Different reasons make SDN an attractive choice for Service Providers like GÉANT: new functionality, improvement of flexibility and automation of operational processes. In this demonstration, we present the SDNization of GÉANT Open service, which is currently delivered through a set of Open eXchange Points (OXP) based on traditional (non-SDN) solutions. Using this service, GÉANT customers and approved commercial partners can interconnect via Layer 2 circuits. The SDN based service has been built on top of the Open Networking Operating System (ONOS) and runs on white box switches for the data plane. The live demo is based on remote access to the real prototype which runs in the GÉANT Cambridge Lab. During the demo we show how an operator can deploy the services and how the SDN network can be monitored and managed. Finally, we demonstrate how the infrastructure is able to automatically manage network events and adapt to network changes.

Abstract

Different reasons make SDN an attractive choice for Service Providers like GÉANT: new functionality, improvement of flexibility and automation of operational processes. In this demonstration, we present the SDNization of GÉANT Open service, which is currently delivered through a set of Open eXchange Points (OXP) based on traditional (non-SDN) solutions. Using this service, GÉANT customers and approved commercial partners can interconnect via Layer 2 circuits. The SDN based service has been built on top of the Open Networking Operating System (ONOS) and runs on white box switches for the data plane. The live demo is based on remote access to the real prototype which runs in the GÉANT Cambridge Lab. During the demo we show how an operator can deploy the services and how the SDN network can be monitored and managed. Finally, we demonstrate how the infrastructure is able to automatically manage network events and adapt to network changes.
