Confidential. 66 Software Defined Networking Software-defined networking (SDN) is a current trend for future Network development of any kind Key objective: Virtualize the network and converge the orchestration of the virtualized networks with VMs in the data centers to create a true network-supported "Cloud" Key component: Open interface between a (centralized) control and the forwarding plane for SDN. One possible solution: OpenFlow (defined by ONF) Focused on packet networks – emerging to Transport Assumed/hoped/dreamed key benefits: Simplicity Vendor independency Reduced costs (CAPEX & OPEX) Complete Network overview Simplified Operation …

Confidential. 10 Network Virtualization - Definition Any form of partitioning or combining a set of network resources, and presenting it in an abstracted form to users such that each user, through his set of resources, has a unique, separate view of the network. [Wang et al., JLT, 12/2012] User: Data center tenants, virtual machines, workloads or applications. Resources: Fundamental (nodes, links) or derived (topologies), can be virtualized recursively. Requirements: User isolation, configuration independence, elasticity and programmability. Virtual Network 1 Virtual Network 2 Networks 1 & 2

18 © 2013 ADVA Optical Networking. All rights reserved. Confidential. 18 Summary Optical network virtualization offers cloud providers & tenants high-bandwidth, low-latency connectivity on demand. Different models for optical network virtualization exist. A compromise between hiding the optical complexity and exposing the optical topology is required. Open approaches based on standardized GMPLS or emerging OpenFlow technologies are possible.
