(Raanana, March 9, 2015) Sedona System’s co-founder and CTO, Dr. Ori Gerstel, is going to present a joint paper on “split control responsibility in multilayer networks” at the MPLS World Congress taking place in Paris, March 20, 2015.
Together with Mazen Khaddam, Principal Lead Network Architect of Cox Communications, Gerstel will discuss some of the key issues regarding multilayer control, including the following.
- Who is responsible for restoring optical connections after failure, an SDN controller or the distributed control plane of the network?
- In case of distributed control, is the router responsible for initiating the process or is it the Optical layer?
Gerstel and Khaddam will answer these questions according to general guiding principles and assess the pros and cons of each approach.
