Huawei Completes Wireless Transport SDN PoC

Huawei participated in a multi-vendor Wireless Transport SDN Proof of Concept (PoC) with the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) in an event hosted last month by Telefonica and IMDEA Networks Institute in Madrid.

Two demonstration cases were tested, which included capacity-driven air interface and flow-based shaping. The capacity-driven use case demonstrates a network's ability to adapt to traffic demand and to efficiently optimize wireless resources for a more energy efficient operation of the transport network. The flow-based shaping use case demonstrates the network's ability to adapt and respond to changing conditions such as the weather impacting wireless transport networks.

Huawei supplied its RTN900 microwave equipment with OpenFlow interface. Four other wireless transport vendors and one router vendor also joined in the PoC.
