Infinera Demos Transport SDN at Nissho Labs

Infinera has demonstrated its converged packet-optical technology and Transport Software Defined Network (SDN) on an Infinera DTN-X network at Nissho Labs NETFrontier Center in Tokyo.


Key aspects of the demonstration included Ethernet packet aggregation, VLAN switching, and transport of MPLS pseudo-wires with signaling over 500G super-channel based OTN ODUflex transport.

The demonstration of Transport SDN featured a prototype Open Transport Switch running on the Infinera DTN-X and working in conjunction with an external SDN controller and various network applications. The SDN controller provisioned bandwidth services on demand across a network comprised of DTN-X nodes using the OpenFlow protocol. The demonstration further leveraged service-ready super-channel capacity, flexible Bandwidth Virtualization, and a standards-based control plane to provide an optimal platform to deliver Transport SDN functionality with the DTN-X.

“Infinera’s goal is to converge Ethernet and MPLS technology into the transport layer on the DTN-X to increase the efficiency of core networks for our customers with an Intelligent Transport Network," said Dave Welch, Infinera Co-Founder, Executive Vice President and CTO. "This demonstration is an important step to prove that Ethernet, MPLS, Transport SDN and the Open Transport Switch technologies can be seamlessly integrated within this architecture.”
