The Emerging Control Hierarchy for Service Provider SDN-Enabled Networks

This white paper examines how the control hierarchy for SDN networks is converging toward a three-tier structure, with a service orchestrator, a network controller, and multiple domain controllers. The benefits are plenty, including faster innovation, a stable ecosystem of collaborating parties, and flexibility to replace building blocks with minimal effort and without vendor lock-in.

Multilayer Requirements for NBI of IP/MPLS Domain Controllers

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.

Multilayer Requirements for NBI of Optical Domain Controllers

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.
