The Optical Transport working group will address SDN and OpenFlow® Standard-based control capabilities for optical transport networks. The work will include identifying use cases, defining a target reference architecture for controlling optical transport networks incorporating the OpenFlow® Standard, and identifying and creating OpenFlow® protocol extensions.
Completed four use cases including Enterprise, Network Virtualization, Service Provider Data Center Interconnection and Packet-Optical Interconnection
Goals for 2014
- Develop a reference architecture and framework document describing terminology, modeling of optical transport switches and networks, and utilization of virtualization and network abstraction in optical transport networks
- Formulate an information model representing generic optical transport networks and optical switches, and the corresponding data models that can be used by ONF protocols
- Pursue joint prototyping activities with OIF
