Integrated control of the IP and optical layers is one of the main use cases for SDN in SP networks. It promises to change the way SP networks are planned and operated. It cuts CAPEX by more than 40%; simplifies operations; improves network resiliency; and enables cloud-era connectivity on demand. However, the solution must be carefully architected to support multi-vendor environments. I will discuss different solution architectures and focus on a highly modular framework that enables a pre-standard working solution today, while allowing for independent evolution of its components by various vendors to support emerging standards. I will demonstrate this solution running on commercial network gear from multiple optical and router vendors in the lab of Telefonica. I will then survey the main use cases for the technology and demonstrate how they are addressed by this solution.
