The NetFusion Intelligence and Automation App Platform is the first control platform that converges the layers, automatically discovering multi-vendor, multi-domain topology and traffic for both Optical and IP/MPLS layers, as well as the cross-layer connections between them.
This white paper describes the NetFusion Intelligence and Automation App Platform, which enables multivendor discovery of the Optical layer, IP/MPLS layer, and cross-connections between the two layers. The accompanying NetFusion Explorer UI enables you to visualize and explore this multi-layer network model in near real-time, showing optically-aware IP/MPLS routing and conversely, IP/MPLS-informed optical paths.
Heavy Reading recently hosted a webinar on “The SDN-Driven IP-Optical Renaissance.” The speakers were Sterling Perrin, senior analyst at Heavy Reading, Ori Gerstel, Sedona’s CTO and co-founder, and Steve Vogelsang, President and CTO of Nokia’s IP/Optical Business Group.
In this video, Sedona’s Director of Systems Engineering, Rached Blili, demonstrates the powerful capabilities of the NetFusion platform and its NetFusion Explorer user interface.
This paper focuses on requirements for the NBI of Optical domain controllers in a multilayer architecture. The NBI of the optical domain controller has four main functions: topology discovery, monitoring, provisioning, and path computation. These requirements generally apply to both DWDM and OTN systems, with the obvious omission of feasibility limitations that only apply to the DWDM layer.
This paper focuses on requirements for the NBI of IP/MPLS domain controllers in a multilayer architecture. The NBI of the IP/MPLS domain controller has four main functions: topology and traffic discovery, monitoring, provisioning, and simulations for what-if analysis.
Sedona’s NetFusion IP/Optical Network controller successfully fulfilled the role of multidomain controller in the Optical Internetworking Forum’s (OIF) Transport API (T-API) interoperability demonstration late this year. NetFusion was the top-level controller and orchestrator of services across multiple optical domains and the central interface to provisioning applications for the entire test network in Telefonica’s lab.

In the third episode of our Sedona Sessions series, CTO Ori Gerstel explains why multi-layer control is pivotal to SDN deployment. Multi-layer control turns what is often perceived as a monumental and daunting task into a manageable, evolutionary process.
In this Heavy Reading-hosted webinar, speakers Sterling Perrin, a senior analyst at Heavy Reading, and our CTO and co-founder, Ori Gerstel discuss “The State of SDN Deployment and How Converged IP/Optical Control Can Shake it Up,”
In the second episode of our Sedona Sessions, CTO Ori Gerstel explains how multi-layer control boosts network resiliency, improves its ability to recover from faults, and at the same time lowers costs.
