Our customers are experiencing a network revolution with a world of multilayer, multivendor, multidomain information at their fingertips. Using NetFusion’s discovery and visibility capabilities, they have reported 10 common use cases and identified why these solutions are critical to business.
The NetFusion Intelligence and Automation App Platform is the first control platform that converges the layers, automatically discovering multivendor, multidomain topology and traffic for both Optical and IP/MPLS layers, as well as the cross-layer connections between them.
Based on our recent webinar with Light Reading and Nokia, this white paper provides a detailed look at the new SDN-based IP and optical integration renaissance, including the market drivers, technology enablers, primary applications and use cases, leading operator success stories, and work yet to be done.
The NetFusion Intelligence and Automation App Platform enables multivendor discovery of the Optical layer, IP/MPLS layer, and the cross-connections between the two layers. The accompanying NetFusion Explorer UI enables you to visualize and explore this multilayer network model in near realtime, showing optically-aware IP/MPLS routing and conversely, IP/MPLS-informed optical paths.
This paper focuses on requirements for the NBI of Optical domain controllers in a multilayer architecture.
