Ciena Analyst Day 2012: Steve Alexander

  1. 1. AN OPn DISCUSSION ABOUT THE NEW NETWORK ARCHITECTURESteve Alexander | Chief Technology Officer
  2. 2. THE NATURE OFCONNECTIVITY IS CHANGINGCAPACITY & CONNECTIVITY ZONE OF SERVICE PROLIFERATION OFREQUIREMENTS UNCERTAINTY OVER-THE-TOP SERVICES CONSUMER CONNECTING MACHINES * SERVICE CONNECTING PEOPLE ENTERPRISE CONNECTING PLACES Very large dynamic range of service characteristics
  3. 3. AND THE EXPECTED RATEOF GROWTH IS STAGGERING Exponential growth driven by ubiquitous mobility and “Internet of Things” 2012 2008 2004 BY THE MID-2020s, THE AMOUNT OF TRAFFIC CARRIED IN THE MID-2000s ROUNDS TO ZEROSources: Cisco Visual Networking Index, IBM, and Ciena internal analysis
  4. 4. ACCESS TO CONTENT IS DRIVING TRAFFIC PATTERNS ACCESS AGGREGATION METRO CORE BACKBONES CLOUD CONTENT CENTERS INTERNET MOBILE & FIXED ACCESS Need a more efficient way to move traffic to content centers PRIVATE METRO CORE CONTENT CENTER LOCAL PROVIDER CONTENT CENTER CLOUD CONTENT CENTERS BUSINESS SERVICESTraffic flows from edge to content centers; INTERNET large datasets move across cloud
  5. 5. INCREMENTAL CHANGE ISN‟TEVEN CLOSE TO SUFFICIENT
  6. 6. A NEW MODEL FOR NETWORKING THEPERFORMANCE-ON-DEMAND APPLICATION ECOSYSTEM COMPUTE STORE CONNECT Reduces cost at scale Makes network programmable Opens the network via software applications
  7. 7. OPn CONCEIVES OF THENETWORK IN TWO PARTS… USERS TO CONTENT CONTENT CONTENT CENTER CENTER STORERESIDENTIALWIRELESS COMPUTEENTERPRISE CONNECT …each of which is flexible ― automatically adapting to changes in capacity needs, traffic type, and user or application location
  8. 8. OPn STRATEGICALLY DESIGNEDFOR FLEXIBILITY Minimize complex locations Convergence of Adapt to uncertainty devices & layers Virtualize resources Simplify forwarding Distributed control plane Rapid service creation Network analytics Open interfaces
  9. 9. USE LOWEST POSSIBLE NETWORKLAYER TO MINIMIZE COST PER BIT HIGHER COST LAYER 4-7 L4-7 High content touch/ + FUNCTIONS contingent on IP IP/MPLS MPLS-TP ETHERNET Low-touch/ transparent to IP OTN DWDM Capacity LOWER COST
  10. 10. MINIMIZE EQUIPMENT VOLUME x COMPLEXITY
  11. 11. VIRTUALIZE PHYSICAL RESOURCESFOR SCALE & EFFICIENCY CLIENT NETWORK INTERFACES INTERFACES PACKET FABRIC VS VS VS VS VS VS VS VS VS MPLS-TP PBB MPLS-TE CIRCUIT FABRIC VS VS VS VS VS VS VS VS VS SONET SDH OTN PHYSICAL SWITCH NETWORK
  12. 12. NETWORK APPLICATION SOFTWAREDEFINES THE BEHAVIOR OF THE „CONNECT‟ PORTIONOF THE PROGRAMMABLE PLATFORM
  13. 13. VIRTUALIZED NETWORK =DIFFERENTIATED USER EXPERIENCE CUSTOMIZED SET OF APPLICATIONS PER VIRTUAL NETWORK TERABIT/S CONNECTIONS
