Initiate a New Level of Control

Customize Delivery for the Dynamic Cloud

Software Defined Networking

The popularity of cloud applications continues to exert pressure on service provider business models. An SDN solution decouples control of the network from within the network elements to an external centralized controller, abstracts the underlying hardware forwarding infrastructure from the applications, and transforms today’s rigid transport infrastructure into a highly programmable network. This new, highly adaptive network is capable of flexible, efficient, and seamless scalability. Service providers can leverage flexible transport networks that are ready to deliver bandwidth on-demand for consumer and business cloud applications. SDN enables new revenue-generating services and empowers more efficient network utilization.

The Coriant Transcend™ SDN Solution supports end-to-end multi-layer programmable control that enables network operators to streamline workflow and service activation, customize network behavior to meet the flexible demands of new applications, and provide service differentiation. The following elements comprise the Coriant Transcend™ SDN Solution:

  • The Coriant Transcend™ SDN Transport Controller and Coriant Transcend™ SDN Packet Controller
  • The SDN enablement of the Coriant Dynamic Optical Cloud™ product and services portfolio, including industry-leading metro-to-core packet optical transport (mTera® UTP, 7100 Series, hiT 7300, 7090 Series) and smart routers (8600 Series, 8800 Series)
  • Demonstration and evaluation support for an ODL orchestrator and applications that are available as a blueprint for business case and technology evaluation of SDN and for the demonstration of the Coriant Transcend™ SDN Transport Controller and packet optical transport solutions
