ACTN has started in IETF to address architecture and requirements for both information model and data/protocol models. One of the main objectives of ACTN is to provide scalable performance for a large-scale automated network that comprises a number of multi-layer and multi-domain networks. To address this objective, a new open-source project has been launched (https://sites.google.com/site/openactn/home) and actual implementation is in progress in both ONOS and ODL. This presentation will include an early implementation experience to address interoperability and scalable high-performance in the context of multi-platform controllers (e.g., ONOS and ODL), multi-vendor and multi-technology (e.g., packet and optical).
Pertinent audience who can benefit with this presentation includes implementers of ONOS/ODL, operators, vendors, application providers and so on. ACTN can provide benefits to the ecosystem in many ways. It promotes open-source multi-vendor inter-operability, easy adoption in the dev ops environments, and proof of concept demo/trial with operators to guide industry.
