difficult due to different performance requirements, growth rates, and fault-tolerance characteristics. Another challenge is an increase in the rate of service activation and deactivation requests combined with a demand for faster service provisioning times – from weeks to hours, and even seconds.
While SDN applied to the WAN can help address these challenges, it also creates management issues. These include loss of visibility into network changes and the need to capture engineering expertise in SDN applications. To provision network resources dynamically – accommodating different service types, variable demands, and failures – SDN architectures must have an intelligence layer. An SDN controller can simplify and speed provisioning, but topology, traffic, and performance analytics are required to make intelligent, automated traffic engineering possible.
Date and Time: Thursday, Oct. 13 at 4:45 p.m. CEST
Packet Design will demo its SDN MANO Platform and SDN traffic engineering application in booth number 117 at the event.
Alaettinoglu will also present a session on SDN MANO at Futurecom in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Monday, Oct. 17 at 10:10 a.m. BRST.
