LOS ANGELES, March 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei today demonstrated its IP + optical and Transport Software-Defined Networking (TSDN) applications at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition (OFC).
The Huawei IP + optical application showcased at the event comprised a number of features including a graphical multi-layer network view of the SDN application system, automatic resource discovery, automatic IP link setup, automatic service provisioning and multi-layer network protection. Huawei also presented bandwidth-on-demand (BoD), transport network virtualization and innovative VTS2.0 applications, which provide network level services that can be customized by tenants, as well as cloud-like resilience.
The Huawei IP + optical and Transport SDN applications are based on the Open Network Operating System (ONOS) and are the first of their kind to be developed through the operator-oriented SDN open source platform. This demonstration marks a key milestone in Huawei's efforts to advance SDN from open source development into a technology that can be used commercially.
During the OFC event, the Huawei ONOS-based Smart Network Controller (SNC) and NetMatrix service synergy platform were demonstrated using a centralized software system to remotely control a real network constructed with Huawei NE series routers and Huawei OptiX OSN series smart optical devices located in Dallas, Texas.
ONOS is the industry's first open-source SDN control platform which focuses on operators' networks and service requirements. Led by leading global operators and equipment suppliers, the platform considers various operator demands including high performance, reliability, security, and scalability. Its robust architecture design makes it an ideal choice for operators who need to develop their business in the future.
Huawei recently announced that together with ONOS and Open Networking Foundation (ONF), they will build an open and innovative SDN industry ecosystem, enabling operators to accelerate SDN commercialization.
Huawei is committed to developing SDN architectures that support operator business transformations and innovations. These architectures will help to improve operational efficiency, achieve flexible service deployment and open network capabilities. To date, Huawei has carried out over 40 joint innovation projects with leading global operators, and is the industry leader for SDN commercialization.
The Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition takes place in Los Angeles from March 22 to 26. It is the largest global conference and exposition for optical communications and networking professionals. Huawei will showcase its latest products and solutions at booth 2309 with company representatives scheduled to speak at the event.

Open Network Operating System (ONOS) is a nonprofit open source community platform initiated by Stanford University, UC Berkeley, and other well-known universities, which are the first to develop the SDN technology. ONOS aims at setting up an open source and distributed network operating system control platform to meet carrier-class requirements on network services.

The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) is a user-driven organization dedicated to accelerating the adoption of open Software-Defined Networking (SDN) through open standards, market education, and software development. SDN provides operators with an extremely dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and adaptable architecture that gives administrators unprecedented programmability, automation, and control. Implementing SDN via open standards, interfaces, and software frees operators from vendor lock-in. Early market experience demonstrates that it is utterly transformational. Today, ONF's 150 companies and 3000 volunteers advance all aspects of SDN. For more details, visit https://www.opennetworking.org.
