Coriant Joins Industry Leading Service Providers to Demonstrate Multi-Vendor, Multi-Domain LSO Service Orchestration at MEF17

Open Ecosystem Collaboration with Windstream and CenturyLink Showcases End-User Value of Agile, Assured, and Orchestrated Services Powered by SDN and LSO

NAPERVILLE, Illinois, 8 November 2017 – Coriant, a leading supplier of packet optical, IP, and SDN solutions to Tier 1 global service providers and web-scale Internet operators, today announced that it will demonstrate multi-vendor, multi-domain SDN and LSO-enabled service orchestration as part of its participation at MEF17 in Orlando, Florida from November 13-16.

In an open ecosystem Proof of Concept (PoC) demonstration in collaboration with Windstream, a leading provider of advanced network communications, Coriant’s Transcend SDN transport controller software will be used together with multi-domain Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO) to support on-demand, end-to-end service activation – the automated turning up and down of Windstream’s high-speed, high capacity SDNow transport solutions in 10G bandwidth increments. The Coriant Transcend™ SDN Transport Controller will also be featured in a PoC showcase in collaboration with CenturyLink that focuses on LSO Service Orchestration Functionality (SOF) Topology Engine capabilities in a multi-vendor environment. These innovative PoC showcases will take place during the conference in the MEF17 Networking Hall at the Loews Sapphire Falls Resort in Orlando, Florida.
